LogicaCMG has extended its product portfolio, with the signing of a strategic partnership with network resource planning software specialist VPIsystems. The new agreement will allow LogicaCMG to offer VPIsystems OnePlan solutions to its carrier customers in the region.

OnePlan handles design and planning of carrier grade networks at all layers, for IP-based and legacy solutions. Logica believes that the solution will prove popular with fast growing telecoms operators in the Middle East that want to rapidly roll out new services and infrastructure while still remaining in control of planning processes.

Dr Mohsen Mohseninia, managing director, Telecom and Media Logica CMG Middle East and Africa said: "With the liberalization of the telecom market in the region, LogicaCMG and its international partners can play a key role in providing value add service to the growing industry.

"Our next-generation Operation Support System offerings can greatly enhance the regions telecommunication operators ability to manage network CAPEX by designing, procuring and rolling out new networks based on demand forecast and proven business cases," he added.

"OnePlan was the ideal network planning solution for LogicaCMG's needs, given its already proven results with global Tier-1 carriers and breadth of planning and design capabilities" said John Collins, vice president of business development at VPIsystems. "We have combined the leading network planning product with the innovation and experience of a global systems integrator. Together, we are helping carriers to better realise their business goals and stay competitive in the marketplace."
