Technology challenges

Technology Challenges

  • Reinforcing the Layer 2/Layer 3 Infrastructure

    • IMS requires high levels of stability, availability, and consistency across network elements, such as DNS and IP topology.

    • New requirements for OA&M, redundancy, backup, signaling, bearer traffic, VPN, may require significant changes to existing network models.

  • Securing the IMS

    • The distributed nature of IMS creates new requirements for a distributed security implementation.

    • IMS must provide: Confidentiality, Communications integrity, Privacy, Availability.

  • Performance Engineering for the IMS

    • The distributed nature of IMS, along with new traffic characteristics & services, require new planning models.

    • Encompassing: Element-level view, Application-level view, End-user quality-view, Aggregate (core network) view

  • IMS Interoperability

    • Interoperability testing becomes increasingly more complex as the number of elements & vendors in the solution grows.

    • Key criteria include: Manufacturer/model/revision, Service/product definition, Usage scenarios, Required features, Existing infrastructure.

Organizational challenges

Organizational Challenges

  • Convergence isn’t just about technology

    • Changes in the technology are prompting carriers to consider organizational convergence

  • Processes & best practices need to be standardized across organizational boundaries

    • “Carrier grade” operations processes must apply to resources that may be owned & maintained by IT personnel

  • Interfaces and responsibilities must be clearly defined

  • Up-front executive commitment from all involved parties is critical, because issues will occur over the course of the project

Operational challenges

Operational - Challenges

Operational Expense associated with network migration

  • Cost savings may be a driver, but it may take a while to get there

  • Fault resolution across multiple network and access domains

    • Troubleshooting becomes more complicated

    • Demarcation points need to be clear

Migration Program Challenges & Risks

  • Major program schedule delays are caused by

    • Failure to commit to key architectural decisions

    • Changing priorities due to changes in drivers & business case

    • Insufficient Attention to Transport, Network Databases, Signaling/IN, OSS

    • Lack of Coordination among Multiple Vendors

    • Inadequate Program Management

  • Operational Issues during Transition

    • Provisioning, Billing, Maintenance

      • OS Migration Must Account for Transitional Network

      • Dual Provisioning

      • Database Synchronization

    • Customer Care, Fault Resolution, Troubleshooting

  • Impacts

    • Customer Dissatisfaction, Increased Operational Costs, Delayed Revenue

Best practices

Best Practices

  • The importance of the Solution Architect

    • Maintains purity of IMS technical vision

    • Provides technical leadership across multiple functional and organizational teams

  • Strong Program Management is essential

    • Set firm dates for milestones and push hard to stay on schedule

  • Maintain the appropriate lab facilities

    • Minimum of two labs - one for current environment, one for next release

  • Formalize interactions across vendors, internal orgs, and partners

    • Develop detailed interface specifications with all interested parties at the table with written commitments for specific responsibilities

    • Formalized IMS program joint-ownership sessions

  • Institute a “Solution Management” function

    • Multivendor IMS is a reality, carriers need a way to ensure integrity of the solution over time

Mary

Ann, his administrative assistant, covers his calls after two rings.

Bill, a claims rep. is at the site of a serious bus accident.

  • Mary, the president of the bus company, calls Bill’s number. The call rings on both Ann’s and Bill’s phones (presence enabled simultaneous ring).

A Service Scenario: Insurance claims investigation

Mobile Office extension & call pick-up

  • Ann picks up the call for Bill after two rings

  • Ann notes on her ActivePhonebook display that Bill’s availability status is ok to accept only urgent calls via push-to-talk. She considers this urgent as she also knows his location from the iLocator display.

  • Ann contacts Bill using click/push-to-talk service (VoIP to Wireless). Bill gives his approval & Ann uses “click-to” transfer the call to Bill.

Mary

A Service Scenario: Insurance claims investigation(Continued)

Bill is talking to Mary on his 3G

phone device about the accident.

Mary wants to understand quickly if her company is at fault.

  • Bill initiates a Push-to-Show session with Mary showing the likely cause of the accident is a faulty bolt that caused the wheel to fall off.

  • He then instant messages Ann for any records on recent claims related to faulty bolts. Ann file transfers the record abstracts.

  • Mary looks up the bus’s maintenance record. It might be a manufacturing defect on the bus. She file transfers a copy to Bill’s phone.
