  • Amdocs MarketOne / RevenueOne

    The world of digital, cloud and the rise of 5G create new opportunities for operators to expand into new services, revenue opportunities and experiences. To enable this and support complex business operations, service providers worldwide must embark on transformation journeys centered on the cloud. Amdocs is leading this shift at an accelerated pace with the industry’s most comprehensive suite of cloud-native solutions built to accelerate the CSP journey to the cloud across BSS, OSS and Media, alongside a rich set of cloud practices around the future mode of operations, cloud migration and agile DevOps.
  • Ericsson CENX Services Assurance

  • TechM NetOps.AI Orchestration

    5G Networks offer the possibility of creating tailor-made, SLA driven services which enhance service performance and customer satisfaction. The result is higher service uptake and ARPU. Running multiple logical networks on a common physical infrastructure creates the possibility of offering business use-case specific offerings, which therefore enables B2B2X models.
  • Nokia Digital Operations

    Come see how Nokia and AWS are collaborating to re-define orchestration and slicing for the 5G world with Nokia’s Dynamic Operations suite for AWS Outposts. In this scenario, you will see an enterprise ordering an Outpost for edge computing applications, like mobile robot control, to connect dynamically through 5G slicing. Once the Outpost arrives and is connected, we will show how a 5G network slice connecting robot devices through 5G radio access to the Outpost and an AWS Region is initiated through AWS Marketplace and orchestrated and automated by Nokia DO Suite.
  • OpeNet

    Openet will show how operators can use integrated policy and charging to manage and monetize 5G network slices. We will show how operators or enterprises can easily configure different characteristics, such as Quality of Service and latency in order to leverage 5G network slices. By applying different charging rules for combinations of slices and QoS levels operators can price their services based on network performance and offer SLAs to enterprise customers. With integrated policy and charging running on AWS operators can manage and monetise 5G edge based use cases, opening up new revenue streams and enabling edge based use cases.

    Mavenir Abstract
  • Mavenir

    Recognized as the most damaging of all non-technical fraud methods, Subscription Fraud is the gateway for many other telecom fraud scams, representing almost $2billion in revenue losses for telecom operators globally. Perpetrators don’t just stop with illegally obtaining service, they usually use it as a precursor to other types of fraud such as Premium Rate Fraud and International Revenue Share Fraud (IRSF). Using AWS Aurora, Amazon MQ, Amazon EKS and Amazon Athena Mobileum developed an innovative cloud solution that specifically addresses subscription fraud, ensuring the subscriber on the Point-of-sale the other and on the end of the transaction isn’t a fraudster—without sacrificing a legitimate customer’s experience.
  • Mycom OSI

MYCOM OSI’s Assurance Cloud™, powered by AWS, supports some of the largest, most complex network operations in the world. This demo explores how MYCOM OSI’s highly scalable 5G Roll-out Accelerator - an Assurance Cloud™ solution – enables rapid 5G service monetization, and why the predictive assurance capabilities in MYCOM OSI’s evolving AI/ML solution are essential for the monetization of the next generation of advanced 5G services.
