And then it became the SDN and NFV World Congress, and this year, next month, it will be just a Layer123 World Congress. It was launched...

Programmable FTTx

To unlock the full potential of gigabit broadband, service providers need to build a scalable network which can launch new services on the fly. This can be achieved by building virtual networks wherein network resources can be re-configured on demand basis. Traditionally, this has required significant investment, and hence creating a massive roadblock for service providers. But today, with the maturity of cloud technologies, availability of open-source codes and abstraction of hardware from the software layer ensures this transition with minimal additional cost. At STL, we offer pFTTx which can virtualize last-mile network to enable flexible gigabit broadband. pFTTx is...

CEM/OSS for Hybrid Networks Predictive Analytics & Dynamic offer creation

How to use personalization and real-time data analytics to improve customer centricity and inspire loyalty. This Catalyst has developed an innovative analytics application to optimize and personalize offers for customers. The idea is for communications service providers (CSPs) to be able to offer custom packages to their subscribers based on real-time, predictive analysis of individual service users. With this high level of personalization, CSPs can improve customers’ perceptions about the company. The project shows how real-time usage data from hybrid networks, made up of physical and virtual components, can be combined to make this possible. The collected data is analyzed...

5G Intelligent Service Operations

This Catalyst, which is a continuation of last year’s 5G service operations project, is one of two related projects looking at the lifecycle of a 5G-enabled services. This team is focusing on service operations while the other is focusing on planning and optimization.  This catalyst demonstrates how these services can be operationalized, orchestrated and monetized by an advanced ecosystem that includes end-to-end slice management, dynamic Service Orchestration, reactive and proactive assurance and dedicated policy management. By providing closed-loop automation, the ecosystem ensures that dynamically changing demand and unforeseen circumstances don’t impact the quality of service provided. Focusing on slice management,...

App trading marketplace: a framework for CSP collaboration

This Catalyst project will explore an opportunity called marketplace where telcos can come together and find synergies by sharing success stories with other telcos via an online marketplace, similar to the Android Play store or the Apple App store. The marketplace is the first of its kind for telcos and will allow CSPs to share the service they have created profitably in non-competitive geographies so that another telco can replicate the success story in another part of the world in an instant to extend the same service to its subscribers. The marketplace is realized with a standard framework across telcos...


Cloud technology, Software-defined Networking (SDN), and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) promises to radically change the economics and velocity of network services by deploying virtual network functions on standard, low cost, clouds and commodity off-the-shelf (COTS) servers and switches. The benefits can only be realized, however, if network functions can be seamlessly deployed and managed on distributed cloud-based infrastructure that consists of many thousands of cooperating virtual machines. Today’s data center architecture was built for Web and cloud native applications that are primarily stateless and feature application-level resiliency. Network functions such as subscriber access/management and networking policy databases are fundamentally different....
