Suntech S.A. has announced today a commercial launch of the SunVizion Network Information Management System (NIM). This innovative telecom IT solution that helps network operators to rationalize their OSS infrastructure, optimize business processes, speed up network rollouts and in consequence decrease their CAPEX and OPEX. SunVision NIM provides a common, standard-based information framework to the OSS applications and Business Process Management systems. The concept of NIM were developed and commercialized by Suntech in a close cooperation with several leading Mobile, Triple Play and Internet Services Providers.

 

To decrease the CAPEX and OPEX operators need a unified and comprehensive view of their networks and a quick access to all key network information. ?Today, telecom network data is highly fragmented and scattered over numerous systems, databases and files. It is often stored in inconsistent, vendor-specific formats.? says Andrzej Saczuk, VP Product Management at Suntech. ?By working with several leading mobile, broadband and cable operators we realized that the lack of network data harmonization and unification has negative impact on the efficiency of their investments and operations.? concludes Saczuk.

 

NOM, an alternative telecom service provider in Poland, has awarded a contract to Suntech SA for delivering an Automatic Service Provisioning System for its wireless broadband network based on 4G WiMAX technologies. Suntech's innovative solutions radically reduces the time and cost of WiMAX service activation for enterprise and individual customers. This is the first such a system deployed by a Polish operator and one of the first such systems in the Europe. The system will be soon available through a global network of Suntech's partners.

WiMAX, besides LTE (Long Term Evolution) is one of the fastest growing 4G radio access standards. Broadband Internet and other telecom and multimedia services based on the WiMAX technology are already offered by 600 operators in 149 countries. WiMAX services are available globally in 620 million points-of-presence (PoP) including 82 million such points in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). Several Polish broadband operators such as Netia, Inea, and NOM have already invested in this technology.

NewConnect-listed Suntech has published its 1Q results, which represent the first effect of its sales maximisation policy. Following the last-year changes in its cost structure, the company is about to implement specific sales and product solutions.
