TMC names Polystar a 2020 Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award Winner

Virtual NOC powered by Elisa Automate Recognized for Exceptional Innovation

Stockholm, Sweden, 15 July 2020

Polystar, an Elisa company announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has awarded the Virtual NOC solution powered by Elisa Automate, a 2020 Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award.

Service quality has now become a key differentiator for Mobile Network Operators (MNOs). As a result, they must continuously monitor, optimise and enhance service quality to ensure that people obtain the experiences they demand and have come to expect. To achieve this, MNOs must move from traditional, network-centric operations model to a new, service operations model.

Polystar and Elisa Automate solve this challenge with a solution that enables MNOs to introduce the service operations centre. It also enables implementation of a zero-touch network operations centre (NOC) through automation of traditional NOC tasks and network optimisation. This allows MNOs to deliver and maintain superior service quality to their customers.

Virtual NOC automates detection, problem management and correction processes, eliminating human intervention for zero-touch operations. The solution is live in the network of Elisa, a leading Finnish MNO. As a result, Elisa has reduced customer impacting incidents by more than 70% and time to solve issues by 80%. Automation capabilities from Polystar’s analytics solutions deliver further enhancements, enabling Elisa to maximise customer satisfaction and build differentiation.
