Problem

Traditional inventory is fragmented, unreliable, and inaccurate. It results in costly inefficiencies that make the transition to faster automated networks harder than they need to be.

Process

Consolidate inventory catalogs, link assets across domains and bridge OSS with services and BSS. Keep and integrate with CROSS what is needed, safely retire the rest, and reduce OPEX.

Solution

An operational inventory platform with built-in assurance, provisioning, and design modules to support transformation projects and key OSS/BSS processes.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • One stunningly simple idea that helps to overcome one of OSS’ biggest challenges – data quality.
  • 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.
  • 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 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.
  • 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.

Integrated. Accurate. Actionable.

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

Surrounding this data with service tools and an Open API 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.

Inventory redefined for autonomous Fiber and 5G networks

Integrate multi-domain, multi-vendor inventory into a single data model and link resources and assets with services across the network stack – 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.

Integrate inventory with external systems and workflows

Using Connectors and Open APIs, CROSS bridges and integrates data across your network’s IT and OSS/BSS architecture, including from sources such as:

Integrate and automate BSS workflows

CROSS offers full integration with BSS workflow tools. This allows complete automation with sales and faster customer delivery. Services can easily be designed and matched with the appropriate resources and then activated through orchestration aligned with the necessary assets from your inventory.

Safely "turn off" what is no longer needed

CROSS as an OSS consolidation platform provides a clear path for legacy OSS to be gradually and gracefully decommissioned.

Data migrations can be temporary or permanent for as long as needed, with the frequency tailored to meet your needs.

Our low-risk phased implementation helps avoid a "big bang" and ensures operations continue running smoothly while introducing CROSS.

Optimize OSS/BSS workflows

Fully-aligned with the TM Forum eTOM framework, CROSS has built-in assurance and provisioning 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.

Skip tedious data cleansing prior to using CROSS and work with data of variable quality in its existing state.

Data can be ranked and tagged based on quality, completeness, and custom rules, giving your users a clear path toward improving data accuracy.
