In the emerging market of Ghana, MTN Ghana is the leading wireless telecom operator in this West Africa country. To help improve its mobile phone service for its customers, Aviat Networks' professional services group worked with the operator to increase network visibility (knowledge of how the network's functioning) to 97 percent in the critical capital region of Accra. This was accomplished using ProVision, Aviat's leading network management software for mobile and other wireless backhaul networks.

All software for Eclipse and ProVision wasbench-tested in Aviat Networks’ Ghanalaboratory before deployment.ProVision is Aviat Networks’ comprehensiveand feature-rich network managementsystem. It is used by MTN Ghana to managethe national network, both Aviat and third-party devices. ProVision’s displays andreports provide a complete overview ofnetwork health and performance. To viewthe Accra region in ProVision, Services usedProVision’s fast deployment functions,including auto-deployment, which locates andidentifies Eclipse and other network devicesautomatically, and network health reports.
