Achieve a federated view of your network and service resources

Unlock the potential of your network

Customers want real digital experiences everywhere. As you automate and transform to meet these needs, having a unified, dynamic inventory is the first step in enabling you to compete and thrive in a changing landscape.

Knowing what assets you have across new and existing networks is a huge challenge.

CSPs of all sizes are facing similar challenges and opportunities to modernization their inventory systems. Competition from hyperscalers creates new demands on automation and market consolidation, while the evolution from 4G to 5G generates complexity to launch new services. The expansion of the Fiber-to-the-x (FTTx) access market is also driving new demands for bandwidth and more accurate troubleshooting.
