How we support the telecommunication industry
As the rate of digital innovation increases, so does the amount of data created. It’s estimated that every person makes 1.7 MB of data every second. Or more mind-numbing—2.5 quintillion bytes of data are produced by humans every day.
Central to the communication, currency, processing and application of this data is telecommunications. Because of this, telecommunications have risen to be a central component of large and enterprise organisations’ technology platforms and capabilities. And now smart and high-speed delivery is getting smarter and faster with the rollout of 5G.
For organisations with telecommunications central to their mission, SECTION6 enables their software to match the challenge of this rapidly evolving capability. We do this by building software to be highly reliable, scalable, secure, and adaptable—enabling telcos and their business consumers to keep up with the volume and speed of data and the innovation and competition being created with it.
We use on-demand compute resources to process data where it is best for hour business. At the edge closest to producers and consumers, in the cloud for cost-effective utility, and on-premise to have maximum control and security. Meaning you can choose where your compute resources are located based on business needs.
We integrate devices across the communications networks so you can deploy sensors to create your data. And then combine real-time sensor data with enterprise information for real-time decision making.
We understand that telecommunication providers have complex environments, requirements and solutions; in both their definition and application. Getting a solution into production usually involves many different parties, technologies, integrations, and challenging schedules. Success can not be achieved without applying the right skills and experience and in the right ways.
SECTION6 has the skills, experience, and capabilities to build and integrate software, so telcos remain on mission to meet their consumers and business customers’ demands.
Expertise we bring
Our expertise is at the edge of transformation—where maturity meets innovation and delivers you the maximum value. To enable you to gain the transformative benefits of software, we invest in those capabilities that align with our mission and purpose to build mission-critical software for organisations essential in people’s lives—meeting complex requirements by building software to be as simple as possible.
Knowing that the technology universe is continually expanding, we have identified six key capabilities that encapsulate the latest in mature technology innovation that we know enable our clients in the industries we serve to meet their goals better, faster, and for longer into the future.
DevOps enables business agility with improved reliability, economics, and security. DevOps is a practice that combines software development (Dev) and IT operations (Ops) and shortens the systems development through continuous delivery with a focus on software quality and security. DevOps is complementary to Agile software development. Together, delivering more reliably and to a higher standard of quality. Importantly DevOps helps address the increasing complexity of Software requirements and delivery.
While robotics automates work done by hand, cognitive automation focusses on work using our heads. Cognitive Automation simulates the human learning procedure to grasp knowledge from the dataset and extract the patterns on which it can make judgments that are often better and faster than humans. And because it can use many different data sources such as images, video, audio and text, its decision making is independent of the type and source of data. Cognitive automation unlocks and leverages all of your information together.
On-demand reflects the ability to deploy computing resources based on business needs rather than being restricted by physical constraints. Optimise your computing to provide the best client experience by moving the compute resource closer with edge computing for added speed and resilience. Centralise what you need for security and control. Burst out into the cloud to satisfy peak demand. Edge, cloud, on-premise, hybrid, and multi-cloud—where you need and want it—on-demand.
Industrial IoT (Internet of Things) encompasses embedded sensors, software and other technologies to connect and exchange data with other devices and systems over the Internet. IIoT devices monitor and control the physical mission system through real-time automation, including cognitive automation. Use IIoT to combine information technology with operational technology and help unleash the benefits of digital technology in the physical and biological world.
Cybersecurity includes information security and protects devices (IIoT) whose value is not just in any data and information but also in the physical tasks they may perform. We increase safety in the DevOps process by constantly adhering to and testing your security policies and requirements. And by injecting into the DevOps pipeline automated testing, static analysis, and the necessary security controls and checks along the DevOps lifecycle. Importantly we make our software easier and faster to adapt and deploy—so that you can respond more quickly when a new vulnerability is identified and patched.
Agile integration combines otherwise disparate islands of data, devices I(IIoT), and software functionality through integration and microservices inserted between software services, with minimal disruption. Aile integration builds on the principles and practices of agile software development by having an architecture that enables agility by decentralising both the executing platform and the developers that need to create the integrations. In keeping with agile principles, integration work is done by the people closest to the technologies that need to be integrated—people who are better placed to make decisions faster and complete work more efficiently.
