Project about? Background for the Project
Current practice for the automation of Telco Service and Network Management (S&NM) has focussed on the use of telecom and IT platform technologies. In the last year there has been a dramatic increase in interest in e-commerce and a rapid rise in the number of practical products from multiple vendors aimed at supply chain integration.
Several Telcos have experimented with web based front ends (B2C) to deliver services to their customers. However there is a realisation that the new Telco business models require more complex supply chains (B2B) and that the benefits of e-commerce cannot be realised without major changes to the technology operation of S&NM systems themselves. These changes are needed for organisational technology and business reasons - such as achieving required QoS of service provision. This probably needs the adoption and use of e-commerce for internal systems interfaces within a Telco, and amongst its businesses. In turn, this implies the need for intelligent automation and assistance.
What is needed is:
Definitions of terms:
E-commerce for Telco operators is going to be a critical technology for service delivery (in particular for new telecommunication services). Its intrinsic requirements like security and reliability cannot be fully satisfied by the current state of the art for service and network management. This project will define and assess the best framework to allow Telco operators to be able to manage these new challenges in the e-business context, by capitalizing Operator's experiences in traditional network and service management.
Moreover European Operators will be able to find their own way to approach these challenges in the European context (e.g. trying to improve and revise TMF NGOSS that is mainly US oriented). This will be made effective by means of early releases of related deliverables during the project.
The potential benefits to Shareholders are:
The project focuses on the impacts of e-business on network and service management, individuating the big changes in B2B relations (interconnection/wholesale market), core processes, organizational issues and OSS architecture.
Modeling internet-based B2B solutions from the telco perspective should help to identify challenges and opportunities for Telcos, delivering the three main areas of business impact (supply-chain management, organizational efficiency, customer relationship management) and keeping up to date with trends in net markets.
The project will then cover the following different kinds of activities:

What relationship exists to other organisations or bodies?The project is developing relationship with several other EURESCOM projects in the area of e-commerce, m-commerce and open service architectures. Furthermore it is developing a relationship to the Telemanagement Forum and several vendors.
