India-based telecom analytics services provider Subex has won a multi-million-dollar contract with Optus, to implement its ROC Network Asset Management offering.

As part of the deal, Subex’s ROC Network Asset Management will enable Optus to control  its existing and new network investments through a network efficiency framework. “This implementation will further help Optus to protect their network investments, improve utilisation visibility and provide better financial controls,” said Subex.

The firm’s ROC Network Asset Management tool is a telco asset lifecycle management service, which provides a framework and a suite of controls to manage network capex more efficiently. It also features standardized processes for managing and optimizing network assets.

“This win allows us to increase our footprint in the Australian market and for our ROC Network Asset Management product,” added Subex CEO Vinod Kumar. “Moreover, the partnership will also play a larger role in the industry by providing guiding principles for cost management for global operators who are looking to undergo a network upgrade program.”

An Optus spokesperson said the telco had designed a Network Assurance program to ensure clear visibility across the complete lifecycle of the program. “In line with this, we were looking for a collaborative partnership to implement an asset lifecycle management system. Subex was selected for this deployment basis due to their domain expertise and successful deployment at other global customers,” the spokesperson said.
