TM Forum Management World, Nice – 14th May 2013 – MYCOM, the leading independent provider of carrier-grade Service and Network Performance solutions, today announced that its NIMS-PrOptima™ performance management solution is being used in the expansion of the T-Mobile LTE network across Austria.
T-Mobile Austria was the first national operating company within T-Mobile Group to deploy NIMS-PrOptima™ for end-to-end performance management of its Mobile network across multiple vendors and technologies in 2G/3G/4G Radio Access, Packet Switching and Circuit Switching networks.
The initial selection in 2011 was part of a complete OSS transformation project to respond to increasing demand for data services, and included consolidating various performance monitoring tools and functions into a single OSS Performance Management system that provides end-to-end KPIs, is network vendor-agnostic and integrates with other OSS data feeds and systems.
“The introduction of LTE/4G introduces further complexity within a multi-layered network that requires network performance management systems to provide end-to-end visibility across multiple network domains from within a single unified system,” said Athanasios Avgeridis, Senior Vice President Operations, T-Mobile Austria, “MYCOM’s NIMS-PrOptima™ provides us the analysis and reporting capabilities we need to assist us in the smooth roll-out of our LTE network.”
MYCOM’s NIMS-PrOptima™ is a converged (Fixed/IP/Mobile) Service Assurance solution with out-of-the-box support for multiple technologies, domains and equipment vendors across access, backhaul, core and service networks. It processes large volumes of performance, configuration and services data in near real-time, has advanced correlation, analysis, reporting and visualization modules, and is highly flexible via automation, workflow and configuration capabilities.
Payam Taaghol, EMEA MD, at MYCOM commented “We are delighted to have been part of T-Mobile’s strategy for network performance management and central to its deployment of LTE network in Austria. It is a privilege and testimony to our technology that T-Mobile Group, one of the leading and most innovative Service Providers in the world, has selected NIMS-PrOptima™ as a standard solution for network performance management across their company.”
