ScheduALL deploys at Tata Communications

ScheduALL announced the deployment of its Enterprise Resource Management (ERM) software LINK solution at Tata Communications’ video Master Control Room (MRC) in Pune, India.

The installation resulted in the transformation of a formerly manual booking process to a new level of automation– including bandwidth capacity management, conflict prevention, transmission validation and automated transmission path selection.

The Tata Communications global network includes one of the largest and most sophisticated video networks in the world, with connectivity to over 300 media hotspots across 125 cities globally. All Occasional Usage (OU) transmission bookings will now pass through a centralized system powered by ScheduALL’s LINK, capabilities combined with real-time reporting for costs, revenue, personnel and fiber inventory utilization.

Richard Craig-McFeely, business development director, media services, Tata Communications says, “With the global expansion of our network, it was crucial to fully automate our fiber bookings and make our processes as efficient as possible. ScheduALL’s LINK system gave us instant inventory and conflict checking which supports our more efficient booking processes, allowing us to meet the complex service needs of our customers.”

The LINK solution implemented at Tata Communications leverages ScheduALL’ s innovative interoperability platform ScheduALL Chorus™, providing a two-way interface to its Nimbra Vision network management system from Net Insight. The technology built into Chorus allows for “schedule-once” efficiency, automating the entire end-to-end process from booking to transmission.

Tata Communications recently completed the installation of ScheduAll’s Enterprise Resource Management (ERM) software.
