Redefining Network Management!

Currently, carriers face several challenges - plethora of technologies, convergence of networks and the ever-increasing demand for complex services - and seek for an all-in-one solution to replace existing management silos efficiently and cost-effectively.

The uni|MS™ Unified Management Suite is a state-of-the-art solution for supervising and managing modern telecommunication networks. It is a carrier-class multi-technology Element, Network and Service Management platform supporting off-the- shelf all Intracom Telecom wireless and wireline products. Third-party network elements can be managed through element mediation drivers that can be developed as a service.

uni|MS™ unifies the management of access and transport networks, improving user experience, lowering OpEx and improving efficiency. Integrated multi-domain Fault & Performance management and Service Provisioning are carried out through a powerful and intuitive user interface that personalizes user workspace and adapts to user needs.
