Integrating Dynamic Networks and e-Infrastructures

Time 04/24/17 03:00PM-04:00PM

Room Mount Vernon A

Session Abstract

Service Providers and end users are readily familiar with the concepts of marketplaces, on-demand provisioning and centralized management when it comes commissioning IaaS resources. However, evolving use cases and user expectations of how services are being bundled and delivered are driving the requirement towards integrating network providers into the service management lifecycle process and ensuring end-to-end management of that process.

Here we will discuss the architecture and design of modular OSS/BSS components based on lightweight standardized specifications, the decoupling of service and infrastructure and the orchestration and automation between OSS systems (such as provisioning, ticketing, monitoring) and BSS systems (such as CRM, ITSM, service/order management portals) along with a coherent information model. By creating open source, reusable software modules and simplified APIs we can achieve interoperable OSS/BSS stacks which will also allow for east-west interoperability between different provider domains.

The question we ask is how do we evolve our OSS/BSS systems to be part of the global market place – how do we combined services from multiple providers, such as the local campus, regional network, NRENs, as well as IaaS/PaaS services from public e-Infrastructures or commercial service providers?
