    DTW24 – Ignite: Catalysing industry progress through innovation and collaboration 


    Partner content: Oracle Communications looks forward to the opportunities this event provides to advance innovation in the evolving communications landscape

    With a focus on unlocking the power of AI, this year’s DTW24-Ignite, held in Copenhagen (pictured), is bound to spark new ideas with animated exchanges, expert collaboration, and challenges to the status quo.

    One of the main tenets of this event (and one of the reasons I personally love attending), is how we’re able to innovate as an industry, continuously pushing the limit of what we’re able to achieve. In that context The Catalyst Program provides an excellent opportunity for communications service providers, IT vendors, and the extended ecosystem to collaborate; testing and validating cutting-edge proof-of-concepts.

    Diversifying connections: SATCOM and 5G anywhere

    This year, I’m proud to announce Oracle Communications will again participate in the collaborative program to put our solutions to the test. Building off our Phase I project from last year, evolving the digital experience of SATCOM products we will return with Phase II, SATCOM + 5G anywhere. Working with colleagues from Airbus, BT Group, OneWeb, Bell, and others we’ll address a unique opportunity domain that is poised to become a hotbed of innovation and disruption in the next 3-5 years.

    The convergence between 5G and satellite communication networks has incredible potential to diversify the way we connect around the world. However, we as an industry need to raise the bar on the standards we’re outlining around OSS/BSS and network management. In this catalyst, we aim to establish standards driven by higher resilience and reliability requirements.

    Conceptually, the solution builds on TM Forum’s Connectivity as a Service (CaaS) paradigm to integrate Telco and SATCOM CFSs into a single core commerce layer. From there, we’ll work to establish GSMA network service templates to better capture the needs of business customers through the marketplace. This collaborative effort will not only help elevate SATCOM standards, but also establish the resiliency needed for commercial success in the near future.

    Spotlight on CSPs: Unlocking transformation and growth

    Beyond the Catalyst Program, Oracle will also be participating in speaking sessions with our customers to offer guidance through case study analysis. Across three sessions we’ll explore Oracle implementations from leading telcos around the world covering these topics:
