BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Vallent™ Corporation (formerly WatchMark-Comnitel and Metrica®) announced that Ericsson, a leading telecom supplier, has selected Vallent’s Metrica Performance Manager to monitor the new Brasil Telecom GSM and GPRS infrastructure and to manage the network quality underpinning the services delivered to all subscribers.
Vallent’s Metrica Performance Manager will be used not only to monitor and manage the quality of services delivered over the new GSM and GPRS network when it is complete, but will also be used to guide the deployment of the new infrastructure and help avoid issues such as congestion. Furthermore, Metrica Performance Manager will monitor the performance of the NOC as it aims to meet a set of pre-defined Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
“Brasil Telecom has always played an important part in developing Brazil’s network infrastructure and introducing new services to the region,” said Marise de Sá De Luca, Director of System Integration Services for Ericsson Brazil. “We believe that Vallent’s world-class OSS products combined with our local knowledge and network infrastructure expertise will help Brasil Telecom introduce advanced, quality mobile services to the country.”
“Our goal is to deliver affordable and premium quality mobile services with innovative and useful features to all our customers,” said Wellington Francisco P de Araujo, OSS Project Director for Brasil Telecom. “By deploying a totally new network infrastructure and OSS solution, I believe we can build a highly robust wireless network and deliver cost-effective and high-quality mobile services to our customers.”
“This is an exciting time for Brasil Telecom as they begin their new mobile business,” said Mark Greatrex, senior vice-president and general manager of the Performance Management Division of Vallent Corporation. “The deal also strengthens our long-term relationship with Ericsson Brasil who have been key in winning and implementing this project. We look forward to working with them and Brasil Telecom to address the increasing number of opportunities for GSM and GPRS services in the region.”
