MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS — South Korea CSP LG U+ has successfully upgraded its Oracle Communications Network Resource Management solution with Oracle's Unified Inventory Management 7.1.2 and Network Integrity 7.1.
LG U+ expanded the scope of the Oracle solution to manage, in a convergent and integrated fashion, its fixed and mobile network. The solution enables the carrier to efficiently manage the access and core components of its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network while also improving visibility into the configuration of its fixed network, Oracle said.
With the deployment, LG U+ focused on improving network equipment data integrity in terms of monitoring, managing and resolving network failures in its 4G LTE network. As a result, the company says it improved its network configuration inventory accuracy rate to 99.9 percent and significantly reduced its failure-prevention and management costs.
“With the world’s first nationwide LTE network deployment, 43 percent of LG U+ subscribers are using LTE, which is the largest share of LTE subscribers among the communications service providers in the world. LG U+ adopted Oracle Communications Network Resource Management solution because it helped provide us with the reliable operations and services we needed, as well as supported the LTE network deployment, which enabled us to quickly improve network reliability," said Park Song-chul, vice president, NW technology unit, LG U+. “LG U+ is working to bring its customers a more advanced network and improved component quality, combined with relevant systems, to maintain a competitive edge in this highly regulated market."
