London, UK, OCTOBER 28, 2014: TEOCO, the leading provider of assurance, analytics and optimization solutions to communications service providers (CSPs), has announced that its DIMENSION software will be used by Huawei to provide capacity planning to one of its customers in the Middle East.
Huawei is currently working with a leading operator group in the region to plan its capacity requirements, and to improve quality of service. Huawei will use DIMENSION as part of this project, and plans to use the software in similar capacity planning projects in the future.
DIMENSION enables operators to plan their entire logical and physical network capacity across each element, from radio access to backhaul and transport core in a multi-layer manner. Network planners can design a more efficient infrastructure by identifying bottlenecks before they happen, and then test scenarios to determine how the network will cope. DIMENSION accurately models tens of thousands of network elements, across many different technologies and equipment from multiple vendors. It is a centralized system that can be accessed simultaneously by numerous network planners.
Huawei selected TEOCO’s DIMENSION software after a rigorous selection process. As the network consisted of 3 radio technologies (GSM, UMTS and LTE) and the backhaul and transport networks were a mixture of TDM and IP/ETH over microwave, leased lines and fiber, the solution needed to be able to plan for this multi-domain and multi-layered complexity.
“We needed a network capacity planning solution that can cope with the complexity that multi-technology networks create,” said Malibing, System Architect, Huawei Network Planning & Design Dept. “We also needed a planning tool that supports multiple domains, layers and equipment vendors, gives us easily readable visualizations, and is simple to configure and to use. TEOCO’s DIMENSION allows us to offer this service to our customers – and in less time than other solutions.”
“Huawei’s decision to use DIMENSION is further endorsement of its ability to cope with complex multi-technology networks”, says Daniel Ramirez, Director Planning Products.
