Rapid developments in devices, new services and new apps are placing new demands on the network. Networks need to change continuously. Only a new approach to network management can deliver high-performing networks that also adapt to changes that take place outside the world operators can control - in the real world, not only the virtual world that is the network. It could be that traffic stops because of a snowstorm, that 200,000 people turn up to celebrate a jubilee, when a new shopping center is opened or when 1,000 office workers move into a new building. Whenever reality provides a new challenge, operators need to meet it. By making the network adaptive that is possible.
The new Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) Network Manager will be the platform for telecom operators to manage the transformation of their networks to new technologies, enabling management of hybrid networks, ranging from multi-standard radio, small cell and integrated Wi-Fi in indoor environments, Time Division Multiplexing, evolved IP networks, virtual network infrastructures and dynamic networking with Software Defined Networks (SDN).
This solution improves network performance and cuts operational costs by integrating and automating management functions across domains. Performing analysis in the cross-domain data layer enables new, superior insights for policy-based programmability. Ericsson Network Manager is an integrated part of Ericsson's full OSS portfolio for multi-vendor management and is fully scalable for the network needs of tomorrow.
Communication Service Providers know that achieving the best end-user customer experience is one of their top priorities today. The Ericsson Network Manager is a step-up and the right approach towards providing an integrated, end-to-end network view, along with the flexibility and automation needed to deliver a compelling customer experience that can differentiate the operator."
Thomas NorÉn, Vice President and Head of Product Area Radio, Ericsson, says: "This new style of management allows us to go from a reactive management to proactive and predictive programmability of the network. In other words, providing a real-time OSS that supports differentiation of performance-critical services end to end. By unifying the world of management systems, our vision is to cut in half the time-to-market for network services."
