Business Assurance For 5G Networks

Assure your 5G network with powerful risk management insights, backed with advanced analytics and high degree of automation.

Risk Management Analytics for 5G

Connected devices and mobile applications require wireless network access that is resilient, secure and able to protect individuals privacy, and the 5G systems is designed with these requirements in mind.

To successfully monetize their connectivity capabilities, Communication Service Providers (CSPs) must match their offerings to the requirements of enterprises and vertical industry players. Beyond simple connectivity, they need to harmonize higher layer capabilities, such as network resource orchestration, analytics capabilities, and business and operations automation.
 
Mobileum provides business assurance analytics for CSPs to improve their P&L, and develop a strong customer value proposition while deploying 5G technology.

Audit partner' slice allocation for real-time charging accuracy

The provisioning of the new services will promote new 5G business models and industry innovations, thereby building a win-win 5G ecosystem. Nevertheless, dynamic provisioning of 5G network slices is a major challenge for the network infrastructure and realtime charging accuracy. Efficient and secure slice provisioning auditing algorithms are important, since network slices share the limited resources of the physical network, as well as they need to be directly linked with the flexible charging models.

Mobileum provides a framework for dynamic slice assurance through the application of auditing controls along Network Slice Instance lifecyle management.

Audit real-time charging in B2B and in other B2B2X levels and combinations

Audit the engagement in B2B2X models with cloud-native, flexible systems that are 5G and IoT ready. Network as Service (NSaaS) is interesting to many CSPs and their potential clients, as it allows the fast creation of on-demand network slices to support a specific application, service, organization, and set of users or networks.

Audit how all parties are paid what they deserve while also accounting for adjustments, refunds, credits and other post-facto events across all parties.

Get all the business assurance analytical insights from one single platform

Mobileum's Active Intelligence is a Big Data Platform that combines several software tools to analyze the growing volume, velocity, and variety of data on Communication Service Providers (CSPs). Active Intelligence is a single one-stop solution for all Big Data needs of a CSP independent of the size and data volume. 

With Mobileum's Active Intelligence all the necessary tools are integrated into one single platform for risk management.
As an end-to-end solution it covers everything from data collection to risk analysis and reporting. With the flexibility to define controls, our software also provides prebuilt modules for risk management areas such as Revenue assurance, Fraud management, Digital Transformation Assurance and more.

Where All of Your Risk Management Strategy Comes Together

Provisioning Assurance
Audit the 5G value chain to assure the placement of network functions at distributed datacenter locations
Security and Fraud
Build a trustworthy 5G infrastructure by taking a holistic view and not only focusing on individual parts in isolation.
Contract Assurance
Audit 5G slice usage to ensure that MVNO partners pay only for what they use. Audit IoT MVNOS partners’ billing for usage-based business models and not only about connectivity.
Real-Time Anomaly Detection
Detect fraud with supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms engineered for the most challenging mobile environments.
SLA Monitoring
Monitor quality of service according to contract agreements between service providers and wholesale partners for accurate billing settlement.
Margin Analytics
Monitor revenues based on the resources and network topology in use for each specific service and traffic that will use the slice.

Streaming analytics for IoT Rating and Billing Validation

Representing a giant technical leap in network capabilities, 5G will help CSPs to develop new business models in co-operation with industry verticals as diverse as automated vehicles, industrial automation, assisted living, and transportation systems. Since network slices will span across RAN, transport and core networks, and utilize virtual, containerized and physical network functions, collecting chargeable network slicing events can be a challenge for many CSPs to keep their 5G monetization strategy in control. These new capabilities need to be closely monitored and audited when it comes to 5G and IoT use cases by covering IoT device management, support for non-telco service charging, and multi-party charging as well as IoT and/or edge-platform monetization.

5G Risk Consulting Services

All telcos can benefit from a proactive risk management strategy when rolling out a 5G infrastructure. This means defining key risks, weighing their probability and impact on business drivers, and developing your thinking on actions to take. Mobileum can support you in this. Our consultancy experts can undertake risk assessments that go beyond financial and regulatory risk to consider the wider environment in which you deploy 5G services. Additionally, our consultancy experts can help you put in place effective monitoring and control tools that give you earlier warnings, and enable you to respond quickly and effectively

REVENUE ASSURANCE IN THE 5G ERA

The goal of this paper is to analyze the impact 5G networks will have on how CSPs look for revenue assurance as part of their risk management strategy.

Monitor infrastructure asset allocation for cost and margin analytics 

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) allows network operators to reduce their dependence on single-purpose hardware appliances by taking the functions that were previously built into these expensive pieces of equipment and putting them into software that runs on industry-standard servers, network, and storage platforms.

This provides a unique opportunity for real-time analysis of information from networks, systems, and applications, helping to achieve a more detailed analysis of costs and margins. The ingestion of additional, non-network related information – such as application resource usage, virtual machine resource consumption, and other metrics - can result in a more robust and coherent cost and margin analytics process that makes decisions based not only on network traffic but also by taking into account the whole environment.

Track performance metrics for charging accuracy on SLA contractual agreements

Policy and Charging Control plays a very critical role in the 5G ecosystem. It provides transparency and control over the consumption of Network resources during realtime service delivery.

Each trigger condition (i.e. chargeable event) defined for the 5G data connectivity converged charging functionality, needs to be linked with the associated behaviour when they are met. Real-time processing, tagging, aggregation, and temporal correlation are part of the RAID Usage Control monitoring capabilities in order to audit immediate and deferred chargeable events for 5G offline, converged online and offline charging.
