New version 12 of SunVizion OSS/BSS platform includes number of changes which facilitate work with the system, lower implementation and development costs and open up new possibilities of implementing partners solutions.


Suntech announced today the release of version 12 of its innovative SunVizion OSS/BSS platform dedicated to telecom carriers. New version includes number of improvements like open SOA architecture, new applications, new interfaces or integration with on-line GIS platforms. All the changes facilitate system's implementation and integration as well as minimize maintenance and development costs. They also allow the growing network of SunVizion Partners to better contribute to the solutions.

SunVizion is a world's first telco Network Inventory using augmented reality technology. The new software is dedicated for telecommunication operators to ease field management and repairs of infrastructure elements.


Augmented reality (AR) is a technology which provides the user with a combination of live direct view of the real world and additional information about what they currently see. After pointing device's camera at an object, one picture, of two layers, is displayed on the screen: it is still the same object, but now with additional information about it, automatically downloaded by the mobile device from the Internet.

 

SunVizion Network Inventory allows its users to capture, store and manage all key data about their network infrastructure, configuration, status and performance. SunVizion also helps in expanding and maintaining networks, for instance by detecting a network failure, analyzing its impact on services and subscribers and automatically initiating necessary customer care and field operations. AR interface to Network Inventory gives easier and faster access to network information practically without any user trainings.

Suntech S.A., a leader in advanced technologies for telecommunications, can successfully implement company's development strategy to expand on European market due to the presence on NewConnect. The company since its debut has been recognized on a wider scale and raised growing interest among companies from outside Poland.

 

According to the latest IPO Watch Europe report (first quarter of 2011) NewConnect market is one of the four Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE) markets that is the first one in Europe when it comes to debuts number. High growth rate of the number of Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) on the WSE shows that Polish enterpreneurs have aspirations to create strong companies offering innovative products not only on the domestic market, but also on the demanding European markets.

 

Leading telecommunication provider Suntech S.A., enters the European market with the innovative Network Information Management system, SunVizion, aimed at European Tier 2/3 network operators.


The entire process of development of telecom infrastructure is costly, long-lasting and risk-weighted. Another problem is the non-uniform distribution of information between technical and managerial departments which reduces the overall performance of the company. To optimize business processes one needs an accurate overview of the network and immediate access to all of its elements and data. It is ensured by ERP systems, based on solutions such as SAP or Oracle, commonly used by major corporations. However, the data collected by these systems cannot be viewed according to the geographic location of the expenditure in the investment process.

 

 

Quality product and service portfolio pays back to customers and investors. Suntech and its network information management brand - SunVizion (http://www.sunvizion.com) - have again been appreciated by the market. Their suite of Business and Operations Support Systems has been acquired by Milmex (http://www.milmex.com.pl). Beyond delivery of state-of-the-art B/OSS, SunVizion will integrate business and technical processes of Milmex in a workflow approach. Suntech will thus become the key provider of IT solutions for Milmex as well as the integrator of its network resources.

 

SunVizion teamed up with PKP Informatyka (http://www.pkp-informatyka.pl/en/index.htm) to implement its Network Inventory system within Polish railway telecom operator, TK Telekom (http://www.tktelekom.pl/). The contract covers the system delivery, implementation, data migration and integration with other legacy systems of the client.

 

The project will contribute to the development and improvement of network infrastructure of TK Telecom and will definitely broaden the scope and quality of its services. With a fiber network of 6000km network information management became essential. SunVizion gives operators the ability to introduce new services and processes - says Piotr Saczuk, CEO of Suntech. Several of our solutions have already been successfully implemented across a number of Cable Operators, including Triple and Quadruple-play ones, now we aim also at addressing Alternative Carriers - adds Saczuk.

SHIFTING PARADIGMS

Until recently Network Management was costly and time consuming. Rigid pricing models made it hard for smaller Cable and Triple Play Operators to adopt quality solutions. Furthermore, the implementation process was lengthy, way beyond business scope of growing telecoms.

 

With SUNVIZION - a new Network Information Management developed by SUNTECH - we shift the paradigm. Why?

 

We offer a cost-efficient alternative with little CAPEX to cut down the cost of deployment. More, we deliver strong business intelligence capabilities with the solution to back up strategic decisions of our customers. Finally, we leverage the potential of ESRI technologies for state-of-the-art performance.

 

Suntech S.A. (NewConnect: SUN), a leading CEE vendor of specialized OSS/BSS solutions for Mobile, Triple-Play and Broadband Service Providers has announced today that Aero2, the operator of the first commercial LTE network in Poland, has decided to use the SunVizion Network Inventory System provided by Suntech S.A. to optimize and speed up the full-scale rollout of its LTE 1800 MHz network in 2011. The network will be based on Huawei's LTE TDD technology and will be commercially operated by Mobyland, a wholly owned subsidiary of Aero2.

 

The growing popularity of HSPA dongles and smartphones are driving many 3G networks to the limits. Mobile data usage is expected to increase exponentially over next five years from average of 85MB/month in 2010 to 700MB/month in 2015 per smartphone subscriber. This is driving operators' interest in LTE (Long Term Evolution), a 4G technology that can deliver mobile data more cost efficiently than the existing 3G, HSPA, and HSPA+ systems. LTE can provide downlink of at least 100 Mbps, an uplink of at least 50 Mbps. According to the industry organization GSA 156 mobile operators in 64 countries are currently investing in LTE infrastructure.
