Applying a Method to Your System for Quality Network Data at Every Stage of Deployment

Network management systems struggle with managing inaccurate and incomplete data. Leveraging the network management system with a systematic approach to get real-time data of the physical network through a method of collaboration and applications instead helps to solve the three primary problems associated with the status quo of network management:

  1. Inaccurate data
  2. Lag time between open for sale and marketing
  3. Siloed information
What does it take to make this change?

The approach to real-time data management has had dramatic implications for faster network deployment, service activation, reparation, and better reporting. However, what did it cost to change? Not surprisingly, there were hard and soft costs. Although it seems self-evident that accurate and real-time data can provide the best operational and strategic value, it comes at the cost of letting go of familiar methods and integration into existing environments.
