Nokia Networks consolidation service promises 30% cut in Opex

Nokia Networks' Global Delivery Center (GDC) in India

Nokia Networks today announced its new consolidation services that promise 30 percent savings in Opex.

Telecom operators can address the challenges of consolidating network operations and managing mobile / fixed communications convergence.

Nokia Networks, as per the revised service package, can analyze an operator’s current operations and recommend efficiency improvements, centralize several Network Operations Centers (NOCs) into one, and manage an operator’s entire infrastructure for all fixed and mobile technologies.

# 30% Opex reductions
# improve first level resolution by 23%
# to raise transport network quality by 5%

78 percent of operators want support for consolidation, according to a recent study conducted by telecom analysis firm Ovum.

Nokia NOC Consolidation Service delivers centralized benefits.

Nokia Managed Transport Service looks after the operations and maintenance of a mobile operator’s entire multivendor, multi-technology transport infrastructure. Besides raising network quality with 5 percent with operations for radio, core and transport, Nokia has observed a 30 percent reduction in Opex in field maintenance.

“Streamlining processes through consolidation is a global trend, while convergence has emerged as an equal priority with 29 percent of operators today being mobile only,” said Amit Dhingra, vice president Managed Services of Nokia Networks.

The telecom report says 52 percent of mobile operators have implemented or are implementing a centralized operations strategy of some sort, 23 percent are considering it, with 68 percent working with a network vendor on a centralization project.
