The right answer to GSM operators challenges
Network growth, customer satisfaction, competitive value-added services — GSM operators face tough challenges every day. To help them make the grade, Alcatel has developed the Evolium Operation & Maintenance Center-Radio (OMC-R), a flexible, easy-to-use solution which provides Network Element (NE) management for Alcatel BSS voice and data services, including GPRS.
The Evolium OMC-R capitalizes on Alcatel’s experience to meet operations and maintenance needs for scalable and seamless operations, as well as clear and real-time information.
Seamless operations and network scalability.
The Evolium OMC-R helps streamline network configuration thanks to hardware plug-and-play capability. For example, no OMC-R command is needed when introducing a new BTS TRX in the field.
Thanks to its distributed Manager/Agent architecture, the Evolium OMC-R is flexible enough to fit any network topology and to ensure smooth network growth.
The Evolium OMC-R can manage an entire region composed of thousands of cells. You can achieve optimum network operability by distributing supervision and display processes across multiple servers. And your BSS network can be supervised simultaneously by several operators, even located on different premises.
In addition, the wide choice of transmission options, including X.25, LAN, WAN and others, means that distance and transmission support are not an issue.
Evolium OMC-R Management services are set up according to ITU/T X. Users find exactly the information they need — rich in operational content — quickly and easily. including: TM • • • • • • • • Fault Management. fast fault diagnosis is achieved by customization of alarm views offering powerful sorting and filtering capabilities.
