ZSmart Digital OSS – 5G-Master
Manage, Measure and Maintain with ZSmart 5G Master
In the era of 5G, mobile communication technology provides a powerful catalyst for the digital development of society. At the same time, it also promotes the further development of vertical industries, such as autonomous driving, manufacturing, energy industry and other areas not previously covered. It continues to play a deeper role in the industries already involved in the financial and medical & health.
Diversified and personalized requirements have also brought enormous challenges to operators. The emerge of network slicing provides a solution. Using virtualization technology to build multiple isolated private networks can maximize the adaptability of business needs and the efficiency of network resources.
Meanwhile, the changes in business form, business model and operation mode caused by 5G technology also put forward higher requirements for OSS capability:
1、From the provision of traditional communication services, operators have now expanded to VR/AR, 4K/8k HD Live, Smart Grid, V2X and many other fields. The business model is changing, and the business traffic model will also have different patterns.
In such circumstances, how to achieve agility service innovation? How to provide effective protection to the SLA commitment to industry customers? The OSS is required to have multi-channel complex control, business agility, and effective support for different traffic patterns.
2、The emerge of 5G network slicing creates space for operators to deepen cooperation in vertical industries such as power, energy, manufacturing, commerce, sports, film and television entertainment.
How to meet the different network needs of vertical industries? How does OSS implement slicing lifecycle management (design, create, operate, maintain, upgrade, and terminate)? How to build a 5G ecosystem based on the network capabilities of pan-aware (end), wide connection (pipe), and super-smart (cloud)?
ZSmart OSS 5G-Master solution combines Whale Cloud’s research and pilots practises with big-3 Chinese CSPs.

ZSmart 5G-Master integrates infrastructure, networks and innovative applications to achieve centralized management of complex network and diversified service forms. From a global perspective, rationalized resource allocation and network optimization to achieve cross-domain and cross-vendor end-to-end business orchestration and collaboration.
ZSmart 5G-Master solution provides a centralized closed-loop management of design, fulfillment, and assurance, which facilitates operators to improve resource utilization, streamline operational processes, and accelerate service release cycles.
In the face of the coexistence of legacy and new forms of networks in the long-term evolution of 5G, hybrid orchestration is being used to mix and match legacy networks and SDN/NFV .
In the process of evolution, ZSmart 5G-Master continuously integrates new technologies as pluggable business packages, adapts to changes in technology and service requirements, to maintains strong competitiveness for operators in differentiated competition.
ZSmart 5G-Master builds a stereo, multi-dimensional, open, closed-loop operation and maintenance system through real-time unified ICT monitoring, cross-layer cross-domain root failure analysis, automated diagnosis and recovery.
ZSMART 5G-Master is based on AI technology and strategy-driven. Meanwhile, it is equipped with self-learning experience accumulation, intelligent decision-making and automatic execution features, to enable fast network perception and efficient fault recovery, so as to guarantee extreme customer experience.
ZSmart 5G-Master solution provides a visual design, verification and operation platform for the all services, breaking the barriers of inter-professional (wireless network, transmission network, core network, data network) and realizing end-to-end service innovation and operation.
The solution supports network automation orchestration and on-demand deployment by using virtualization techniques of SDN/NFV. Therefore, achieving service flexibility, which greatly saves the labor cost of deployment, accelerates the service innovation, and greatly reduces TTM.
ZSmart 5G-Master solution provides full lifecycle management of real-time changing elastic network resources. It includes infrastructure layer resources, network function layer virtualization resources, and network service layer resources. It dynamically senses the changes of each layer of resources, provides real-time data basis for resource scheduling, network optimization, and service guarantee, and supports the intelligent and automated operations of the entire network.
Based on the relationship between CFS/RFS/ Resource, ZSmart 5G-Master solution adopts intelligent policies to drive the automatic execution of business processes. The unified model simplifies the network operation process, eliminates the hidden risk caused by human misoperation or inadequate transfer of experience and knowledge, and makes use of the advantages of network automation to flexibly implement the fast delivery of network and services.
ZSmart 5G-Master solution automatically detects fault location and realizes rapid self-healing through AI-based policy-driven Network orchestration. Thereby achieving the intelligent repair and agile O&M of the network.
At the same time, 5G-Master analyzes the process and establishes a cross-domain and cross-layer closed loop fault management. Through the automatic operation and maintenance capabilities, CSPs can save huge labor cost of O&M. Through AI self-learning, the O&M knowledge that are automatically accumulated and sedimentary accreted can benefit automatic operation and greatly reduce operation cost.
