Hewlett Packard Enterprise has been favored by Vodafone Idea Ltd to partner for its next-generation operations support systems (OSS) platform for Vodafone’s Service & Network Operations Center (SNOC).
The telecom company’s SNOC monitors and controls its vast network and service offerings to over 334 million subscribers. The company further plans to streamline its service assurance processes with the HPE Intelligent Assurance solution and expand the SNOC’s existing robotic process automation (RPA) journey as it transforms into a digital service provider.
Vodafone Idea’s SNOC, located in Pune, remotely monitors 192,000 2G sites and around 372,000 broadband (3G+4G) sites across 22 circles.
HPE’s next-generation OSS solution will enable Vodafone Idea’s business to solve challenges by offering innovative solutions that help to address them from a revenue, cost and efficiency basis. Vodafone Idea will further automate operations by introducing HPE Intelligent Assurance providing it with a powerful platform to transform vast amounts of telecommunications network data into actionable insight, thus paving the way towards zero touch operations and self-driven networks.
“We are now honored to be selected as Vodafone Idea’s partner for their new consolidated OSS platform, which includes our machine learning-based HPE Intelligent Assurance solution,” said Phillip Mottram, Vice President and Global Lead, Communications and Media Solutions, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “At HPE, our focus is to help Vodafone Idea automate their operations with solutions that are based on the latest innovations, in particular, intent-based service orchestration and machine learning-based service assurance. This is key for them to be able to manage the unprecedented levels of volume, dynamism, and complexity that come with new hybrid cloud environments.”
Vishant Vora, CTO, Vodafone Idea Limited, commented, “This partnership with HPE is yet another step towards bringing artificial intelligence solutions in our network. We look forward to working with HPE to roll-out our next generation SNOC platform which is designed to be reliable and scalable for the digital and 5G era.”
Vodafone Idea is undergoing a digital transformation journey and the agility provided by the new HPE OSS solutions will enable the company to prepare for new demands on the network – in terms of capacity, performance, and higher expectations from consumers.
