Knowledge-Based Network Planning
Automate rollouts and inventory updates.
Today’s on-demand world intensifies the importance of bandwidth and speed for both fixed and mobile service providers. Fiber and 3G/4G/5G rollouts are being aggressively pursued, which requires ongoing network extension and reconfiguration. FNT’s Telecommunication Resource Inventory and Cable Management solutions provide the information and tools providers need to make the network changes that will keep them competitive. Specifically: accurate information about resource availability to plan network changes, and a user-friendly management system to execute. The result? The ability to build and maintain an agile telecommunications infrastructure that can adapt to a rapidly evolving digital world.
Build a Stronger Network with an Integrated Approach
What sets FNT apart is the completeness of our solution. FNT supports all types of line-based and wireless network technologies. Our solutions integrate management of outside plant cable networks with logical telecommunication transport networks. This integrated approach greatly improves the efficiency and quality of all planning and engineering activities. The core of our solution is a central data repository that associates the services being offered and the physical, logical and virtual assets and resources required to deliver them. This single source for all network and service data is accessible to users anywhere in the organization. It’s a solid foundation for all planning and network transformation activity.
DOCUMENT assets and related processes for physical, logical and service resources
Achieve full transparency across all resources and layers with FNT’s central data repository for telecommunication, data center and IT resources.
- CI library of nearly 60,000 IT and telecommunications components, stored as objects, along with their logical relationships.
- Automated validation rules prevent database input errors.
- Software integrates with key systems to consolidate and share data.
- Links traditional telecom resources with data center and virtualized IT resources to manage NFV-based hybrid environments.
Link information to intelligently PLAN network changes
Plan rollouts, extensions and changes on accurate as-is documentation, with a consistent approach across all resources and infrastructures.
- Provides a comprehensive, integrated graphical view of physical and logical resources and services.
- Shows the impact of planned changes before implementation.
- Automatically generates work orders.
- Automates documentation updates when changes are made.
Achieve end-to-end MANAGEMENT of all technologies and resources used in the production of services
Actively manage networks and infrastructures to deliver consistently reliable services and avoid network outages during the transformation process.
- Automate planning processes with interfaces to higher order and external systems.
- Identify and reroute services affected by planned work.
- Use the CI library to standardize components and simplify their integration into the network.
- Expedite work order execution by integrating with warehouses and ERP-based stock management tools.
- One centralized repository across telecommunication, IT and data center resources make it easy to introduce new virtualized resources and connect them to the data center and traditional telecommunication resources.
ADVANCED SOFTWARE FOR TELECOMMUNICATION PROVIDERS
Ensuring reliable network service is a top priority for ICT providers. The better you manage your infrastructure resources, the better able you’ll be to make good on this requirement. You need the right information and a management solution to make it actionable, and FNT delivers both.
FNT Command documents and manages all resources and connections in your networks, independent from underlying hardware vendor technology. This valuable insight helps improve workflows, ensure capacity, plan changes and speed up issue resolution.
Watch our short videos for an overview of how to use FNT Command to perform everyday tasks easier and with greater effectiveness.
Why you should take a unified approach to resource management for your 5G transformation and how FNT can help make it happen.
3G is the past, 4G is the present and 5G is the future. Regardless of where you are on the spectrum, you have work to do. IoT and the rise of edge computing make network transformation a requirement, not an option, in today’s digital world.
