Inventory and Network Synchronization

You can’t automate what you can’t see

Build your automation strategy on a solid inventory foundation

Inventory systems are a critical component of a network provider’s operations. But, more often than not, the information they contain is static, populated when a network device was first commissioned into the network, and not updated since. And there are many systems, each containing only a narrow view of inventory that is specific to a vendor or technology layer.

But when customers call wanting a new service, or a trouble resolved, there’s no time to waste. You need to rely on inventory data that gives you a complete view and lets you move fast.

The Blue Planet Inventory and Network Synchronization (INS) solution gives you the single source of truth you need. With clear visualization of all your physical network and logical service inventory, you can respond to customer requests substantially more quickly. How quickly?
