VimpelCom Goes Live with the NetCracker OSS

VimpelCom has deployed NetCracker OSS for a single view of its fixed and mobile networks. The project was delivered as part of VimpleCom’s initiative, aimed at increasing operational efficiency through consolidation of IT systems and optimization of IT infrastructure. The companies said the deployment has enabled VimpelCom to achieve a dramatic decrease of the number of inventory systems.

NetCracker’s OSS solution provides VimpelCom with an up-to-date, end-to-end view of over 500,000 interconnected equipment units located on the company’s 45,000 sites and 85,000 customer premises as well as a deep insight into the entire network topology. In addition, NetCracker OSS allows for deeper integration with the company’s other support systems. This enhanced functionality greatly increases the efficiency of VimpelCom’s fulfillment and assurance processes and reduces OpEx and operational complexity. With this implementation, NetCracker’s OSS solution is planned to be the core platform for inventory and fulfillment.

NetCracker is a division of NEC.
