UA Suite to Provide Increased Visibility of Customer Experience, Service Quality in Mobile Operator's Next Generation Applications

Tektronix, Inc. , a leading worldwide provider of communications network management and diagnostics solutions, announced that Orange Romania has selected the Beamer and Orion solutions from its industry-leading Unified Assurance suite to aid in the operator's network transformation efforts.

"Having used GeoProbe, we are confident in our ability to enhance the level of service our customers have come to expect."

France Telecom Group is midway through its New Experience in Telecom (NExT) initiative, a three-year program to introduce subscribers to a world of new, innovative services. With the implementation of Tektronix' Unified Assurance suite, Orange Romania's network team has consistent and interchangeable visibility into network, service and customer activity system- wide using industry standard Key Performance Indicators. Additionally, Unified Assurance suite's historical and real-time indicators efficiently and effectively allow the network team to correct problems as they occur.
