Christian Destre (France Telecom, France): Facing future internet service and network management complexity (UniverSELF project)

  1. 1. unrestricted Christian Destré, Orange Labs Technical Manager of the FP7 UNIVERSELF project Facing Future Internet service and network management complexity
  2. 2. unrestricted Telcos' management operations  Operations in eTOM (TMF) – Processes are instantiated for the CRM network segments (Access, Backhaul, CORE networks) and services – With several organizational entities Operations Fulfillment Assurance Billing & Revenue Management Operations Support & Readiness Service Management & Operations Resource Management & Operations Supplier/Partner Relationship Management Customer Relationship Management Retention & Loyalty Customer Interface Management Selling Resource Data Collection & Distribution Supplier/Partner Interface Management S/P Performance Management S/P Problem Reporting & Management S/P Requisition Management Resource Provisioning Resource Trouble Management Resource Performance Management Service Quality Management Service Problem Management Customer QoS / SLA Management S/P Settlements & Payments Management Service Guiding & Mediation Marketing Fulfillment Response S/PRM Support & Readiness SM&O Support & Readiness RM&O Support & Readiness CRM Support & Readiness Service Configuration & Activation Order Handling Problem Handling Bill Payments & Receivables Mgt. Bill Invoice Management Manage Billing Events Charging Bill Inquiry Handling Resource Mediation & Reporting Manage Workforce  OAM / OSS / BSS – NE/EMS/NMS provided by vendors – OSS/BSS, part of telco IS – Multiple Interfaces and data models issue – Too many tools depending on the management entities and network segments OAM & Network NE NE EMS NMS EMS Multiple Interface Control Plane e2e Transport Plane OAM vi OSS BSS BSS Applications OSS Applications HL R HL R HL R HL R BSS data base OSS data base IS Information System infrastructure
  3. 3. unrestricted Legacy services and network resources (~40 years of R&D)  Network resources – Mobile & fixed convergence – Separated management – IP QoS management complexity – Several mechanisms to configure – Increasing number of devices – Mobile devices, Customer Premise Equipments, …  Services – Facing IP mobile & fixed convergent service management complexity – End to end management issue (QoS, QoE) – IMS – Increasing number of services  Management issues: silo and ossification – From service requirement to network configuration = dedicated (not reused) processes = manual operations and IS static operation made = effort, delay and consistency issue – Change/update of management functions – Extremely costly and time consuming (adding significant costs to OPEX) – No deployment tools for new management functions – Separate Management for Networks & Services – Placement of Management functionality – External management to managed systems
  4. 4. unrestricted Towards Future Internet – Management is the primary enabler  Increasing managed entities : services and devices – M2M, Internet of things  Increasing management tasks – Green Networking and Energy Efficiency  Dynamic / on demand management – Dynamic processes management – On demand service and resource configuration/provisioning related to on demand subscribing or situation evolution  Managing new types of resources and services – Virtual resources (e.g. Cloud Computing, Virtual Networks, Virtual Storage) – Dynamically provisioned and shared Virtual Infrastructure based on different types of Virtual Machines ( e.g. virtual rooters, virtual service components, ..) – Customized services based on customer profile/situation  Interconnection/interoperability & Extensibility – Between network operators, service providers, third parties (e.g. different chains of players) – Higher level of integration  Orchestration of the closed management loops across federated domains or in a single domain  Context and Knowledge plane focus
  5. 5. unrestricted Autonomic Networking/communication, autonomic as enabler  Simplify management at all levels (access networks, core networks, services, fulfillment & assurance) – Potential to reduce OpEx – Various aspects of Self-Chop: Configuration, Healing, Optimization Performance – Cross-technologies – Relies on Standards  Lot of works concerning Autonomic Networking architectures – Need of Unification – Need of being operational and impactful – Related to Telco's processes and governance & trust constraints – Integration of management for Services/Applications with network – Large scale deployability of management functions
  6. 6. unrestricted UNIVERSELF Consortium (FP7-257513)
  7. 7. unrestricted UNIVERSELF Objectives: “Realizing Autonomics for Future Networks” Federating Unification of existing architectures and convergence of network management principles across multiple technological contents Empowering  Embed intelligence inside network equipments Impactful  Impact the telecommunication industry and push towards exploitation of its results Trustworthy  Foster adoption by means of trust and confidence Orange Labs - Research & Development – UniverSelf – 02/12/2010

  10. 10. unrestricted UNIVERSELF: Use case oriented  Perimeter: mono-operator, multi-vendor  Scenario 1: Operators' Service and data management – Lack of a global end to end view of all data (both Users and net data), especially in NGN – Lack of mappings/views correlating these data to services at different levels – Cross-layer network data are not used for optimizing use of network resources & the management – No means of using data flows for enabling new business opportunities (e.g. brokering specific data to third parties)  Scenario 2: SON for Radio Access and Core Networks – Evolving the management plane to allow the introduction of high level policies – Enhancing cognitive capabilities in SON enabled network elements, including learning, decision making and knowledge sharing geared towards enforcing policies – Framework for coordinated SON mechanisms and entities to enforce policies  Scenario 3: Future Internet Services Management and Network Resource Optimization – Configure and manage the necessary number of network components for Future Internet services: Real-time experience social networking, global inter-connectivity, cooperation services – Easing configuration / deployment

  12. 12. unrestricted Conclusion  More and more complexity to manage  Management and managebility are the key enablers for realizing Future Internet – Unified management  Embedding Autonomicity in shared Infrastructure – With trust  Operational impact and related standards

  16. 16. unrestricted Conclusion  Substitute KISS principle with KII principle KISS principle ““Keep it Simple, Stupid - today optimisation is tomorrow’s bottleneck” (Source: D. Isenberg) KII principle “ Keep it Intelligent – today fundamental is tomorrow’s secondary” (Source: A. Galis)
