MYCOM OSI becomes the world’s first service assurance vendor to support a hybrid cloud SaaS offering on AWS Outposts

Brings the advantages of cloud to on-premise private data centers and run mission-critical service assurance workloads

LONDON, UK – December 1st, 2020 – MYCOM OSI, the Assurance Cloud Company™ and leading independent provider of Assurance, Automation and Analytics solutions to the world’s largest Communications Service Providers (CSPs), today announced that its SaaS offering has achieved the AWS Outposts Ready designation, part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Service Ready Program. This designation recognizes that MYCOM OSI’s Assurance Cloud Service™ (ACS) is now available on AWS Outposts, which helps enable CSPs expand their digital transformation journey, delivering and assuring advanced latency-critical services at the edge whilst observing the most stringent regulatory regimes around data sovereignty, data residency and security.

Achieving the AWS Outposts Ready designation differentiates MYCOM OSI as an AWS Partner with a fully validated and certified SaaS offering on AWS Outposts. AWS Service Ready Partners have demonstrated success building products integrated with AWS services at scale and varying levels of complexity.

“Telecommunication companies are modernizing their infrastructure solutions to optimize every aspect of the customer experience and create new revenue streams with 5G-era solutions,” said Joshua Burgin, General Manager, AWS Outposts, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “We are delighted to welcome MYCOM OSI to the AWS Outposts Ready Program. MYCOM OSI’s Assurance Cloud Service™ helps CSPs to realize and monetize differentiated services by assuring customer experiences and enterprise SLAs. With AWS Outposts, MYCOM OSI is going a step further, supporting advanced 5G services by extending service assurance to the edge, enabling the delivery of low-latency services on-demand.”

“MYCOM OSI is proud to be the first service assurance provider to achieve AWS Outposts Ready designation,” said Dirk Michel, SVP SaaS Transformation. “It enables more CSPs to adopt and benefit from the ACS and accelerate their plans to efficiently leverage distributed edge and regional cloud architectures that support latency-sensitive use cases, while also aligning to local data residency and security requirements”.

The world’s first such certification achieved by a service assurance vendor, this milestone reaffirms MYCOM OSI’s status as an innovator and leader in the increasingly mission-critical category of SaaS enabled telco service assurance. It enables the Assurance Cloud Service™ (ACS) to be generally available on AWS Outposts, leveraging all the advantages of AWS for on-premise and hybrid, distributed service assurance workloads.

The certification validates MYCOM OSI’s position as the leading cloud-native assurance vendor, proving not only the feasibility of the ACS on AWS Outposts, but also the advanced 5G service enabling ideal capabilities for edge cloud deployments, including:

  • Supporting local and regional regulatory requirements and security sensitive use cases by maintaining data residency with AWS Outposts
  • Managing very large datasets at the edge to improve efficiency of compute resources and minimise data transfer
  • Managing latency-sensitive operations for equipment, processes
  • Managing complex workloads that span a variety of host and storage systems

With this achievement, the ACS is now offered as an AWS Outposts enabled service option, in addition to the existing AWS Region locations; is compliant with the most stringent data security and privacy requirements; supports latency-sensitive advanced 5G use cases; and manages very large data processing workloads with reduced data transfer rates.
