Consolidate network inventory and asset data into a single source of truth for better operations and service delivery.
Networks span multiple generations of technology, creating a complex mix of resources and assets. Crucial data can be scattered in silos.
This inventory and asset data is critical for understanding your network, capabilities, and requirements. It includes physical, logical, virtual, and service resources – the elements that drive performance and service delivery.
If you cannot clearly visualize and understand these assets, you can’t enable friction-free operations. You can’t plan efficiently, build out new infrastructure, or deliver services at the speed customers demand.
VC4-IMS is a complete, intelligent inventory management system that brings data together, eliminates silos and provides a consolidated record of your network assets – physical, virtual, logical, and service – giving you clarity and supporting automation and transformation.
