CNI partners with market-leading GE VAR, Smallworld Nordic

We’re excited to announce our latest partnership with Smallworld Nordic, a leading Scandinavian provider of IT solutions with offices across Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. As a value-added reseller (VAR) of GE Digital, their expertise lies in delivering market-leading Smallworld Network Inventory and GIS solutions across industries, such as utility, telecom, district heating, and streetlight.

The partnership reflects the close, complementary ties that both companies and software solutions have. Combined, Smallworld Network Inventory and CROSS provide Communication Service Providers (CSPs) with a spatially-based, cross-technology, end-to-end view of the entire network.

This comprehensive and integrated view combines the fully-connected Inside and Outside Plant of the physical network with the logical view of the network to deliver a seamlessly integrated inventory solution. Additional information from external inventory (resource and service), network, and business systems, such as NMS, EMS, OSS, and BSS, can be further integrated into the CROSS data model as well.

Bridging domains with CROSS and Smallworld Network Inventory

By bridging information across OSS/BSS domains within a single place, CSPs are provided with instant, detailed, and contextualized insights about their network, helping support and enhance key operational, financial, and business activities, such as:

  • Service assurance - Quickly identify the likely cause of service faults and identify affected services with Root Cause Analysis and Service Impact Analysis, correlating service faults and alarms and collapsing them to common providers.
  • Network planning - Confidently plan and design future networks, automatically generating task and material lists while factoring in available existing resources and their capacity.
  • Network design - Accelerate network design by automatically creating designs for any FTTx networks and creating connectivity and enforcing data integrity. Show current and proposed future networks through workflow with integrated validation.
  • Network data visualization - Illuminate hidden data and visualize the network with Google-like map overlays, multi-layer schematics, and powerful reporting tools that can be consumed by field teams, customers, and engineering teams.
  • Service provisioning and fulfillment - Provision services over optimal network paths, factoring in elements such as available capacity, physical constraints defined by SLAs, and more.
  • Revenue assurance - Assess the profitability of services and network resources (including leased inventory) by linking resources with operational costs and bridging revenue from service contracts with service inventory data.
