Incognito Software Systems has introduced its Fiber Service Orchestration Solution, which the company says aids service providers as they transition from fixed copper-based service delivery to IP-based fiber infrastructure. Use of the orchestration platform provides process automation and accelerates service rollouts, the company asserts.
While the move to fiber has several benefits in an era where gigabit broadband is becoming more prevalent, operators will find themselves dealing with new CPE, element management systems, and process flows that aren’t easily integrated into legacy operational support systems (OSS) and business support systems (BSS), says Incognito. The company points to a recent survey conducted with the help of Heavy Reading that 40% of service provider respondents facing this situation plan to retrofit legacy OSS, while 30% expect to go with a new OSS stack.
Incognito says the Fiber Service Orchestration Solution is useful in either scenario. Features the company highlights include:
- A pre-integrated fiber services orchestration stack that includes automated order management, service activation, provisioning, firmware management, and diagnostics
- Support for various PON architectures, including those leverage DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON (DPoE) or GPON (DPoG)
- An open, modular architecture with a library of proven APIs and standardized business processes
- Support for delivery of Internet of Things (IoT) services such as home security, with adapters for integrating to third-party cloud orchestration services
- Ability to “scale down” to meet the requirements Tier 2 and 3 service providers.
