Elisabetta Romano, head of OSS, Business Unit Support Solutions, Ericsson, says Plan to Provision for Mobile helps operators strike a sensible balance between automation and manual activities – reducing errors and costs, while deploying staff to do what they do best.
In addition, it eliminates manual, error-prone inventory assignment, and consistently coordinates all network and service activation.
Plan to Provision for Mobile improves design, capacity expansion and discovery and reconciliation processes through network configuration and equipment activation, all while preserving the integrity of the operator’s vital data, from data federation to data discovery and reconciliation.
Moreover, Plan to Provision for Mobile provides an operational environment that harmonizes the design and configuration of cell sites, radio parameters and backhaul transmission. It reduces the time it takes to go from RF planning to equipment activation for any mobile network.
