What kind of equipment does VC4’s telecom network planning and inventory system support?
VC4-IMS is a multiple network / vendor inventory and not restricted to one type of network. The software is completely vendor and network platform independent.
Examples include, but are not limited to: MPLS/IP, WDM/OTN, Fiber, GPON, Ethernet, Mobile Core, Backhaul and RAN (2G, 3G, 4G, 5G), SDH/SONET, Microwave, Broadcasting, Subsea cable, WIFI, VSAT, ATM, Voice, DCN and Synchronisation.
Users with appropriate permissions can model equipment with the correct slots, sub-slots, cards and ports. There’s no need for a new IMS software version for a new network or network vendor.
