Intraway, BISDN Create Solution to Reduce MSO Complexity

Intraway, a provider of operations support systems (OSS) automated provisioning solutions, announced a technology and systems integration partnership with BISDN, a software development and network engineering firm. As a part of the agreement, Intraway and BISDN have produced a solution that leverages Symphonica’s no-code platform and network connectors, and BISDN’s NETCONF-driven controller solution to manage a topology with switches and micro plug ONT/OLT components through a single interface.

The Intraway/BISDN solution speeds time to market and reduces operational costs and complexity while providing a higher level of service quality and reliability. In addition, the Intraway/BISDN solution offers scalability and flexibility, allowing service providers to expand their networks as demand grows – across PON and other SDN/NFV solutions.

The collaboration was driven by the needs of the partners’ mutual communications service provider (CSP) customers to orchestrate their network controllers and devices through a NETCONF interface and a high-density PON architecture.

The partnership is a step in Intraway’s journey to provide comprehensive orchestration solutions for the telecommunications industry and drive the goal of the Intraway Partner Ecosystem Program to address ongoing needs to simplify the BSS/OSS environments of CSPs.

“This new set of interfaces and connectors will enable the Intraway Symphonica platform to leverage numerous new networking technologies to provide our network operator customers with a state-of-the-art provisioning, workflow and orchestration platform,” said Mark Abolafia (pictured), SVP, Global Channel Partners at Intraway. “Through this collaboration, Intraway and BISDN empower digital service providers with an agile solution that streamlines service activation and fulfillment to meet the needs of our customers as they continue to digitally transform their operations.”

Symphonica’s configurable, no-code provisioning, workflow and orchestration platform automates lifecycle service management for network operators. The partnership’s set of interfaces and connectors will enable the Symphonica platform to leverage numerous networking technologies, helping network operator customers orchestrate their network controllers and devices through BISDN’s NETCONF interface.

“By investing jointly in these efforts, BISDN will expand our reach and solution portfolio to many more digital service providers,” said Dr. Hagen Woesner, BISDN Managing Director. “These providers will benefit from leveraging our NETCONF-driven interface to build and manage more highly integrated and efficient networking systems. This solution enables operators to introduce new services more quickly, ultimately facilitating and improving effective business operations while saving costs.”
