Real-time Network Inventory Management

Real-time Network Inventory Management: Governing Network Resources for Telecommunications in a Live Environment

Comarch Real-time Network Inventory Management is a comprehensive solution that stores full information about physical, logical, and virtual network resources. It is a common, central, and permanent access inventory that captures all the details of a complex IT and telecommunications environment with advanced microservices technology underneath.

Our OSS inventory handling solution makes it easy to manage a catalog of network resources for multi-vendor and multi-domain networks. It manages RAN, transmission, core, and fixed domains, IT infrastructure, and data center inventory for SDN/NFV and hybrid networks, supporting on-premises and off-site telecommunications operations and enabling easy adoption of new technologies.

Thanks to artificial intelligence, this network inventory tool supports end-to-end network management while enabling automation within each dynamic virtual domain based on immediately available resources. Static physical and logical elements are handled by conventional Comarch Network Inventory Management software, while the Real-time Network Inventory Management system oversees dynamic virtual assets and integrates data from physical and virtual network elements.

Network inventory data can also be accessed via the OSS mobile app (iOS and Android devices), primarily used by technicians and engineers performing tasks at physical locations. Efficient task handling in a dynamic 5G environment requires more support and data access for teams working in the field. The Comarch OSS Mobile App allows technicians to access and process network inventory data and report on their field activities while on location. A specialist can view the physical, virtual, and logical structure of network elements during an audit of the site or when carrying out hardware modifications. The application provides the ability to quickly add active and passive devices on location, and provides access to the knowledge base with devices in the most convenient way, using the augmented reality function.

Benefits of Comarch Real-time Network Inventory Management:

Comprehensive network view based on multiple vendors and technologies

Gain a consistent view of your network without information redundancy, with a solution that aims to represent hardware and connectivity in several layers, with information about technology in the general layer.

Better use of existing resources

Modern inventory management of multi-domain networks is the basis for network investments in telecommunications. It allows you to efficiently use existing resources and plan new ones that are profitable from a business point of view.

Lower network operating costs

Having one consistent view of your network across all domains, technologies, vendors, and tiers allows your operator to increase business efficiency and reduce operating costs. Inventory is the foundation of many business processes in a telecommunications company, including the network operations center, engineering and planning departments, procurement, and business partners.

Integration with the OSS umbrella

Resource & Network Inventory is the heart of Comarch OSS. It provides data and information for all other modules, such as Planning and Design, Configuration Management, Fault Management, Service Quality Management, Customer Experience Management, and Business Process Management. All dedicated modules use the same inventory base, which leads to efficient data processing and, thanks to the elimination of many dedicated interfaces, reduces operating costs.

Efficient resource provision

Comarch Real-time Network Inventory provides system support for maintaining the network with topological correlations and allows you to recognize and solve the problem of root causes of failure in the most effective way.


Thanks to the future-oriented architecture, Comarch OSS is already integrated with the NFV/SDN framework in the areas of inventory, planning, configuration, and assurance. This means that Comarch OSS is an umbrella OSS for both older architectures and new, extended, and dynamic–virtualized.

Mobile access

Secure and immediate access to network inventory data from your mobile device streamlines the way you conduct field surveys and update physical location information.

Automation methods based on artificial intelligence and machine learning

The use of AI/ML to improve the consistency and correctness of Comarch Real-time Network Inventory Management data eliminates a number of burdensome tasks performed by experts and accelerates the process of data cleaning, which is the basis for the provision of services in the dynamic environment of modern telecommunications services.

Comarch AI-Powered Real-time Network Inventory Management – A Continuous Process of Improving the Consistency and Correctness of Data

The use of automation of the data binding process obtained from systematic network audits opens the way to wide automation of many processes in telecommunications and IT companies. Automation is always based on data quality because automatic systems lack the knowledge and intuition of a specialist performing manual work. At the same time, such manual work is time-consuming and requires verification of the actual state.

Our network inventory tool offers advanced artificial intelligence-based solutions in two areas:

  • Holistic overview and autonomous network management
    Analyzes nomenclature in management systems and rules for links between domains, technologies, and supplier systems, and connects methods for communication service providers (CSP). Detects disruptions in physical and virtual connections, replicating broken connections in the network's logical architecture to improve overall network functionality.
  • Self-verification and improvement of network data
    Improves manual entries in accordance with company rules and conventions. In an automatic process, the system controls the consistency and quality of entries and independently makes content changes using a set of priorities, ensuring the quality of entries throughout the inventory database.

Benefits of Using Comarch AI-Powered Real-time Network Inventory Management Based on the Use of AI/ML Methods:

Constant improvement of network data accuracy

The product continuously verifies data and detects inconsistencies and interrupted service delivery, enabling automation of the service delivery process. As a result, services are delivered faster and with more accuracy.

Verifying information using natural data

Analyzes the naming conventions used by providers of various domains and technologies, and supports the process of strategic planning for network expansion, thereby assisting architects and eliminating mistakes.

Consistency in internal CSP nomenclature

The system supports the strategic planning process by analyzing how to implement new physical and virtual elements in the network. Based on dynamically changing priorities, this enables flexible ad hoc planning for troubleshooting failures.

Process policies based on inventory data quality

Combining both methods introduces the possibility of dynamic changes in priorities and guidelines for network planning and maintenance in the form of policies that can be applied depending on the current situation in the network.
