How to deliver a comprehensive big data analytics framework to communication service providers by William McKnight:
The communications service provider (CSP) industry has undergone a dramatic shift in recent years. The traditional model of competing on subscription plans is no longer an adequate business strategy. Since most internal systems were built with this model in mind, these environments, with non-enriched, non-integrated, and latent data, fit for after-the-fact reporting, are struggling to keep up with the changes.
This research report will explain how CSPs establish a framework for their analytics as well as review the business drivers for telcos and the key benefits that big data analytics provide. It will also address the impact of the business drivers and the advantages of streaming analytics, combined with the ability to harness big data to meet several CSP competitive requirements. It will conclude by summarizing this comprehensive big data analytics framework for CSPs.

Arieso gets big bandwidth out of the smallest cell

Arieso is working with a major U.S. carrier to plan for the advent of small cells. The company won’t name the operator, saying only it was a Tier I player, but that carrier is using its tools to help build the heterogenous networks of the future.

It’s alive! AT&T’s networks become self-aware

AT&T is using Intucell’s self-optimizing network technology to turn its mobile broadband networks from what are now static collections of cells into the networking equivalent of organisms. The days of cells meekly passing subscribers back and forth to one another are over.

NSN’s new network fabric has it all: LTE, Wi-Fi, and cloud

At MWC, Nokia Siemens Networks plans its most ambitious mobile network design yet: a system of 100 small cells that behaves like a single cell site. This has huge implications for the heterogeneous networks of the future, which aim to create a sea of cheap bandwidth.

LTE-Advanced: Think of it as broadband for cars

The ITU has approved the LTE-Advanced standard, and the web understandably got excited, proclaiming the arrival of ‘5G’. We’re also pretty amped up about LTE-Advanced and the huge gains in speeds, capacity and network efficiency it will deliver, but we also think the party is a bit premature.

Soon cell towers will start following you

Intucell is working with an unnamed North American operator to build a new kind of self-aware cellular network. Its self-optimizing network technology will transform today’s static cellular grid into a network of constantly expanding and shrinking cells that follow customers through the network.
