Siemens integrates customized solutions for the management of mobile infrastructure


HP, Micromuse, PSI, Steria, Tertio, and TTI Telecom join Siemens mobile OSS Partner Program for 3G infrastructure

Siemens Information and Communication Mobile (Siemens mobile) today announced on the occasion of TeleManagement in Nice that Hewlett-Packard (HP), Micromuse, PSI, Steria, Tertio and TTI have joined Siemens mobile OSS (Operations Support System) Partner Program.

The Mobile OSS Partner Program delivers coordinated, customized OSS solutions for 2G, 2.5G and 3G infrastructures to wireless service providers. Operators will benefit from easy access to a wide range of flexible operating and service solutions from leading best of breed vendors with the confidence that the solutions are pre-integrated and fully supported by Siemens mobile.

The pre-integrated solutions jointly developed by Siemens mobile and its mobile OSS Partners will provide value both to wireless operators that want to leverage the investment in its existing IT infrastructure and Greenfield operators seeking a complete solution for the end-to-end management of a new network infrastructure.

Service management and reliability are becoming key issues for operators as the size and complexity of the network increases, especially within a 3G infrastructure. The Siemens mobile OSS Partner Program will offer the full range of OSS competencies, fully integrated to support Siemens' wireless infrastructure and developed with Siemens technical cooperation.

The Mobile OSS Program provides operators with a single point of contact for the complete management of wireless infrastructure, including multi-vendor network environments. Siemens mobile will act either as a prime contractor to the operator or as an agent to its partners when a specific OSS vendor recommendation is requested.

The Siemens mobile OSS Partner Program includes an open interface policy, pre-integration and coordinated maintenance activities, delivering benefits such as speed and ease of integration and a smoother operational and maintenance process with regards to updates and new product releases. This enables operators who select vendors within the Program to drive down OPEX (Operational Expenditure) whilst benefiting from tailored software solutions from independent OSS vendors.

The Partner Program brings together the core competencies of Siemens mobile for telecommunications providers with the core competencies of its mobile OSS partners, offering operators a choice of end-to-end solutions at the network and service management level.
