Anite has signed an agreement with Nokia Networks under the Operations Support Systems interoperability initiative (OSSii) for access to Nokia’s OSS interfaces. Integration with Nokia product interfaces ensures that Anite’s Nemo products can accurately and comprehensively analyze wireless network data in their operator customer LTE networks.
OSSii was initiated to enable OSS interoperability between different OSS vendors’ equipment. Operations Support Systems integrate to a variety of telecom network technologies from several equipment vendors as well as the telecom operator business systems, making the integration of OSS complex and costly. The objectives of OSSii include enabling easier interoperability between OSS systems, reducing overall OSS integration costs, and enabling shorter time-to-market. Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia are the initiating parties of OSSii.
“Our operator customers will greatly benefit from our co-operation with Nokia. Ensuring our analytics products Nemo Xynergy and Nemo WindCatcher can access and accurately analyze OSS data is imperative,” said Kai Ojala, CTO at Anite’s Network Testing Business. “The analysis and optimization of LTE networks is becoming even more complex. We need to be able to utilize multiple data sources and analyze and optimize networks effectively and efficiently. Ultimately, the gain will be better service and network quality for the benefit of the end-users.”
Nemo Xynergy is a powerful, scalable, and easy-to-use web-based enterprise-level platform for analyzing drive test, OSS call trace, small cell/DAS, and network management data. It consists of four separate modules: Drive Test, Small Cell, Network Management, and CEM. Nemo WindCatcher is a desktop-based, vendor-neutral, multi-data drive test data post-processing tool. It supports a wide range of data inputs and all major data collection tools on the market.
