Two of the core features of the IMS tool are that it can be used for network management planning and managing changes.
The IMS Operations Support System (OSS) application can be utilised by network planners to both plan and design a new network before it is built within the existing one.
Employees using IMS for telecom network change management will see each attribute within the system, such as the location, equipment, card, shelf and connection, has its own status to identify in which phase the attribute in the delivery or change process it is.
In addition, IMS Network Panning can be used in conjunction with IMS Workflow, to allow for a seamless experience.
However, if you don’t wish to use the workflow function of the Inventory & Management System, you can still link it to another such system or order management solution you may be using, which makes the tool highly adaptable to the needs of any business.
To help planning engineers to manage their networks in IMS, our telecoms specialists have added a whole host of useful tools, including:
- Automatic trail engineering
- Available routes from the node
- Copy routing and duplicate circuits
- Equipment templates
- Copy equipment
- Ring and network overviews
