ZTE SDN IP RAN OAM solution offers 30% cut in labor cost

Telecom network vendor ZTE has demonstrated a new OAM (operations, administration and management) solution based on SDN (software defined networking) architecture – promising 30 percent cut in labor cost.

The SDN solution, showcased at the Broadband & TV Connect Asia conference in Singapore, will help telecom operators manage their networks.

The new Elastic SDN IP RAN OAM solution enables telecom operators to perform 90 percent of routine network OAM functions with one-touch control on mobile devices, generating at least 30 percent of labor cost savings.

ZTE claims that its new OAM solution performs unified management on access layer and aggregation layer equipment using a SDN controller. The new solution also supports plug-and-play and one-touch service deployment, reducing OAM workload for engineers and increasing their productivity.

This apart, ZTE’s new OAM system supports remote operation using personal computers, mobile phones and tablets, enabling users to perform network OAM out of the equipment room and complete 90 percent of routine OAM work using mobile terminals.
