Network Equipment Providers

Business Case

In terms of providing the element management system, Network Equipment Providers (NEP) faces the below key challenges that are central to maintaining their competitive advantage

  1. The need to demonstrate clear value additions to their device management system to be a preferred choice of vendor for the service provider. The management functionality should extend beyond mere FCAPS functionality with rich and intuitive graphical interface.
  2. Difficulty in maintaining interoperability and compatibility across different group of product portfolio sometimes encompassing legacy equipments.
  3. Due to expectations from the service providers , few traditional NMS functionalities are being gradually incorporated at the EMS layer itself

A related internal challenge could be limited availability of development/testing resources that could hamper the extensibility or customization of their existing Element Management Solution
