Offering 10% cut in network Capex, Amdocs unveils OSS solution for LTE base station planning

By Telecom Lead Team: Amdocs has launched Amdocs Single
Click Network Rollout solution, a planning and design solution that enables
mobile service providers to reduce design time for new base stations and
optimize configuration for LTE, 4G and 3G networks.

The Amdocs Single Click Network Rollout solution can
reduce base-station design times by up to 90 percent by using pre-configured,
automated design processes. Integration with existing Amdocs OSS modules can
further improve design times.

The solution can reduce capital expenditure by up to 10
percent by providing an optimized design that maximizes data capacity. It also
reduces redesigns by up to 50 percent by validating the installed base station
against plan.

The new OSS planning solution allows network planning
teams to scale their operations with lower capital expenditures by addressing
the challenge of new LTE network rollouts and expanded Ethernet backhaul

A Tier 1 service provider has in excess of 10,000 new
base stations to design, build, test and commission when rolling out an LTE
network. According to 4G Americas, some 400 service providers are preparing for
LTE network rollouts in the next three to five years. Rapid rollouts are
critical for operators to ensure a better customer experience and faster
network monetization.

The Amdocs Single Click Network Rollout solution is live
at two Tier 1 service providers. A European service provider has used the
solution to design more than 3,000 LTE cell sites, reporting estimated planning
efficiency gains of 80 percent.

“With consumers increasingly demanding more data
services, service provider investment in network data capacity and performance
is essential to ensure a good customer experience. By optimizing the planning
and design processes, Amdocs Single Click Network Rollout solution allows
service providers to quickly expand their networks in a more cost-effective
manner,” said Rebecca Prudhomme, vice president Amdocs product and
solutions marketing.
