  4. 4. Major Operational issues <ul><li>No correlated view of customer, service and network resources. </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing need to churn out commodity based (voice & data) services along with premium content based services instantly. </li></ul><ul><li>Fragmented OSS / BSS islands without common or single view of the operational ecosystem. </li></ul><ul><li>The ‘Multiplicity’ effect without standard naming conventions. </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of end - to - end visibility leading to poor control. </li></ul><ul><li>Resource utilization is not optimized. </li></ul><ul><li>Strict SLA conformance </li></ul>
  5. 5. Introducing InstaServ <ul><li>Application communication framework via a common metamodel based on SID business entities. </li></ul><ul><li>Use case driven model based on the e-TOM guidelines. </li></ul><ul><li>Defines processes through interfaces. </li></ul><ul><li>Standard Nomenclature to reduce data mapping issues. </li></ul><ul><li>SOA realization through Web Services. </li></ul>Refer to the embedded document for a brief introduction to Insta Serv
  6. 6. Motivation <ul><li>Need to have a single correlated view of the business entities viz. Customer, service, network, agreements, roles etc. </li></ul><ul><li>To de-couple business processes from internal software code. </li></ul><ul><li>Need to have a common interface for speed up service delivery and maintenance. </li></ul><ul><li>Tuning existing systems to e-TOM business process recommendations and mapping them to the SID nomenclature. </li></ul><ul><li>Need to implement a SOA based architecture to implement NGOSS contract based guidelines. </li></ul><ul><li>Use case based implementation versus simple product implementation and integration approach. </li></ul>

  12. 12. USE CASE - Service fulfillment <ul><li>The customer provides a Service Order. </li></ul><ul><li>Initial Pre Qualification and a limited local loop testing is carried out to determine feasibility of service. </li></ul><ul><li>Inside plant DSLAM ports are assigned to the service request. </li></ul><ul><li>Jumpering at the MDF is done to connect the local loop to the DSLAM. </li></ul><ul><li>ATM PVC provisioning and port activation is done manually by the NOC team through the vendor specific NMS and EMS. </li></ul><ul><li>Once the ports have been activated , notification is sent to the customer. </li></ul><ul><li>After customer acceptance , notification is sent to the billing group to start billing for the activated service. </li></ul>How the Service Provider perceives a DSL order fulfillment Focus is on the Technology !

  16. 16. Use Case : Service Assurance <ul><li>Fault Manager displays a network level fault with a certain degree or a customer trouble ticket is assigned to a NOC professional.. </li></ul><ul><li>NOC professionals view the problem detail and determine the existing network topology and isolate the problem. </li></ul><ul><li>Run troubleshooting procedures to resolve the network problem through vendor specific EMS and NMS. </li></ul><ul><li>Once the problem has been resolved or the network fault has been repaired the trouble ticket is closed and the customer is informed. </li></ul><ul><li>If the problem cannot be solved directly by the NOC team then it needs to be staged to other teams or field engineers. </li></ul>How the Service Provider perceives Service Assurance function Network oriented & Reactive process !
