VimpelCom Goes Live with the NetCracker OSS Solution to Drive Infrastructure Optimization Business Wire WALTHAM, Mass. -- June 19, 2013 VimpelCom, part of VimpelCom Ltd., and NetCracker Technology announced today that has successfully completed migration of Mobile Resource Inventory into the target enterprise-wide system. NetCracker OSS Solution ensures a single view on fixed and mobile networks. The project was delivered as part of VimpleCom’s initiative, aimed at increasing operational efficiency through consolidation of IT systems and optimization of IT infrastructure. The NetCracker solution has enabled VimpelCom to achieve the objective of such consolidation and optimization that provided for a dramatic decrease of the number of inventory systems. NetCracker’s OSS solution provides VimpelCom with an up-to-date, end-to-end view of over 500,000 interconnected equipment units located on the company’s 45,000 sites and 85,000 customer premises as well as a deep insight into the entire network topology. In addition, NetCracker OSS allows for deeper integration with the company’s other support systems. This enhanced functionality greatly increases the efficiency of VimpelCom’s fulfillment and assurance processes and reduces OpEx and operational complexity. With this implementation, NetCracker’s OSS solution is planned to be the core platform for inventory and fulfillment. “A unified network view and a single point of access to end-to-end network data have enforced both fixed and mobile network planning, enhanced mobile network coverage, and facilitated customer service monitoring. In fact, this is another example of practical results of synergy between mobile and fixed service providers that took place several years ago,” said Andrey Godunov, CIO of VimpelCom. “From fixed subscribers’ perspective, it means less expensive, easier, and faster service access. From mobile subscribers’ perspective, it directly leads to enhanced radio network coverage and mobile network availability.” “The ability to access consistent and reliable network data is critical to supporting VimpelCom’s broad range of service offerings,” said Vasily Sedunov, VP of Engineering, NetCracker. “NetCracker’s centralized inventory solution is not only enabling VimpelCom to enhance system performance, but is also generating significant cost savings. As on numerous other projects we have undertaken with VimpelCom, we are pleased to have had an opportunity to add value through our advanced BSS/OSS offerings and our deep domain expertise.” About VimpleCom VimpelCom is one of the world’s largest integrated telecommunications services operators providing voice and data services through a range of traditional and broadband mobile and fixed technologies in Russia, Italy, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Armenia, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Cambodia, Laos, Algeria, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Burundi, Zimbabwe, Central African Republic and Canada.
