Meet the team,
our key members of staff

CROSS Network Intelligence (CNI) is a young software company dedicated to providing innovative and disruptive solutions to the Telecommunications and Utilities market. Our team, based in Ostrava and Prague, Czech Republic, and Cambridge, United Kingdom, brings a wealth of domain and technical expertise, as well as over 100 years of combined experience supporting global, industry-leading Telecoms.

The company’s roots began implementing GE Smallworld products and building out their functionality based on the requirements of the customer, namely expanding the Physical Inventory to include additional functionality, such as Root Cause and Service Impact Analysis. This effort ultimately led to the creation of CROSS, a next-generational Operational Support System (OSS) based on a new and simplified approach to managing network inventory.

Funding raised in 2017 from start-up accelerators Bolt and UP21 allowed the CNI team to further enhance CROSS, grow the team, and expand our presence into new international markets.

    Transform your inventory. Get started with CROSS.

    CROSS works with standard data loaders, which means it’s easy to begin data consolidation. It can incorporate data of variable quality, eliminating the need for costly data cleansing projects. The data can be enhanced during operation, ensuring rapid ROI. CROSS is based on industry-standard database models and is fully browser-based, resulting in a low-cost infrastructure and rapid configuration.

    Start small, grow big

    CROSS can be implemented with a low-risk, methodical approach that can be run in parallel with existing systems. The gradual introduction into existing IT architectures avoids a big-bang and allows for full validation at each step. Existing data sources can remain as data masters during migration, ensuring that there are no abrupt changes. The result is true consolidation – reducing disparate OSS data sources into a single solution that will scale dynamically with your business.
