NextGen Wired 102: Operations, Architecture & Billing

foundation for successThe second day provides an overview of NextGen Wired lines of business, billing and architectures. First students will become familiar with the security, authentication and authorization for NextGen Wired services, as well as the technical, operational and financial model details for the WiFi and FTTH. The second portion of this day is dedicated a detailed review of Fiber, HFC, Docsis, DSL and IMS technology sets. Students will also learn different billing architectures for telecoms, their controls and applications.

Part 1: NextGen Wired: Lines of Business

The first part of NGF102 is focused on introducing students to the security, fraud protection, authentication and authorization for NextGen Wired services. Students will then learn the operational, technical, financial and business model details for the WiFi and FTTH lines of business.

Practical Applications

foundation for success
  • Become familiar with the industry standard methods used to secure and authenticate wired access and how they can be applied to their environments
  • Review the primary methods to authorize access for customers (the Navigation, Walled Garden, Firewall, inStream, DPI, BGP Community, AAA Server and IMS/HSS methods) and understand how and when they are best applied to their environments
  • WiFi Briefing: Students will be provided with an exhaustive review of the standards, current market characteristics, common applications, future forecast, architecture, customer equipment, network infrastructure, topology and billing approaches utilized to assure the WIFI business and compare this to the other technologies
  • FTTH Briefing: Students will be provided with an exhaustive review of the standards, current market characteristics, common applications, future forecast, architecture, customer equipment, network infrastructure, topology and billing approaches utilized to assure the FTTH business and compare this to the other technologies

Key Concepts

  • Industry standards-based authentication methods for Next Gen Wired - How they work, where they are to be applied
  • Industry standards-based authorization methods for NextGen Wired - How they work, where they are applied
  • WiFi – In Depth Briefing
  • FTTH – In Depth Breifing

foundation for successPart 2: NextGen Wired: Architectures & Billing

The second half of this day will conclude our assessment of the Next Gen Wired technologies. We will complete an in-depth review of the evolution and integration of the Docsis 3.0, FTTH, Wifi, ADSL, FastEther, MPLS, Broadcast and IMS technology sets. After going though these modules, students will have a solid grasp of how each technology works, the business models it engenders, the risks to revenues it creates, and the controls that can help assure both the migration process and the products offered. We will then review the different billing architectures for telecoms, and the customizations required to make them work for a nextgen wired opco. We will review the Postpaid, Radius, 95th Percentile, Bespoke and Convergent billing models, their controls and applications.

Practical Applications

  • Cable/ADSL/VOIP Briefing: Students will be provided with an exhaustive review of the standards, current market characteristics, common applications, future forecast, architecture, customer equipment, network infrastructure, topology and billing approaches utilized to assure the Cable, ADSL, and/or VOIP business and compare this to the other technologies
  • Cloud and IMS Briefing: Students will be provided with an exhaustive review of the standards, current market characteristics, common applications, future forecast, architecture, customer equipment, network infrastructure, topology and billing approaches utilized to assure the Cloud and IMS business and compare this to the other technologies
  • How to recognize, organize, assure and integrate NextGen Fiber, Cable and Cloud solutions into Postpaid billing environments, new or existing radius/diameter billing environments, new or existing SNMP/95thP Billing environments, and new or existing Bespoke or Convergent Billing environments

Key Concepts

  • Cable / ADSL/VOIP – In-depth technical, architecture and business model briefing
  • Cloud / IMS– In-depth technical, architecture and business model briefing
  • Principles of billing architectures and controls for Postpaid, Radius/Diameter, SNMP/95thP, Bespoke and Convergent Billing Solutions
