To keep pace with changing technologies and the rise of mobile 5G, underlying communication networks need modernization. TDM-based networks must transform into packet-based networks to meet the demands of pervasive data-centric applications and services. Packet-based networks not only enable new innovations, services, and business opportunities, they are also the most cost-effective, efficient, and scalable networks for content delivery.
In today’s world of connectivity and real-time data, bridging the gap between IT and OT systems creates new opportunities to improve operational efficiency, meet customer demands, and keep pace with digital transformation. With enterprise applications (IT) and operations running the grid (OT) working together, utilities can benefit from disaster recovery and business continuity efforts. The integration of these systems enables an organization to optimize data consistency and management, which increases productivity and other efficiencies including network planning and engineering, service assurance, and service fulfillment.
To future-proof your tower sites, the proper management of all passive mobile infrastructure assets is critical. Ulrich Schälling, Head of Business Line Networks at FNT Software, recently discussed towerco management in the age of digital transformation in Pipeline Magazine.

To keep pace with competitors, IoT and the rise of edge computing – network transformation is mission critical. However, as modern networks are highly complex, this transformation has the potential to be a time-consuming and costly process. From FTTA and C-RAN architecture upgrades, to laying fiber and connecting BBU pool resources to the core network, there are countless steps that must be taken to ensure data is properly transported over mobile networks to geographically dispersed users.

Electric utilities have all required resources at hand to support smart city scenarios. The underlying communications networks must be renewed anyway – why not using the investment for additional revenue? Ulrich Schälling, Head of Business Line Networks at FNT Software, sheds a light on new opportunities for utilities and how to overcome current challenges.

Today’s digital transformation is far reaching and changes how cities embrace technology to deliver an array of services as well as make existing operations more efficient. To align with and adapt to “digitization”, many cities have implemented an array of solutions and systems but are struggling to maintain control because they lack a common management platform.

Telecommunication providers need to learn how services can be developed more flexible and agile than ever before in order to seize the opportunity of digitization. The technological foundation for this change is formed by Virtualization: Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN). But the real challenge is yet to come.
