- infraSTAT helps you put the innumerable data points generated by your network to efficient use
- infraSTAT filters through data points to give you only the ones necessary to manage your network pro-actively
- infraSTAT keeps you better informed, helps you make on-time decisions, and uncovers newer insights across Passive Operations
- infraSTAT optimises daily operations and keeps you in-sync with your long term goals through analyses and reports
Mr. Arun Sarma, VP (Marketing), explains more about the concept behind infraSTAT in the latest TowerXchange journal
TowerXchange: What is infraSTAT‘s role in the telecom tower industry?
Arun: infraSTAT has evolved over the last three years from a real time status reporting and field force governance system to become a comprehensive passive operations management system for telecom towers.
TowerXchange: How does your solution empower field teams to gather data on fuel and maintenance of towers?
Arun: We equip the field force and subcontractors with real time data, be that automatic scheduling of fueling or a PM technician getting details of the equipment and spare parts they need to resolve any given alert.
TowerXchange: Our readers always want to know how proven your solution is in Africa?
Arun: We‘ve been working with NSN in Africa for almost three years. After our successful pilot, we signed a pan-Africa contract with NSN in April 2011, and commenced deployment in Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya in June 2011, later adding two more geographies.
We‘ve deployed infraSTAT with Africa Towers in five geographies to date: Madagascar, Kenya, Rwanda, Chad and DRC.
TowerXchange: When analysing cell site performance efficiency, why is it important to combine data from different sources?
Arun: We gather all the data on passive infrastructure, juxtapose that with other data to create a common,
crossorganisation platform to collect, correlate, crosspollinate and analyse data on a real time, daily and historical basis.
This enables us to undertake variance analysis, comparing actual performance
to expectation, which for example can enable the site owner to evaluate RoI in hybrid energy solutions.
