Operators should avoid blindly implementing off-the-shelf
automation solutions if they want to see significant reductions in their
Operational Expense (OpEx), Iskratel’s CTO has warned.
According to Damjan Slapar, operators
looking to virtualise their networks can increase savings by up to 70% by
working with vendors to create and deploy tailor-made solutions which not only
keep ongoing costs to a minimum, but also future-proof infrastructures against
rising consumer demand.
Slapar highlighted leading French wireless internet provider Ozone SAS
as an example of where a customised solution brought additional benefits and
savings. When Ozone’s customer base rapidly rose, its Customer Premises
Equipment became incompatible with its existing provisioning system, leading to
manual and time-consuming activation and provisioning.
Iskratel’s designed a
software solution to seamlessly integrate Ozone’s third-party Customer Premises
Equipment into its provisioning system, streamlining its operations with
reduced activation and response times – which brought significant operational
savings of up to 70%.
