Flomatik Network Services is pleased to announce its partnership with Swedish OSS specialists, Netadmin Systems.

With 14 years of experience in the fibre OSS market, providing services for more than 75 customers worldwide, Netadmin’s software solution supports and simplifies growth for the next generation of full fibre networks. Flomatik has a proven track-record supporting major UK operators, such as Virgin Media, CityFibre and TalkTalk, as well as regional service providers and AltNets, like WightFibre, to bring the latest access innovations to the UK.

Strategically, the partnership will support Netadmin’s growth within the buoyant UK market, where fiber investments are increasing rapidly and spawning many new providers. Combining Flomatik’s own consulting, architecture, planning and rollout expertise with Netadmin’s network management system, Netadmin Nine, CSPs can assure those fibre investments and more quickly achieve scale, whether operating on a Wholesale or Retail provider basis or both.

The collaboration brings distinct-yet-complementary areas of expertise too. At the planning, design and rollout stage, Flomatik’s innovative toolchain delivers the most informed, cost-effective build compared to traditional network planning, with rule-based algorithms that remove the risk of human error. Network design is faster and more efficient.

To leverage this rich information, Flomatik is integrating with the Netadmin Nine system, advancing automation so that operators can more effectively deliver services from the outset. The automatic provisioning and service fulfilment of Netadmin Nine allows operators to scale-up, while minimising the need for increased manpower, keeping service levels high and accelerating the ‘order to cash’ process.

Netadmin Nine can be integrated with multiple vendors, multiple network technologies, and third-party CRM or billing and management systems.

Flomatik CEO, Ben Allwright said “It’s exciting to be working with the experts in network management. Netadmin’s experience in Sweden, where FttH penetration is already a European-leading 70%, offers real insights for UK providers. With their solution and innovation focus, we felt that our two companies have much in common and that this partnership will enable us to solve even more challenges for our clients as they embark on the momentous journey to a full fibre future. By developing effective integration between our services, automation and Netadmin Nine, we aim to benefit our clients with end-to-end thinking that brings efficient deployment and lifetime operating benefits. As UK FttH availability grows from its current low base of 3%, we’ll be working with Netadmin to establish class-leading, future proof Nextgen networks for all.”

Discussions are underway with various CSPs with the first joint projects expected to start in Summer 2019.
