The solution and recent enhancements at Telekom Romania

By December 18, 2014December 23rd, 2014Services, Smallworld, Telecomunicații

Telekom Romania has been using Smallworld Physical Network Inventory platform since 2008, when PNI in version 4.1, delivered and implemented by Globema, replaced the legacy Smallworld-based ModelIT solution. After the completion of successful upgrade of Romtelecom’s Network Inventory solution to the latest 4.3 version in 2013, Globema began the development of a set of enhancements, aimed to provide additional reporting functionality, usability improvement and integration with the logical & service layer inventory system.

The scope of recently delivered enhancements includes:

1. Report pack

Globema developed and delivered tools to create Telekom Romania’s-specific MS Excel reports which provide detailed network information in the original format.

2. Usability improvements

Globema developed enhancements to Smallworld PNI that:

  • Speed up object attribute value selection
  • Speed up fiber connectivity
  • Speed up manhole internals definition
  • Loading PRM Routes (from xls file)

3. Logical Inventory integration

Globema delivered WebService API to communicate with the logical layer inventory system. After the enhancement, Smallworld provides API for logical-to-physical layer integration:

  • Describes technical details of the given service
  • Lists services utilizing given physical resource
