WiTech "Fast Deployment WiMAX CSN" solution is devised to help operators timely deploying a future-proof WiMAX Connectivity Services Network (CSN) with a stepped approach, one platform at time and taking into account the specific needs, priorities and timing of the operator. This solution quickly provide the key functionalities the operator needs to commercially launch its WiMAX network and so accelerates the never-enough shortened “time to customer”. All at an affordable initial investment and a no-surprise TCO.

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
