With NetAct 8, Nokia Solutions and Networks is virtualizing and modernizing its long-established Operations Support System (OSS) to make network operations simpler and nimbler. NetAct 8’s single, end-to-end view of multi-technology, multi-domain and multi-vendor networks helps operators to run these networks more efficiently and with lower costs. Also new are an off-the-shelf integration of Customer Experience Management (CEM) and Service Quality Management (SQM) products as well as a Service Fulfillment Introduction Pack to help operators launch services in weeks instead of months.
NSN NetAct 8 is a virtualized, single OSS for managing radio, core and transport networks. It provides off-the-shelf management of Network Function Virtualization, simplifying network operations and reducing operational expenses.
“Operators need a simpler way to run ever-more sophisticated networks as technologies like LTE and small cells are added. In this latest version of our industry-leading NetAct, we’ve brought OSS into the cloud age, using automation and virtualization to cut running costs, add greater flexibility and ensure superior network quality. NetAct 8 covers network operations with tight link to service operations, eliminating the need for multiple management systems,” said Peter Patomella, VP OSS at NSN.
