Clarity solution to accelerate Vodafone Egypt’s network capability and capacity plans
Sydney, Australia, 7 December 2010 – Powerlan/Omnix today announced that Vodafone Egypt is deploying Clarity’s Infrastructure Management solution.
As the country’s largest mobile operator, Vodafone Egypt is looking to Clarity to improve its operational productivity and maximise the return on assets. To this end, Clarity’s Infrastructure Management solution will automate and coordinate key finance, network and service management processes. This will enable Vodafone Egypt to dramatically transform their network vendor selection processes, track rollout against supplier performance agreements and see a clear overview of asset location, availability and capacity.
Vodafone Egypt expects the Infrastructure Management solution to yield significant productivity gains by streamlining deployment processes and accountability, as well as providing clear visibility around logistical vendor management that will reduce both up front capital and on-going operational costs.
“Above all, we want to deliver a rewarding experience to our 28 million customers. Regularly increasing and refreshing our network capacity is key to achieving this, as is rolling out new technologies such as HSPA+”, said Mohamed Henna, Chief Technology Officer, Vodafone Egypt & Yasser Rashwan, Access Network Director, Vodafone Egypt. “Clarity’s solution will ensure that we are managing our network infrastructure in the most efficient way possible – helping us to deliver the capacity and capabilities that are essential to our customers.”
“Mobile operators like Vodafone Egypt can significantly drive down costs by having end-to-end transparency of their network and the thousands of sites where high-value assets are deployed,” said Jon Newbery, Chief Executive Officer at Clarity. “With Infrastructure Management, Vodafone Egypt can accurately monitor vendor deployment performance, as well as managing their customer network proactively to achieve the most efficient levels of capacity – in essence, identifying and solving problems before they occur, in a highly cost efficient manner.”
