Project Description

Telco Digital Transformation for the future – 5G O-RAN and Fronthual with 5G Core Project 

Telecommunications providers today are in the midst of the second wave of digitalization; highly reliable connectivity is the basis for digital living and working, so it is a crucial factor for the future competitiveness of national economies. It is only logical that industrial policy and regulation are exercising an ever greater influence on the telecommunications ecosystem. Commerce driven by the internet and data is governed by increasingly strict regulations while security, public control, and questions of ethics are gaining in importance. We show how these developments will generate opportunities for telecommunications providers and identify specific focal points for action.

how the second wave of digitalization is generating fresh ideas!

What can you do in this situation to ensure that your company is actively preparing for the future? Our experts, backed by their more than 40 years of experience in telecommunications consulting, will counsel you individually.

Future Telco: Our Solutions for Your Future

We have been analyzing market developments, technologies, and added-value chains under the broad classification since 2008. We combine the latest findings in the consultancy sector with the farsightedness of selected industry experts and create solutions that make your company fit

SC4T defined several groups of “levers” that, when applied at the right points, will secure a successful start into the next decade for telecommunications providers.

The separation of hardware and software in the IP Core  network, enables more flexible and vendor-independent design of the network

Migrate from integrated vendor specific black boxes with proprietary interfaces to standard white boxes with open interfaces and separation of data and control plane. Disaggregation allows operators to mix and match equipment to enable faster time-to-market and flexible customized networks. Disaggregation is applicable in the mobile radio network (vRAN or O-RAN) but also in the fixed network (SEBA [SDN-enabled Broadband access]). Access 4.0 provides a concrete example of Fixed Access Disaggregation and works with vEPC for 5G Next Generation Networks. 

Here the Practice SC4T developed to address this for a Telco Customer:

The case was for several Telcos in different geographical areas in Europe and Middle East, where SC4T was called to answers by a several Migration Projects for Telco Cloud SDDC ) to support solutions in virtualized applications for Core Networks with vEPC structure using more than 10000 network devices, two or thrre Telco Hybrid Cloud in several Data Centers, over 5000 cabinets, Cyber Security structure and over 2500 physical Servers, running VMware and OpenStack with over 50000 Virtual Machine Applications using Kubernets, Docker, and several Vendors like Cisco.

SC4T works on several Telcos for the construction of area-wide fibre infrastructures and 5G networks. The associated infrastructure expansion is not economically viable for a single carrier and is also ecologically questionable, which is why more and more partnerships, network sharing and heterogeneous networks will emerge in the future. 

SC4T is able to explain technologies for access networks, efficient and demand-oriented planning, different possibilities of infrastructure sharing and the advancing disaggregation.

The network infrastructure forms the core asset of every carrier. New technologies and changing market requirements open up new ways to provide the best possible coverage, capacity and quality at the lowest possible cost. SC4T are able to describe ways to achieve efficient, convergent & QoS-based expansion of mobile and fixed network infrastructures.

SC4T Topics:

  • Edge Computing: Need for action to secure and develop the telco positioning in the edge business
  • The transformation of telcos towards a software-based architecture (SDN, NFV, SBA) and cloudification
  • Network slicing and the impact on telcos

SC4T technical proposal for Telco Cloud Platform is based on Cisco ACI with Vmware NSX integration and 5G Service Application catalog.  This features a flexible and modular architecture, which can be integrated rapidly with leading cloud technologies in the market 

This platform is both a cloud broker and orchestration service, offering third-party cloud services through an online “storefront” and a centralized IT service catalog.

The Macro-functionalities of the 5G Service Telco Cloud Platform are:

  • Aggregation – Comprehensive catalog of services are offered through a centralized, online storefront;
  • Integration – Cloud provider and value-added services are pre-integrated and available via self-service to users;
  • Automation – Services are automated and orchestrated for on-demand request and fulfillment;
  • Management – Services are monitored and managed with online dashboards and metered and charge-backed centrally.
