Operations Support Systems Interoperability Initiative (OSSii) agreement with HuaweiWESTFORD, MA: In a bid to extend the availability, reliability and capability of the TrueCall Geoanalytics platform offered by NETSCOUT, the company has recently signed an Operations Support Systems Interoperability Initiative (OSSii) agreement with Huawei. Through its Adaptive Service Intelligence (ASI) technology, NETSCOUT enables the service delivery environment to identify performance issues. The technology provides insights into network-based security threats as well as helps in quickly resolving issues that can cause business disruptions or impact user experience.

With the recently penned deal, NETSCOUT becomes the only end-to-end service assurance provider with full-license data sources for the Radio Access Network (RAN) to have OSSii agreements with Ericsson, Nokia and Huawei. OSSii speeds up the time-to-market of new services by reducing the overall integration costs and promotes competition for network level OSS systems.

TrueCall enables operators to drive new technologies, improve network performance, optimize customer experience and reduce Operational Expense (OpEx) by providing real-time and live RAN data. Some of the benefits that TrueCall provides are- understand live, real-time network performance; improve network performance statistics by optimizing mobile network performance and customer experience. It allows users to confidently deploy VoLTE and other QoS services at low cost and minimize risk.

Small-cell deployments and other network investments can be properly planned to achieve raise in network performance while benefiting from Capital Expenditure (CapEx). Continuous flow of data from RAN helps in replacing inefficient and costly drive testing.

 Richard Kenedi, President, Service Provider Business Unit, NETSCOUTstates, “TrueCall supports high-value, mission-critical, real-time, 24x7 network-wide applications that we can extend with our three OSSii agreements. In addition, it strengthens the end-to-end visibility of our Service Assurance tools by extending them into the RAN.”
