We are pleased to announce that our innovative project: "Development of software for shared telecommunication infrastructure inventory" received funding from the EU for the fulfilment of the Programme Innovative Economy, Priority: Research and development of modern technologies. The purpose of SunVizion new project is to develop innovative software for management of open, broadband telecommunications networks, which are operated by more than one entity.

Due to business and regulatory trends in Poland and Europe (public telecommunications service, financing public infrastructure) new business model for the networks is created. This model involves the sharing and joint ownership by many organizations.

"Currently available solutions do not support the needs of the new trend in the telecommunications market. They are adapted to the traditional model with one entity investing, managing and operating the telecommunication network." said Piotr Saczuk, President Suntech S.A. "Our new software will be designed exclusively to support the new model of telecommunication infrastructure."

A new model of the network creates number of technological challenges for the inventory system. Network inventory systems have very high complexity on general. This complexity is related to many factors such as massive volumes of data and sensitive security issues. The new network model where few entities are engaged enhances this complexity and requires a completely new approach in rights management access, data migration, scalability, and service modeling.

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.
