OSS and Inventory Consolidation

Consolidate any number of fragmented OSS and inventory catalogs into CROSS to obtain a unified view.

Retain key OSS data but ensure it is stored in a common master platform so that data silos can be retired, maintenance overhead reduced, and vendor lock-in overcome.

Data Consolidation

Single inventory for merging and future networks

Following M&A and when planning new networks, CROSS as a consolidation platform helps eliminate spreadsheet dependency and provides:

  • Data consistency and accuracy across teams
  • Efficient data sharing, workflow management & process integration using APIs
  • Extendable inventory data model that captures new devices and technology as the network grows

Trusted by major operators
across the world:

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

Integrate inventory into automated workflows and service provisioning

Access to network inventory data is key for the realization of zero-touch service provisioning and automation. CROSS enables other business processes to seamlessly obtain essential OSS information to support workflows and automated processes.

  • Accelerate service deployment and time-to-revenue
  • Enhance and automate OSS/BSS workflows
  • Improve efficiency of network and service operations
  • Accelerate time-to-repair

Import data from external OSS, expose it and make it accessible with Open APIs

Import data from legacy systems and access it with Open APIs, enabling inventory data to be accessible to other systems and business processes, and combined with data from other sources. Derive new insights and ensure a single source of truth.

  • Seamlessly sync data two-way
  • Improve incomplete or inaccurate data
  • Expose hidden data and business insights
  • Retire or maintain systems as needed
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • One stunningly simple idea that helps to overcome one of OSS’ biggest challenges – data quality.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
