Mode of Operation

Given task/authority
global owner of DfR concept drive reliability research

global function all ex-NET and ex-Siemens products and services

improve business success by optimized reliability performance create innovative reliability improvements enable adaptation of new product categories, products and

focus on reliability aspects seen by the customer, i.e. E-2-E reliability due to limited amount of own resources the impact relies much on
influencing skills and university co-operation

Work package #1 Global DfR implementation:

Intent: Drive DfR globally, new reliability concepts to be demonstrated and proven within RST projects. 1. Responding to customer requests/complaints (AT&T case as a reference) 2. Help desk for acute problems For example, recommendations related to derating, new technology adaptation, reliability theory 3. Training (10-hour package available) 4. Web pages with training material, presentations, contact persons, review network

Work package #1: DfR global implementation

5. Program support SMART, reducing the need for maintenance *utilization of redundancy (adaptive beam forming algorithm & new maintenance strategy implemented in alarm functionality) *GaN stability study (TKK) Guran, revising the lifetime requirements *lifetime requirement update based on consumer product requirements *light FMEA i.e. finding out probable weak points followed by HALT

Work package #2: E-2-E Reliability

Intent: Improve the reliability seen by our customers. Network operating without interruptions. Approach: Network modeling. Development of smart solutions. Influencing to 1) allocate resources for improvement projects 2) adapt best practices. 1. System reliability modeling 2. Managed services *fast cure for network level concerns 2. NFF reduction *work force needed 3. Network control SW improvement *alarms to be more explicit 4. BIST development (Oulu University)
