WiTech Fast Deployment WiMAX CSNTM October 2009
WiMAX Forum Network Reference Model (The Theory)
Moving Into Reality The WiMAX Forum NRM is an important “reference”, but isn’t enough 1. Focusing primarily on the radio access infrastructure can bring troubles 2. The CSN Is Not a “Second Step” Matter! There isn’t certified interoperability inside the Core Network Building the Connectivity Service Network (CSN) is a critical piece of the network deployment NMS AAA Subscriber and Service Management Policy Function Rating Provisioning Billing DNS/DHCP Customer Care Application management CRM HA
Deploying a CSN – Some Possible Issues Unproven interoperability. Malfunctions at commercial launch Customers can be more sophisticated than expected Costs can be higher than planned Unexpected customer ramp-up can take by surprise Wrong level of system granularity Limited support for the commercial channels

WiTech Fast Deployment WiMAX CSNTM – Third Step Applying the WiTech BPM-enabled Next-Gen OSS/BSS FrameworkTM
Traditional OSS/BSS Architecture Unfit to support the growing needs of today’s Telco Service providers!
Next-Generation OSS/BSS The OSS/BSS for Next-Gen Telco Service Providers need to support: multiple technologies/networks diverse services complex and interdependent charging principles convergent service definition, rating, billing and customer care All prominent Telco service providers worldwide have formalized in the widely-recognized TM Forum's NGOSS/eTOM guidelines that formal process definition, process repositories, and process engines are fundamental to implement Next-Gen OSS/BSS Business Process Management (BPM) is key, and the separation of business processes from software components is one of the core principles underlying it
The BPM Key Principle: Externalized Process Logic Problem: Embedded process logic in business systems/apps Agility barrier, expense GIS Solution: Decompose business systems into reusable modules (“services”) Billing CRM Expose process logic in a separate solution layer external to systems GW Compose process model in graphical tool Flowchart, accessible to business users ERP Systems / Applications Agile, easily changed Systems / Execute the model on BPM System Applications Connects to systems through standards- Process Model based integration BPM provides a great abstraction for building business systems
