Indonesia’s market leading operator has begun the next phase of its transformation programme supporting its Next Generation Network (NGN) Initiative. PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia’s latest deployment – overseen by solutions provider Clarity - enables Fulfilment and Assurance capabilities for TELKOM’s broadband access network.
The programme, which began in 2006, incorporates the migration to a flexible and unified operational support system. To date, TELKOM has unified their Switching, Transmission, Multimedia, Fixed Wireless and Metro-E domains onto the Clarity OSS solution.
This latest solution for Broadband Access continues the consolidation of TELKOM’s networks onto one management platform, and will feature inventory management, discovery and reconciliation, service configuration and activation, auto-provisioning, and trouble ticketing.
By unifying their network management using the Clarity OSS, TELKOM is able to implement an umbrella solution, to support their entire NGN topology, including DSLAM, MSAN, WiMAX and GPON inventory.
“Standardising our operational support systems is one of the four pillars of our transformation program. It eliminates the challenges of proprietary network and resource management systems, so that we can implement new business strategies easily and efficiently,” commented Indra Utoyo, Director of IT Service and Solution (CIO) at TELKOM.
Jon Newbery, Chief Executive Officer at Clarity, added: “Operators worldwide are deploying next generation networks to lead their markets with innovative new services using a convergent IP backbone. By supporting any network or technology, Clarity greatly simplifies and reduces the cost of introducing new network technologies, so that as operators grow and innovate, they can leverage their existing infrastructure to get to market quickly.”
