TADSummit Revisited, Werner Eriksen, Telenor, Building a Programmable Telco Core Network.

werner eriksenOn Wednesday Feb 24th at 0915 EST, 1515 Europe: we ran a TADSummit Revisited with Werner Eriksen, VP Communication Services, Telenor Digital on Building a Programmable Telco Core Network. You can view the Q&A session at the end of this weblog, or just click here. Here are the previous TADSummit Revisited sessions.

Werner Eriksen, VP Communication Services, Telenor Digital presented on Building a Programmable Telco Core Network. Introducing the flexibility developers want, and opening up the required APIs in a running multi billion dollar operation is not trivial. Telenor Digital has therefore built a full stack MVNO setup which from the ground up provides programmability that enables us to build products and services with internal and (soon) external developers.

Questions Received so far:

  1. Your idea of creating a parallel (MVNO) network for experimentation is great. What internal issues and barriers did you face in creating an experimental telco?
  2. What type of software developers did you recruit? Telco buying klonopin online legal services are not see as cool or interesting by most developers.
  3. Do you have a copy of Telenor’s HLR/HSS, or do you have a separate HLR/HSS so the services are only addressable to your MVNO SIMs?
  4. Do you have user experience and product people? If so where did you hire them from?
  5. What are for you the top 3 open source frameworks in your experimental network?
  6. How do you get real users involved? What internal barriers did you face?
  7. How do you charge for the services?
  8. How do you make decisions on which services to test? What is the average time from decision to test to real customers play with the service?
  9. How do you make decisions on when to stop experimenting and cancel or launch a service?
  10. What is the relative cost of development of Telenor traditional versus experimental service development?
  11. What new services are you working on?
