Integrated Multi-Vendor Management

One of the greatest barriers to getting integrated multi-vendor management mandate underway by the communication service provider has been the lack of collaboration by vendors, carriers and standards bodies to address the problem together. Vendor-independent multi-vendor paradigm with a pronounced open architecture, specifically designed for advanced management of earth stations, headends, backbones, datacenters, HFC networks, digital television platforms, satellite uplinks & downlinks is the need of the communication service providers squeezed by ever reducing margins and increased OPEX in a highly uncertain and competitive landscape.

Very few communication service providers have single vendor networks, and the overhead and challenges of integrating heterogeneous OSS/BSS applications and systems with equipment across different technologies are expensive and time-consuming.

Kumaran Integrated Multi-Vendor Management solution empowers the communication service provider operation team unconditional and guaranteed interface with any device or system from any vendor, irrespective of its interface, proprietary or standard, and this shall be proven through a sufficiently wide variety of deployed integrations. This effectively prevents any potential technical limitations from impacting on the roll-out and deployment. The intent is to consolidate the synthesized information from each family of OSS/BSS to an end-to-end health monitoring, providing Remote Monitoring Capabilities to the user. Additionally, the system would enable a Centralized Configuration Management of the converged landscape to accommodate changes/updates and patches.

Business Challenge

  • Lack of consolidated view at device, network, service and customer layers
  • Large numbers of disparate and disconnected OSS/BSS systems
  • Difficulty prioritizing based on customer/revenue impact
  • Inability to perform end-to-end intelligent root cause analysis
  • Infrastructure complexity inhibits use of new frameworks
