The iNOP Concept
iNOP (Intelligent Network Optimization)
iNOP is a unique, state of the art network optimization solution addressing both cost savings and network enhancement challenges of network operators.
iNOP is an E2E service for telecom carriers integrating cutting edge mathematical optimization algorithms complemented with complex engineering know-how, financial measures and an End-to-End service approach.
Organically developing networks always have significant deficiencies in their structure because:
(1) Networks become denser as they develop over time (2) New radio technologies are deployed which require different planning methods and higher bandwidth (3) Network operators under time and cost pressure simply do not have either the time or budget to periodically re-optimize the transmission network.
The result is complex, less-than-optimal transmission network. That eventually means the physical and logical complexity of the network exceeds a limit where traditional engineering can no longer cope with the challenges.
There are so many interdependent or mutually exclusive financial and technical requirements of network development, that the Operator loses the chance to re-plan and re-organize its network to the theoretical peak level. A somewhat better network is achievable but it is always far from optimal performance and cost structure.
iNOP can undertake various optimization aspects, utilizing a range of priorities and encompasses an arbitrarily weighted combination of requirements fitting the Operator’s corporate needs at any stage of network lifecycle. iNOP optimization process incorporates numerous technical and financial achievements such as:
Simplified network topology
Reduced operating expenditures and frequency usage fee
Increased transmission capacity
Lower cost per megabit
Higher network availability
Less overloaded HUB sites with optimized structure
Optimized capital expenditures and TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)
iNOP is risk-free for operators as it provides an outstandingly high return on investment and short payback time.
An iNOP project is a rewarding investment for any operator. As besides the technical network enhancements, financial benefits are also provided.
Increased transmission capacity, higher network availability and other technical improvements come hand in hand with streamlined operating costs and better TCO.
The investments necessary to implement the new network plan promise a rapid return, often as short as 6-12 months.
