ZTE announced that it has
demonstrated the latest version of its comprehensive ZSmart BSS/OSS at the
Managed Service World Congress 2011 in Berlin, Germany.
ZTE’s updated ZSmart BSS/OSS is a
new-generation full network business support system / operation support system
(BSS/OSS) that can be customized according to each operator’s needs.
The ZSmart-iNOC and ZSmart-xMAN solutions
that are part of the ZSmart BSS/OSS suite offer major new management
capabilities. Besides traditional BSS/OSS functions, ZSmart-iNOC focuses on
improving efficiency for field engineers, and integrating a wide range of
resources to provide powerful support for field engineers.
The handheld terminal function enables field
engineers to scan materials, process electronic work orders, remotely locate
problems, trace geographical locations, query mini-knowledge bases and remotely
take pictures/sign in. This significantly improves outdoor work efficiency.
Tests show that ZSmart-iNOC can lower average
troubleshooting time (MTTR) by as much as 75 percent, and is able to reduce
required operator maintenance staff by up to 21 percent.
ZSmart-xMAN is a full lifecycle solution for
FTTx networks. It covers the Assurance and Fulfillment domains of an eTOM
(enhanced Telecoms Operations Map) and involves product lifecycle management in
SIP (Session Initiation Protocol), which provides an open and intelligent
business operation platform for operators, reduces operation and maintenance
costs and significantly improves O&M (Operations and Maintenance)
“ZTE’s ZSmart BSS/OSS integrated
solution has provided customized services for more than 50 operators around the
world, covering more than 350 million end users,” said Zhou Yong, vice general
manager of international markets at ZTE BSS/OSS.
We believe that, based on global experience
and major improvements to the system, we can help operators improve operation
and maintenance efficiency and reduce business operation cost by margins that
really impact their bottom line,” Yong added.
