Do you often only realize that a link has a problem when it suffers a complete outage?
Network capacity upgrades are needed on an ongoing basis to meet growing demand and support deployment of new services. Operators need to decide in a timely manner which links need more capacity, instead of congestion issues arising that affects customer quality of service, leading to complaints and churn. Conversely, this also allows operators to avoid over-investing in network capacity that may never be needed, wasting capital.
How HAS can help: A smart list of links that require capacity upgrades, by time.
Operators need to be able to correlate faults from different parts of the network to determine if a service or customer issue is related to (or due to) their microwave backhaul. Before HAS, this was manual and extremely time consuming, and a high level of transport network expertise was required to debug and correlate faults with RAN/Core/IP domains

What if you could identify issues before they cause a link outage? Network operations personnel are often faced with a deluge of complex alarms from multiple management systems. Operators again rely on customer complaints to identify outages, or compensate with time-consuming routine manual monitoring of links to identify problems. HAS employs proactive trend analysis to anticipate and prevent outages, resulting in less downtime.
How HAS can help: A ‘Focus List’ of links not meeting a predetermined availability target due to inadequate path design, antenna misalignment, or some other underlying issue.
HAS’ predictive algorithms continuously analyze the network, identifying problems before impacts occur, improving network reliability and performance, and lowering OPEX. To find out more download our Information Sheet.
