Samsung announced key partnerships with IBM and Guavus to provide comprehensive Operational Support Systems (OSS) offerings to mobile network operators.
Samsung’s newly launched portfolio of operational support systems, CognitiV OSS will help mobile service providers to manage and optimize their networks in a proactive and intelligent way.
CognitiV OSS analyzes users’ service quality of experience in real-time, which provides automated network optimization and root-cause analysis of service quality degradation.
Through the strategic alliance, Samsung and IBM will collaborate on overall OSS technology and develop new business opportunities.
“The partnership between Samsung and IBM brings together cutting-edge LTE network technology and LTE service assurance,” said Andrew Brown, Director of Worldwide Sales, IBM Systems Middleware.
Samsung is also working closely with Guavus on developing analytics technologies to bolster its innovative OSS offering. As networks grow increasingly dense and sophisticated, the importance of big data analytics is becoming more and more apparent.
Samsung will work with Guavus’ analytics expertise to develop real-time analysis capabilities that are optimized for radio networks.
“Through partnership with us, Samsung is now able to uniquely provide a Service Assurance analytics solution that correlates and fuses streaming network data with operational data,” said Anukool Lakhina, CEO and founder of Guavus.
