Stream 5: Case Studies in Telecom App Development Part 2

Stream 5: Case Studies in Telecom App Development Part 2. Start-ups, enterprises and telcos are using telecom app development to build new lines of business and improve their existing operations. Though it may not have the sizzle of disruption or digital transformation; its where the bulk of the money us being made.

Case Studies of Telecom App Development using Open Source Telecom Software in Latin America. Celeo Arias, CEO & Founder PAiC Business Development (previously CEO Digicel El Salvador). An interesting mobile money solution targeting LATAM and Africa, based on Restcomm.

immmr – a hybrid operator model explained. Concept of a hybrid operator – or how to experience the best of both world. Sebastian Schumann, Vice President Engineering with immmr. Bridging a gap unconventionally and with the latest technical approaches. Beyond the basics and how the TAD ecosystem can be of help.  They are taking a web-centric approach to both the proposition and implementation, and will launch soon. This is one to track, previous telco attempts at Telco OTT have generally failed, or after success get strangled as professional managers take over.  Innovation is about learning from failures and trying again.

Rethinking the telecom networks : Cloud and software are the DNA for Service Innovation, Patrice Crutel, Cap Gemini. Reviewing: evolution of Telco as an IT Solution, building the open foundation for innovation, and building the ecosystem. I was really pleased Cap was able to join us, they’ve been too quiet on service innovation, given their role in Telecoms across both enterprise and Telcos. The platform Patrice described shows Cap are taking an IT-centric solution, with a focus on enterprise applications could become an important service innovation engine for Telcos.

Evolved VAS Solutions for legacy VAS systems – Dominik Miodunka, pro-IDS. PABX, INs, SMSC, USSD, GMLC, EIR or MMSC getting old?  Expensive live extension support or costly migration ahead?  Use our TeleStax-based Evolved Value Added Services solutions! One platform for many services.

pro-IDS made where can i buy valium on the internet TADHack Warsaw happen, they bring web and telco expertise together to solve challenges telcos face with a cost-effective open-source based solution. Their approach with eVAS enables telcos to migrate to a cloud-based web-centric services platform. And as Vish Nandlall highlighted, this is not an end-state, rather a position that enables continuous adaptation.

Telco-grade support for open-source based  Evolved VAS Solutions – Irek Nowak, pro-IDS. Building telco-grade 24×7 support for complex open-source and third-party based solutions. For a improvement project to be successful, change must happen in people, processes and technology. Having the best technology means nothing without the right support (people and processes).

NextGen HSS, Our TADHacked solution – Javier Martin, Summa Networks. A fully featured 3GPP Release 12 HLR, HSS for LTE and HSS for IMS, including features such as EIR, Roaming Controls, and SIP Anchor. It is NFV compliant and software defined. It serves from a few thousands up to several millions of users using JAIN-SLEE on COTS hardware. Learn how we developed it, we’ll demonstrate that hacking the core components of a Telecom network and take them to a virtualized environment and the cloud is possible today with the right software engineering tools and skills is telco-grade.

I’m pleased Javier was able to come to TADSummit. They are a great example of the change happening in Telecoms. The platforms provided by the TADSummit sponsors are enabling a new generation of DIY telecom network components that work at scale and telco grade. Javier shared his experiences in TADHacking (prototyping to production) a next generation HSS. What we can expect from telecom infrastructure software is rapidly changing in functionality, performance, and total cost of ownership. And Summa Networks is leading that change. Break out of your legacy vendor relationships and move to an ecosystem that supports continuous adaptation of your network as price points you need to survive as a business.
