Operations support system (OSS) for power utilities
Keep costs low while improving performance in highly complex environments
Nokia Operations Support System (OSS) for power utilities makes it easy to manage the interdependencies among the applications, communications services and network technologies used to enable smart grids. It can help you overcome limitations in human resources and in-house expertise by using automation to overcome component failures and ensure consistently reliable and secure communications services.
Our OSS reduces the complexity and cost involved in managing the wired and wireless communications technologies and services you need for smart grid applications. It can help you cope with an explosion of new physical endpoints, network elements, applications, IP addresses and virtual networks. And it can ensure that your networks will carry traffic to support multiple applications, including SCADA, metering, video and voice.
Our OSS integrates components from many of our third-party supplier partners. We back it with OSS consulting, design, operations optimization, deployment and integration services. Options include a build, operate and transfer (BOT) approach or outsourced network management services that leverage the Nokia Global Network Operations Center (GNOC). Our experts can partner with you to develop the best OSS strategy based on business sense and your specific requirements.
