Plant Inventory and Assignment
Gain total visibility and control over your network
SaskTel International’s Plant Inventory and Assignment solution, Optius™, enables you to inventory and track all the network resources that are needed to deliver your services – allowing you to take back control of your network.
With so many new network investments, you’re having difficulties understanding what resources are fully available and that limits your ability to introduce new services that you need to better serve your customers and compete in the market.
From physical resources such as the cables in the ground and services in your data centres to logical resources like IP addresses and telephone numbers, Optius’ Plant Inventory and Assignment capabilities will provide you with full visibility into your network and allow you to understand the effects of customer service activities in real time.
With this information, you can introduce new services faster, make better decisions, forecast future network needs, resolve troubles quicker, and stay ahead of your competition.
Optius is capable of managing both copper (with pair bonding support) and fibre networks.
No matter what new technologies you would like to implement, Optius is ready to help you take advantage of your investment.
Key Drivers of Plant & Inventory Management and Assignment
Network Assets not Centrally Managed
Network resources are rarely managed in a single place, leading to issues with inventory reconciliation, proper customer invoicing and billing, and lack of control over network costs.
Without visibility into your network and optimized network usage, it is difficult to achieve desired returns on your network investments.
Increasing service complexity
Inventory tracking becomes more difficult as services become more complex. This creates problems in the management of CAPEX and OPEX in a time when telecoms need to control costs to maintain growth and profitability.
Total Visibility - Total Control
Physical and Logical Inventory Management
Obtain total visibility with a complete, accurate, and detailed view of both logical (virtual) and physical resources on your network.
Optimally manage your local access copper and fibre network, the transport access network, along with xDSL technologies and provisioning and activation of triple play services.
Optius enables efficient assignment of resources and can calculate the required automated and manual work to fulfill service orders in the most efficient manner.
Fully automate the assignment and tracking of numbers. Assign and track telephone numbers, establish relationships between numbers, customers, and classes of service.
