LONDON, June 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Ontology Systems, provider of service impact analysis and end-to-end dynamic network and service topology, today announced that it will be collaborating with Cisco Systems (http://www.cisco.com), Moogsoft (http://www.moogsoft.com), and SevOne (http://www.sevone.com), in the TM Forum's Big Data Driven OSS catalyst project to explore how big data analytics can be applied to OSS, and demonstrating its use in service assurance.
The Catalyst is championed by global communications service provider KDDI (http://www.kddi.com) and will demonstrate how next generation OSS tools can be used to make sense of measurement and event data from a highly dynamic virtualised network and service infrastructure, providing service assurance and service impact analysis.
Network virtualisation technologies are becoming increasingly prevalent, with recent research by SdXCentral forecasting that 80% of operator's network purchasing decisions will be influenced by them by 2020, opening the door to a vastly more dynamic infrastructure and service environment. This will have the effect of making network monitoring, measurement and service assurance into big data challenges, requiring new tools and architectures.
"We believe that Big Data will form the basis for differentiation and growth for many organizations", said JL Valente, Cisco vice president, cloud and virtualization group. "For service providers, Big Data opens up opportunities to better serve their customers, anticipate service and infrastructure issues, and meet their SLAs."
The Catalyst will show how Ontology Systems' product, Intelligent 360 for Network Operators 5, uses graph-data and semantic modelling to provide service impact analysis and an understanding of how physical and virtual resources, both in the NFVI and in service chains, depend on each other.
"The data required to construct complete models for service assurance is highly varied," commented Leo Zancani, Ontology Systems CTO. "Variety is the most neglected of the three Big Data 'V's in terms of tooling, but in complex OSS environments, it's critical to gaining a single, uniform view of all the machinery involved in service delivery. We're excited to be able to demonstrate this Big Data thinking in the context of the TM Forum Catalyst."
