Forsk announces that it has signed an OSSii agreement with Ericsson.
The OSSii – Operations Support Systems interoperability initiative was initiated to enable OSS interoperability between different OSS vendor’s equipment; it allows independent software vendors (ISVs) like Forsk to interface their products with equipment suppliers through a comprehensive framework from specifications to integration testing.
Through this agreement, Forsk will get access to technical specifications for the development and maintenance of interfaces between Atoll and Ericsson OSS systems. Such interfaces allow operators to integrate KPIs and UE traces more easily into the Atoll Live module and to further streamline their radio planning and optimisation processes.
The Atoll Live module breaks the traditional barrier between prediction-based and measurement-based planning and optimisation tools. Atoll Live module allows incorporating KPIs and UE/MDT traces in order to combine predictions with real-world information in a number of Atoll features. By combining measurement-based and prediction-based approaches, Atoll provides operators with extended accuracy and a broad scope of use.
Forsk is an independent software company providing operators and vendors with wireless network design and optimisation products. Atoll, Forsk’s flagship product, is the market-leading wireless network planning and optimisation software on the market; it allows operators to streamline planning and optimisation activities by combining predictions and live network data.
With more than 9000 active licenses installed with 500+ customers in 140 countries, Atoll has become the industry standard for wireless network design and optimisation.
