Single platform for 360° operational inventory

CROSS consolidates fragmented inventory into a configurable, web-based inventory platform.

As a single source of truth about the network, CROSS builds a new inventory data model that bridges inventory with services, the network, external BSS and NMS, and more.

Built-in modules empower users to optimize key OSS processes, including network planning and design, service assurance, and data quality improvement.

As the network’s all-encompassing inventory foundation, CROSS provides teams, systems, and workflows with one simple and accurate place to answer questions about what's really in the network.

By ensuring your inventory is integrated and accessible, CROSS can help optimize current and future operations, unlock new cost-cutting efficiencies, and act as your data bridge for future projects.

Trusted by major operators
across the world:

  • T Mobile
  • Benestra
  • GlobalConnect
  • Nexera
  • O2
  • CEZ
  • TET
  • BNET
  • AFR-IX

Problem

Fragmented inventory across legacy systems and unreliable spreadsheets results in higher OPEX and costly human errors, poor data quality, and vendor lock-in that inhibits growth.

Process

Consolidate existing inventory, connect all data across domains in a new common data model, iteratively improve its quality, and make it accessible to external systems and workflows.

Solution

A single inventory platform for every inventory-dependent process and project. Simplify operations, reduce OPEX, and expose hidden data to understand everything in your network.

  • CROSS integrates all current information about the equipment, its location and free capacity in one database. It allowed us to dramatically shorten offer preparation time for large VPN networks. We can calculate very accurately our cost of the proposed solution, and create alternatives to match the customer’s budget.
  • The product feature that blew me away was the first I’ve seen that allows significant inter-relationship of data (yet in a simple data model), but still copes with poor data quality.
  • One stunningly simple idea that helps to overcome one of OSS’ biggest challenges – data quality.
  • CROSS enabled us to control whether lease lines are still being used for paid services or whether they are still financially viable. We have been able to find unused or unprofitable circuits and save about 5% of annual Opex.
  • By deploying CROSS together with UMS we have shortened identifying a network outage from tens of minutes to minutes, and finding customers impacted by the outage from hours to minutes. That enabled us to significantly improve the quality of our services.
  • CROSS allows us to store data with a varying level of detail. It does not impact proper functioning of RCA, SIA, Opex assurance, Availability check or network visualization in a map. Its system for data quality management - Data Ranking - allows us to identify the data with inadequate quality and improve it as needed.
  • The BSS/OSS solution by Enxoo and CROSS will enable NEXERA to respond to customer demands quickly and with the highest quality. Great level of automation of the solution, flexibility of the platform as well as in-depth telco knowledge and experience of Enxoo and CROSS teams encouraged us to select these partners.
  • When preparing planned outages, it used to take us a couple of days to identify all affected customers. CROSS helped us reduce that time to a few minutes.

Integrated. Accessible. Accurate.

CROSS builds a single network inventory, integrating data from any network system and the network itself.

Surrounding this data with service tools and a library of probes and connectors allows for CROSS to improve data quality, expose hidden data, reduce OPEX, and improve operational efficiency.

As a configurable, web-based platform for digital transformation, CROSS helps operators enhance their key OSS/BSS processes and 5G/Fiber network rollout.

 

Single Pane of Glass for Network Inventory

Integrate multi-domain, multi-vendor OSS into a single data model and link resources, assets, and devices with services across the network stack – covering the physical, logical, virtual, and service.

The configurable platform combines a geographic view of network assets with a fully-connected topological model of all network layers supporting all query, view, design, and documentation functions in a web client.

 

Future-proof your network and avoid vendor lock-in diagram

Seamlessly bridge inventory with upstream systems and workflows

A library of probes and connectors enable CROSS to bridge and integrate data across your network and OSS/BSS architecture, covering:

Automate OSS/BSS workflows with seamless data exchange

Integrate CROSS inventory with BSS workflow tools to enable complete automation with sales and faster service delivery. Service dependency analysis and capacity management features enable services to be designed and matched with the appropriate resources.

Safely "turn off" what is no longer needed

Avoid vendor lock-in and safely decommission legacy OSS and spreadsheets with CROSS as a consolidation platform.

Existing systems can remain data master for as long as needed and data migrations can be temporary or permanent.

Our low-risk phased delivery avoids a risky "big bang" and ensures operations run smoothly while introducing CROSS.

Single Source of Truth to support the OSS lifecycle

Fully-aligned with the TM Forum eTOM framework, CROSS has built-in Planning and Assurance modules to support the entire OSS process lifecycle, covering key Customer and Network Service workflows such as:

Your data isn’t perfect. It doesn’t have to be.

The CROSS Integration Methodology (CIM) provides a proven, iterative approach to OSS consolidation and data quality improvement.

Work with data of variable quality in its existing state and identify gaps and consistencies using data quality tagging rules.

With accurate and accessible inventory, give your teams confidence in their data and the convenience of having it in just one place.
