Amena Selects Agilent OSS Business Intelligence Solutions

9/30/2004 - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) announced that Spain's national global carrier, Amena, mobile operator of the Auna Group, has selected Agilent OSS business intelligence solutions to monitor and measure the quality of service (QoS) provided by interconnect operators. The system will enable Amena to maximize its interconnect revenue and meet regulatory requirements for interconnect service quality. Amena also extended its Agilent roaming management system to ensure the quality of its GPRS roaming services. The Agilent solutions will enable Amena to resolve problems faster, increase and document QoS and significantly improve customer service for subscribers and roamers.

"Ensuring a positive customer experience is the foundation of our corporate mission," said Esther Morales, responsible for Amena's Network Engineering Department. "While we maintain the highest quality for our voice and data services, we cannot be certain that our interconnect partners are providing the same level of service. With Agilent OSS solutions, we can more effectively plan and manage those relationships to ensure the traffic entering and exiting our network is of the highest standard and that service performance is maintained along the entire route to our customers."

"As the fastest-growing mobile carrier in Spain, Amena continues to lead the way in delivering new levels of service quality to both its subscribers and interconnect partners," said Tom Walls, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Telecommunication Systems Division. "Agilent's business intelligence solutions will enable Amena to derive and measure key performance indicators necessary for interconnect, network operations, quality of service, finance and other teams to support business-critical decisions."

Amena purchased the Agilent OSS Data Management Component (DMC) and Data Mining Toolkit (DMT) to provide interconnect traffic and QoS analytics, and upgraded its GSM Agilent OSS Roaming Management System (RMS) to manage GPRS services.
