AIRCOM Partners with HP on Fixed-line Network Management

AIRCOM International, which provides network planning and optimization services, is partnering with consultancy, today announced a partnership deal with HP to deliver an integrated network management system to one of the largest fixed-line operators in Europe.

The deal will see AIRCOM supply its OPTIMA Performance Management Solution as part of Hewlett Packard's (HP) overall network management system, OpenView. This will add advanced reporting functionality to HP's existing suite of products, allowing users to generate specific KPI queries from a single platform and monitor the network from multiple offices, departments and geographies.

HP's OpenView is deployed by major corporations across many different industry sectors. HP has partnered with AIRCOM in a joint proposal to the Turkish operator as it seeks to upgrade its existing network and roll out next generation voice, video, data and other high speed DSL-based services to in excess of 40 million customers.

"The operator in question currently operates a multi-vendor system that comprises of more than 10 different vendors each delivering the network infrastructure solutions," said Mustafa Bartin, Country Manager Consulting & Integration at HP Turkey. "With such a large inventory of different vendor equipment, the need for a single management system that can extract key information from all the network elements became a critical factor in the purchase decision. This joint proposal has ensured that we are in the best possible position to deliver significant process efficiencies and network monitoring to the customer."
