Atrinet's NetACE TONAS Helps Service Providers Cope with Evolving Telecom Market

By Greg Tavarez April 18, 2023

The high demand for fast internet and the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) give reason for communication service providers to invest more in 5G infrastructure to meet customer demands, rapidly changing the telecom market.

5G technologies, with faster data speeds and lower latency, are well-suited for supporting emerging technologies such as autonomous vehicles, smart cities and advanced healthcare applications. And CSPs hope, in turn, to support those technologies to gain a competitive edge in the telecom market.

In fact, the global telecom services market size, valued at $1,805.61 billion in 2022, is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 6.2% from 2023 to 2030, according to Grand View Research. One key factor: A rise in spending on the deployment of 5G infrastructures.

However, there are challenges within the rapidly evolving market, especially with the shift toward 5G: high costs, complex network architecture and the need for additional infrastructure are a few that stick out.

To help CSPs cope with the change, Atrinet unveiled its latest offering, the NetACE TONAS line of cloud-native, modular Operations Support System, or OSS, products.

Atrinet provides network management solutions and services to help service providers and enterprises optimize their network operations, reduce costs and improve service delivery through automation and orchestration.

Its new offering, NetACE TONAS, is built on a containerized cloud-native architecture, open-source software, TM Forum (News - Alert) Open APIs and streamlined continuous integration and continuous delivery. This makes it scalable, flexible and lightweight, allowing it to be rapidly customized, integrated, and put into operation.

Below are some of the capabilities and features of NetACE TONAS:

NetACE TONAS inventory data integrity assurance, comprised of federated network auto-discovery and real-time inventory reconciliation modules, ensures the accuracy and completeness of network inventory data and supports the automated and manual resolutions of data inconsistencies. The DIA is integrated with one or more third-party network resource inventories, which fully automates the network discovery, synchronization and discrepancy resolution tasks.

NetACE TONAS unified service activation and fulfillment offers telecom operators an unparalleled solution for streamlining service activation and fulfillment over the same cloud-native platform. The results of this are faster delivery times and an improved customer experience.

NetACE TONAS AI/ML-powered network insights and assurances provides actionable insights into network performance and service quality. With this capability, telecom operators identify and resolve issues quickly and proactively.

NetACE TONAS network configuration management automates various network configuration processes, including network configuration, device upgrades, compliance monitoring and change management.

NetACE TONAS Adapters and Integrations Marketplace offers a vast array of implementation details for NetACE TONAS modules and out-of-the-box connectivity options to network equipment and technology providers.

These capabilities make NetACE TONAS stand out due to its modular design, collaboration with customers and Atrinet teams, full automation and seamless integration. The solution offers versatile, low-code modules for various fixed and mobile networks, including 5G and legacy systems.

As a result, NetACE TONAS is revolutionizing telecom by reducing total cost of ownership, accelerating time-to-market for new products and services and enhancing operational efficiency.
