Blue Planet – Inventory


In today’s competitive environment, service providers need to deliver new, dynamic services in an agile manner. However, the data needed to offer those solutions is typically siloed in legacy, static, inflexible inventory, and Operational Support Systems (OSSs) with proprietary interfaces, making the data complex to correlate and understand. As a result, key operational processes that rely on these systems—such as network planning, service fulfillment, and assurance—involve numerous slow, error-prone, manual tasks. What is needed is a unified, simplified view that allows operations teams to quickly access the data they need. Service providers are under increasing pressure to reduce costs and launch more software-centric and on-demand services to meet their customers’ expectations. They need new inventory solutions that provide the flexibility to model new, dynamic services and provide an up-to-date view of the network so resources can be allocated rapidly, and service quality can be assured confidently
