TM Forum Catalyst 2018: “Outstanding Use of TM Forum Assets”
After two award-winning runs as participants of the Smart Industrial Manufacturing Catalyst in Nice 2016 and 2017, this year Infosim® joined the “Connected Citizens” Catalyst team. The Connected Citizens Catalyst is a proof of concept of a Smart City Business Digital Platform which delivers the digital capability for smart services in today’s dynamic cities. We were happy to cooperate with the Champions Orange, NTT Group, Metropole de Nice Cote D’Azur, and City of Saint Quentin as well as the other Participants ForgeRock, BearingPoint, Civimetrix Telecom, and Globetom, the group extended this Catalyst to a “Smart City Enabling Digital Platform”.
With this extended scope, the Connected Citizens Catalyst is a proof of concept of a Smart City Business Digital Platform. It delivers the digital capability for smart services in today’s dynamic cities. Services that deliver cleaner, safer, more adaptive and efficient environments for inhabitants, enterprises and visitors alike. The Connected Citizens platform enables developers and providers to create and deploy innovative services for cities and their citizens. It is based on TM Forum Open APIs and a scalable cloud of enabling solutions.
Within this Catalyst, Infosim® is responsible for one of the key roles, the operation of the digital platform. The vision is to enable a unified and central operation of the Connected Citizens Catalyst Platform. This encompasses resources and data from the different distributed components building the platform, reaching all the way from the IoT edge through the network to the cloud. Operations cover monitoring and performance management, alarming and fault management, as well as provisioning and configuration management. Drill-downs to the different underlying solutions allow for further interaction. StableNet® by Infosim® is a perfect fit for this challenging task.
