Increasing complexity and costs
There is a risk that OPEX and CAPEX will grow
exponentially with deployment of multiple
services and introduction of multiple service
providers!
  • Introducing multiple services often results in an
    exponential increase of complexity, and thus
    exponential increase in costs
  • Introducing multiple service providers makes
    complexity even greater
  • Traditional telecom systems werent built to
    carry different types of services with different
    kinds of requirements on
  • Priority
  • Shaping
  • QoS
  • Security
  • Bandwidth

Reduce this gap!

Automation is key to cost efficiency OPEX
reduction
  • PacketFronts broadband solution offers
  • Automated element control
  • Automated provisioning of service profile changes
  • Automated upgrades of network elements SW and
    configuration data
  • Automated service control
  • Cost efficient service registration,
    automatically provisioned to network elements
  • Flexible QoS management
  • Advanced filtering for secure TV distribution
  • Automated subscriber control
  • Automated end user authentication upon client
    booting
  • Automated end user authorisation upon service
    activation
  • Effective user tracking through centralized IP
    management

7
Service innovation and ARPU
  • How increase the amount each end user spends on
    broadband services?
  • .without losing control of operational costs.

Increase the possibility for end users to buy
more services, i.e. increase ARPU
8
Open access per service
  • Open access (multiple service providers that
    distribute their services over a shared
    infrastructure) - stimulates service development
    and innovation thus improves service
    take-rate and ARPU
  • Shares the risks and revenues of broadband
    deployment
  • Allows introduction of 3rd party service
    providers for full triple-play service offering
  • Encourages service development and service
    innovation
  • Enables service differentiation service
    packaging
  • Gives end-user advantages in terms of increased
    flexibility in choice of service provider and
    avoids lock-in-effects
  • Has positive effects on local development

IPTV
Each service is treated individually in terms of
bandwidth, QoS, security, priority etc. in
PacketFronts broadband solution.

IPTV challenges
IPTV distribution in broadband networks is
important as revenue carrier and for its
marketing value, but puts significant technical
requirements on the network
  • Reserve access only to those subscribing to a
    specific TV channel
  • Protect TV content from malicious users
  • Quality of service
  • Bandwidth limitations on the access line
  • Possibility for local TV providers to distribute
    local content

10
Proven IPTV solution
  • PacketFronts solution addresses
  • Restricted multicast access
  • Protection of TV channels from malicious users
  • Flexible adjustment of bandwidth bandwidth set
    per service, not per access line
  • Service unbundling, allows channel unbundling
  • Multicast to conserve bandwidth
  • Self provisioning of TV channels through BECS and
    SSP

Bandwidth is isolated per service, not per access
line. Total unbundling of TV services results in
greater flexibility in service differentiation
11
Out-of-data-path control not a bottleneck
  • Capacity challenges
  • A solution where the service engine lies in the
    data path can never scale
  • Limitations in capacity
  • Limitations in service differentiation and
    manageability
  • Centralised or decentralised BRAS does not make
  • the difference

  • PacketFront solution
  • Getting out of the data path facilitates a
    scalable and future proof solution for multiple
    services
  • Separation of signalling and data traffic avoids
    capacity
  • limitations
  • More advanced options for service differentiation

Reduced CAPEX and OPEX
  • Costs challenges
  • Obsolete installed base. Multi-layer
    architectures with SDH/POS/ATM/IP.
  • Different access technologies with different
    systems for control and provisioning
  • Large amount of integration work needed for
    interaction between different processes
  • Heavy work for provisioning a number of services
    and configurations
  • PacketFront solution
  • All-IP solution reduces investment and support
    cost
  • One single solution for control and provisioning
    of services, independent of access technology
  • Triple-play enabled from start, eliminates need
    to re-invest for full service portfolio
  • Non blocking architecture future proof
  • Integrated system reduces the need for
    integration work
  • Ownership of network infrastructure is separated
    from ownership of service provider systems.
    Shared approach to finance broadband deployment
  • Services self-provisioning by end-users

Network elements
  • Values of BECS
  • Automates provisioning of software and
    configuration profile to all network elements
    (ASRs) in the network
  • Reduces complexity with service registration.
    Services are registered only once in BECS, not
    per network element (as in many other systems)
  • Handles the complexity of IP address pools coming
    from multiple service providers a prerequisite
    for an open-access environment
  • Enables advanced service differentiation as each
    service is treated individually in terms of
    bandwidth, priority, security, QoS etc
  • Placed out-of-data-path, avoiding bottlenecks in
    network traffic

18
Automation and control SMT
Service provider/ Network owner
  • SMT - Subscriber Management Tool
  • Maintains database of which service each end
    users subscribes to, and to which client the
    service is sent
  • Enables traceability and monitoring through
    logging records from end users IP and MAC
    addresses
  • Provides the interface required to self
    provisioning tools, e.g. Service Selection Portal
    (SSP)
  • Managed by service provider or network owner
