Fulcrum/MDSI Webinar: Asset Lifecycle Management as a key component of a Service Providers Supply Chain
Asset Lifecycle Management, when done properly, is a critical component of an overall Supply Chain Management practice. Management Data Systems International (MDSI) and Fulcrum Technologies – developers of the CATS ALM Software solution – present best practices to allow you to manage complex supply chain and inventory management issues for both forward and reverse logistics, optimizing your CAPEX and OPEX expenditures.
Powerful, flexible, intelligent mobile scanning solutions let you scan, track, and get visibility of your assets. From there, we overlay information gathered from integrated systems including MDSi’s Acuity Solution and other financial, engineering, supply chain, OSS, or BSS applications to achieve true, real-time business intelligence to make meaningful decisions. This information can then be used for reports, dashboards, and controls to provide both insight and verifiable data to drive to strategies and corporate initiatives.
Coupled with MDSi’s logistics management services, we will present best practices, solution examples, and real-world ROI that gives you an incredible competitive and operational advantage.

Many promises are being made for real-time communication (RTC) services in the Cloud. Unfortunately, service providers are realizing that transitioning RTC services to Cloud architectures is not as simple as slideware suggests. In order to be successful, service providers must understand the myths and realities of moving RTC services to a cloud-based network.
In this webinar, Sonus will provide insights into the current state of the RTC market, where the market is headed and how Session Border Controllers (SBCs) are the key to successful RTC Cloud deployments. This will be followed with a discussion of seven common myths of transitioning RTC services to the Cloud and how Sonus counters these myths with proven cloud-optimized solutions.
Remember, when it comes to cutting-edge Cloud solutions you have a choice. Between a tested, proven real-world solution or one that may sound great, but does not really exist. So, is your current SBC vendor selling you Cloud myths? Join us for this free webinar to find out.
Consumer demand for mobile connectivity and cloud-based platforms has resulted in mobile networks transmitting more data than ever, which puts carriers in a prime spot to use analytics in order to glean insight into what is actually moving across their networks. However, growing demand for secure communications could limit that ability unless carriers and their vendor partners can come up with solutions designed to handle the challenge.
This webinar will look at current security state of mobile networks; what barriers are currently in place hindering further monetization of analytics; and how carriers and their vendor partners can bridge the gap between security and monetizing analytics in this new data- and cloud-centric world.

Cell site deployment is complex, costly and multi-staged. For RRH (Remote Radio Head) installation, there is typically an installation phase, and a completely separate turn-up phase when the BBUs (Baseband Units) are finally activated. However, a new process is emerging called BBU Emulation whereby the BBU functionality can be simulated before the installation team leaves the site and any failures can be identified and eliminated without a separate truck roll weeks later.
This webinar will introduce the fundamentals of BBU Emulation, as well as CPRI RF testing in general. And it will explain the potential savings in cost, Opex and time required for testing, close-out and deployment.
Who should attend:
Technicians, engineers, contractors and job site managers responsible for the buildout and deployment of Remote Radio Heads who need a field tool to validate that a new site has been built properly before leaving to work on another site.
What you will learn:
In this webinar, you will learn how the combination of BBU Emulation plus CPRI RF testing will save you time, money and headaches. Specifically, the content will include:
• CPRI RF basics
• BBU Emulation
• BBU Emulation Tests
• Initialization: RRH information
• CPRI link Alarms – Status Lights
• RRH Transmission
• SFP Data on RRH
• VSWR/Return Loss
• Spectrum – Uplink
• OTA LTE RF test
