LG U+, a communications service provider in South Korea, has deployed an integrated solution using Oracle Communications Unified Inventory Management and Oracle Communications Network Integrity to model, discover and manage its existing 3G and planned 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network.
Deployed in less than six months, the integrated solution enables LG U+ to automatically discover network equipment configurations, manage them using a standards-based network resource management system, and ensure ongoing network data accuracy.
The solution will enable LG U+ to effectively meet new 4G LTE network requirements including 4G network modelling, support for integrated IP/Ethernet/Optical technologies, and hybrid 3G/4G network environments.
Both Oracle Communications Unified Inventory Management and Oracle Communications Network Integrity are based on the TM Forum’s Information Framework (SID), which provides a unified, standards-based reference data model.
“The integrated Oracle applications provide a flexible network resource management system with improved network configuration data accuracy,” said Young Keun Han, chief research engineer, network R&D unit of the research institute of technology, LG U+. “This solution prepares us to support the introduction and management of a more complicated 4G LTE network.”
“Oracle Communications Unified Inventory Management and Oracle Communications Network Integrity, working as integrated components, help communications service providers plan, build and optimize new network technologies such as 4G LTE to accelerate revenue growth, maximize profit margins and limit risk,” said Dan Ford, Vice President of Product Marketing, Oracle Communications.
