Kabel Deutschland Upgrades its OSS Capabilities with Comarch OSS Solutions

Feb 14, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Comarch, a global software house and system integrator, has just signed an agreement with Kabel Deutschland, Germanys largest cable operator, for the optimization of network and service management processes.

Cable operators currently have to deal with increasingly complex operations and services, coupled with strong competition from traditional telecom operators. Offering multiple IP services requires scalability that can only be delivered with the right tools for the efficient management of network resources and services, as well as for provisioning processes.

Kabel Deutschland decided to face this challenge and develop its network infrastructure to support the needs of its customers. The operator wanted to optimize its legacy network and service management toolset towards enabling next practice approach to network plan, build and run that would be ready for the change.

Comarchs solutions proved to be the perfect fit for what they required both in terms of ensuring cost efficiency and in offering systems that not only suited Kabel Deutschlands current needs, but also would be scalable enough to support any future development of their network infrastructure.

The goals of the implementation include: optimizing Kabel Deutschlands network expansion processes and operations, as well as supporting the growth of the operators network coverage and capacity. These objectives are supported with the new standardized Comarch Network& Service Inventory and Inventory Planning , while Comarch OSS Process Management will improve customer experience by assuring full control over incident and problem resolution processes for the operator. Thanks to having a single, consolidated platform for managing all resources, Kabel Deutschland will be able to significantly shorten the time-to-market of their innovative services.

"As we look to expand our offer and provide our customers with new services at competitive prices, we needed to significantly increase the efficiency of our business processes and speed up the rollout of network infrastructure. We needed a partner that had experience on the German market and in the cable industry. We believe Comarch solutions will enable us to reach more subscribers with an extended and modernized network, which will also improve service quality and increase customer satisfaction." says Gerhard Mack, Senior Vice President Technical Operations at Kabel Deutschland " Cable operators are one of Comarchs strategically important target groups. Our goal is to help them reduce redundancies and increase the efficiency of plan-build-run processes, in order to gain a strong competitive advantage. I am positive that Comarch OSS products will provide Kabel Deutschland with the required system scalability, while lowering operational costs." says Piotr Piatosa, Vice President Telecommunications and Member of the Board at Comarch Read more about Comarchs systems for supporting telecom network management About Kabel Deutschland Kabel Deutschland (KD), Germanys largest cable operator, offers its customers digital, high definition (HD) and analog TV, Pay TV and DVR offerings, Video on Demand, broadband Internet (up to 100 Mbit/s) and fixed-line Phone services via cable as well as mobile services in cooperation with an industry partner.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
