Auto-discovery and Reconciliation

Comarch Network Auto-discovery & Reconciliation provides a complete, comprehensive and up to date insight into the multi-vendor, multi-domain network, enabling effective network management.

The system supports reconciliation of RAN, transport, core, access and IT domains, and thanks to integration with Network Inventory Management provides one, comprehensive and integrated view of the live state of the network.

The main modules are:

Reconciliation Cycles

This functionality manages the reconciliation cycles of all connected domains, reports current status of ongoing and finalized runs, and presents warnings and errors occurring during the cycle. Thanks to built-in business rules, an operation can always rely on data which are the basis for planning and configuration of the network.

Discrepancy Handling

This functionality compares the current state of the network kept in Network Inventory Management, with the network view reconciled in the last cycle. The interactive discrepancy view presents unauthorized discrepancies and allows them to be manipulated.

Plans Acceptance

This functionality compares the planned state of the network kept in Network Inventory Management with the network view reconciled in the last cycle. The Interactive Plans Acceptance view allows manipulation of recognized discrepancies. The mechanism also allows auto acceptance rules to be set.

The product is integrated with Comarch OSS Mediation, which allows data to be fetched from OMC and network elements directly, offering compatibility with a wide range of standard certified interfaces available in the industry. The product is pre-integrated with Comarch Network Inventory Management and Comarch Network Configuration Management.

 

 

Comarch Configuration Management

Comarch Network Auto-discovery and Reconciliation benefits

Comprehensive, Up to Date Network View in One System

Provides up to date insight into the multi-vendor, multi-domain network leveraging Comarch Mediation Layer.

Automation

Automates the discovery and resolution of discrepancies between the inventory data and the real network. Enables the definition of rules for discrepancy resolution, thus supporting complex scenarios when a simple network update action is not sufficient.

Reduced Time to Market

Shortens network upgrades and optimization cycles by providing almost immediate feedback from the network regarding configuration updates. The flexible network modeling mechanism and configuration templates assure extendibility for future network technologies.

Provisioning Process Simplification

Pre-integration with Comarch OSS Process Management enables a process which can include manual steps when reconciliation requires human decisions.

Improved Customer Experience

When pre-integrated with Comarch NGNP, it implements the closed-loop process: plan, upgrade, verify, re-plan, thus shortening the time needed to provide good customer experience for network-based services.

Umbrella Configuration Management – integrated with SON

Smart Plans Management plays a Policy Management role between manual and automated plans coming from SON. The system automatically recognizes conflicts between the plans and resolves them, which leads to the elimination of errors within the network provisioning process. The Reconciliation mechanism allows smart plans acceptance of manual and automated SON related changes in the network.

Reduced Costs

Thanks to the future-proof system, architecture and integration within Comarch OSS Suite, it is one more module in the Umbrella OSS concept, which leads to cost reductions due to the decommissioning of several legacy systems and their migration into One OSS.

Case Study

"Having had a very positive experience with Comarch as a partner in previous OSS transformation projects, we decided to cooperate with them again for a project that aims to rebuild our current IT landscape in the area of network performance. Monitoring the performance of a multi-vendor and multi-technology network has become very demanding and its main focus has shifted from network KPIs to customer service quality KPIs. This project enables us to fulfill a strategy of offering our customers high quality, innovative services, sooner than our competitors do."
