Telecom Lead Europe: Finnish telecom equipment maker Nokia
Siemens Networks has unveiled its Operations on Demand portal that
benefits mobile operators by accessing a single entry point to their network
Nokia Siemens claims that mobile operators will have a
new way of handling millions of data points generated by mobile networks.
The portal eliminates the time to log-in to multiple
different management tools. The portal’s customizable dashboards are designed
to offer multiple views of the network and its topology as well as suggested
actions and process steps.
Operations on Demand comprises content packs for specific
workflows such as site creation, network optimization and network health. Based
on the same innovative concept as CEM on Demand, the content packs enable
operators to take a phased approach and choose the specific workflows that are
relevant and timely for their organization to automate and optimize.
Recently, telecoms analyst firm Telesperience said that
reducing operating costs and improving the efficiency of operating systems are
the two top drivers for change in the OSS domain.
A single entry point requiring just one login is a key
feature of Operations on Demand. For typical network operations personnel, the
login process alone can take 20 minutes every day to access their many
different tools,” said Peter Patomella, head of the network and subscriber data
management business line at Nokia Siemens Networks.
By simplifying network management and ensuring the
quality of network data, Operations on Demand helps improve network key
performance indicators (KPIs) and provide the best possible insight for service
operations. It also frees up personnel to focus on managing the customer
experience, which is one of their top business priorities.
Nokia Siemens Networks’ existing products and solutions
are the foundation for Operations on Demand. The NetAct product family provides
the multi-vendor and multi-technology foundation to obtain the data needed for
a complete network overview.
