Huawei and Aircom International have jointly announced a partnership to drive product interoperability and system integration.
The co-operation between Huawei and Aircom will secure future OSS (operation support system) and interoperability of network management products, ensuring that only minimal customisation and testing will be required by network operators implementing a Huawei/Aircom solution.
This integration technology partnership is focused on network performance and configuration management. Aircom network planning tools Aptima and DataSafe will be integrated with Huawei¡¯s wireless solutions via its iManager M2000 management system.
iManager M2000 is the unified platform that provides centralised management to all wireless technologies of Huawei, including GSM, UMTS, CDMA, WiMAX, LTE and more.
"As the leader in mobile networks, Huawei¡¯s robust investment in LTE research and development has accelerated the commercialization of LTE technology. It is essential that Aircom technology integrates with Huawei solutions as seamlessly as possible, to guarantee a positive user experience for network operators," says Ricky Watts, chief technology officer at Aircom International. "Our close working relationship with Huawei will ensure Aircom can develop and verify all technology interfaces, regardless of version."
"The partnership presents clear advantages for both parties, enhancing our mutual customers' satisfaction," says Zheng Yelai, vice-president of Huawei's Wireless Product Line. "Huawei is proven to be committed to supporting customers worldwide with high-quality products and services that will evolve seamlessly to the technology of the future and help customers enhance its competitiveness. Through this partnership both companies will mutually benefit from respective customer footprints and global scale."
