Phone Numbers in the Cloud Age Monday 06 May 2013 @ 14:22

 

'Cloud' is far from a new buzz word if telecommunications, but recently it has been gaining more prominence and increasingly filtering into mainstream terminology.

Discussion about the Cloud tends to be very conceptual and high level, but what real implications does the Cloud have for communication providers, users and their phone numbers?

In a recent presentation at CommsDay Sydney Summit, this question was addressed by Rene Sugo, CEO of the MyNetFone Group (parent company of Symbio Networks) during the 'Data Centres & the Cloud' session.

MyNetFone Group Present at the CommsDay Sydney Summit Friday 01 March 2013 @ 11:25

The CommsDay Sydney Summit, held on 9-10th April 2013, is the event where Australia's telecom leaders meet.

This year Rene Sugo, CEO of Symbio Networks and the MyNetFone Group will be delivering a presentation at the 'Data Centres & the Cloud' session. 

Discussion about Cloud communications tends to be very conceptual. Rene's presentation will pull the ‘Cloud' out of the sky and bring discussion to a real usage level.

Hosted Voice - the overlooked Cloud

The focus will be on one largely overlooked aspect of Cloud, which is hosted voice. What do developments like 4G, data-centre hosted OTT services and the disassociation of numbers and services mean for the average consumer's use of the Cloud for voice communications? And what implications does this have for providers and wholesalers?

OSS/BSS in Future Service Delivery Models Wednesday 31 October 2012 @ 13:07

At the CommsDay Melbourne Congress 2012, Symbio's CEO Rene Sugo made a presentation about the role of OSS/BSS in future service delivery models.

Here is an overview of the topics and ideas covered during the presentation, and you can download the accompanying presentation slides here.

Historical Overview of OSS/BSS

OSS/BSS has been evolving as the industry moved from a basic model of reselling the 'plain old telephone service' in the 1980's to the current complex environment of service bundling, integration, managing different underlying networks and the customer's desire for 'self service' empowerment.

Our landscape is now at the stage where technology itself has facilitated a complete disembodiment of service layers and access layers, all because of  the IP protocol which lets anything travel over anything.

This ability for consumers to access almost any services 'over the top' sets a new challenge for service providers and OSS/BSS specialists. The OSS/BSS specialists themselves will need to further specialise and focus on specific OSS/BSS architectures moving forward, otherwise they risk becoming irrelevant in a customer "bring-your-own" "do-it-yourself" world.
