for Planning

Knowing where and when to expand coverage, add capacity and rollout new services is a challenging task for service providers, especially if you’re trying to conserve CAPEX and OPEX.  These decisions are often hampered by manually collected network data that is inaccurate and incomplete.

NetFusion Applications for Planning provides end-to-end visualization and analysis of network infrastructure and its performance, so you can eliminate the guesswork and make data-driven decisions regarding:

  • Where to expand and upgrade network infrastructure
  • Where to reduce use of expensive leased capacity
  • How to optimize traffic routes and save cost
  • How to reduce shared risks and avoid operational surprise
With NetFusion Applications for Planning you get:
  • Accurate network inventory feed into planning systems – multi-layer, multi-vendor and multi-domain
  • Intuitive, fully searchable, web-based UI providing a full picture of layers from service down to fiber routes, through the IP and optical layers
  • Call-to-action dashboard with policy based KPIs, allowing planning to focus on areas that need their attention
  • In-depth analysis of network diversity and vulnerability to one or more failures
  • Rich set of APIs to feed other tools and OSS ecosystem
  • Traffic utilization trend analysis to allow proactive deployment of capacity just-in-time
  • Continuous verification of planning policies to ensure your network quality does not degrade over time
  • Management of shared risks (SRLG) – from analysis of fiber route proximity up to the service layer
  • Optimization of optical and MPLS connections based on your goals
  • Simulation of impact of traffic growth and changes to the network
With NetFusion Applications for Planning you can:
  • Know with certainty where every port, connection, device, route, is located, whether it is in use, and how it is performing
  • Identify, decommission or repurpose unused nodes and ports to save costs (power, footprint & maintenance)
  • Leverage what-if simulations to accurately forecast and plan for future growth scenarios
  • Assure maximum service quality and uptime through diversity and shared-risk analyses
  • Avoid investment-overspend related to strategic network expansions, mergers and migrations
