The Egyptian market leader Mobinil is replacing a number of disparate third-party systems for tracking infrastructure changes with one unified solution. The operator currently uses Clarity’s Infrastructure Management solution to support its network site rollout processes across two departments, and is upgrading its deployment to enable end-to-end tracking across all of its divisions.
The solution provides improved planning, purchasing and workforce deployment, providing the operator with greater control over resource allocation and analysis. Mobinil will be able to reduce both the costs and timescales for network rollouts, upgrades and decommissions across its network.
In addition, the solution will increase return on asset investment by reducing the time between initial infrastructure investment and first revenue generation. It will integrate with other OSS components using standards-based interfaces, providing Mobinil with the necessary data and automated processes framework to manage all the activities associated with complex, multiple site construction.
Moustafa Hegazi, Director of Network Planning & Rollout at Mobinil, commented “The solution will streamline network change programs, helping us meet timescales and budgets. It will ensure that we have consistent communication across our business. Rather than having to work with many different systems across multiple departments, all divisions will soon be able to hand over tasks seamlessly. The system ensures the correct data is captured, so employees always have the information readily available to complete their tasks.”
“Effectively managing the substantial investment made in network upgrades and changes is a logistical challenge for most service providers,” added Tony Garcia from Clarity. “Investing in tools that guide and manage the deployment of these assets has a direct impact on the bottom line - the sooner an asset is operational, the sooner revenue is generated.”
