Network resource inventory database
Providers of IP & optical connectivity services, especially in the enterprise and wholesale markets, need a highly accurate network inventory. The connectivity solutions are tailored to the unique requirements of each customer and the underlying network resources are non-fungible.
Telecommunications inventory management systems are often unaffordable for those CSPs, especially the small- and medium-sized ones. Many of them remain without an inventory management system and end up with an unmanaged and cumbersome environment of spreadsheets, network schematics and homegrown databases. The lack of integration with the network leads to poor data quality and ultimately users cannot rely anymore on the data.
Some CSPs turn towards enterprise IT asset management solutions. Those solutions rapidly show their limits with respect to the specifics of a telecommunications network, such as the complex dependencies in a multi-layer telecommunications network.
The key benefits of NetworkMining's network resource inventory database are:
- Process agnostic network resource inventory that can be integrated into an existing OSS. It protects past investment into processes and systems.
- First class mediation layer that ensures a highly accurate and detailed network resource inventory. It is the foundation of any inventory management system and should not be compromised upon.
NetworkMining offers therefore a cost effective alternative to the inventory management systems of integrated OSS suites.
