Deutsche Telekom assures Corporate IP Broadband with MYCOM OSI

Deploys MYCOM OSI ProAssure™ digital services quality management

Mobile World Congress, Barcelona – 28th February 2017 – MYCOM OSI, the leading independent provider of Assurance, Automation and Analytics solutions to the world’s largest Communications Service Providers (CSPs), today announced that Deutsche Telekom has deployed MYCOM OSI’s digital Service Quality Management (SQM) solution to assure its next generation corporate broadband service.

Deutsche Telekom is one of the largest CSPs in Germany with 40 million mobile and 20 million fixed subscribers, in addition to providing fixed broadband to more than 12 million corporate business customers. It differentiates on network quality as a strategic objective and has received multiple awards for being the best network across mobile and fixed domains.

Deutsche Telekom offers a corporate EVPL (Ethernet Virtual Private Line) service to enterprise customers, using its state-of-the-art next generation All-IP broadband network. As such, it required the highest Quality of Service in the market to differentiate its offering and be recognised as the most competitive provider. To achieve this, Deutsche Telecom needed a solution that could assure the overall and individual services of corporate customers and enable it to achieve SLA (Service Level Agreement) targets, proactively manage customer impacts and support rapid issue resolution.

In addition, Deutsche Telekom required the ability to prioritize incident management based on customer service plans and differentiated quality-of-service profiles, have near real-time EVPL service status visibility across its network and provide first level issue isolation and probable cause detection.

Deutsche Telekom had previously investigated leading SQM systems in the market but these had failed to scale to the volumes required and struggled with the complexity of integrating in to Deutsche Telekom’s All-IP network architecture and operational support systems.

MYCOM OSI’s ProAssure™ digital Service Quality Management solution was selected based on its capabilities, as well as the successful deployment of MYCOM OSI PrOptima™ network performance management software for Deutsche Telekom’s BNG (Broadband Network Gateway) network. Since ProAssure was still in pre- launch at the time of selection, MYCOM OSI was able to successfully collaborate with Deutsche Telekom in agile development mode to adapt and add features specific to its requirements.

The MYCOM OSI ProAssure™ solution provides Deutsche Telekom with:

  • A single end-to-end, near real-time view of EVPL service status by enterprise customer with visualization, correlation and analysis through network, service and customer layers and across multiple equipment vendors, technologies and domains
  • Dynamic service modelling with automated discovery, monitoring, alerting and analysis for physical, logical and virtual infrastructure components
  • Proactive surveillance with automated bottom-up service impact and top-down root cause analyses in real-time across customers, regions, technologies and services

“MYCOM OSI provides a dynamic, scalable and reliable solution that we can depend on to offer competitive IP broadband service SLAs to corporate customers,” said Patrick Suberg, VP Network Assurance & M2M Platform, Deutsche Telekom, “ProAssure enables us to maintain high customer satisfaction with our corporate services and also to effectively manage SLA expectations – in short, it helps us meet our business objectives.”

MYCOM OSI ProAssure™ is engineered to support future digital business network requirements and comprises technical capabilities that include: real-time event and streaming support; dynamic and elastic scaling and full cloud-enabled deployment; native support of Hadoop and big data analytics; support of next generation APIs for automated data import, and support for predictive analytics and machine learning.

“We are delighted to be deployed by Deutsche Telekom for this project since they are a global authority among CSPs for operational management and had thoroughly reviewed the market for leading solutions,” commented MYCOM OSI VP Solutions, Dirk Michel. “MYCOM OSI’s ProAssure digital SQM enables Deutsche Telekom to deliver market-leading customer experience for corporate enterprises whilst providing a future-proofed platform to add new services and technologies.”
