Today's small cell management systems face many challenges. These include the large number of small cell devices, the wide array of small cell deployment scenarios, and advanced interference management requirements. The Cisco Universal Small Cell RAN Management System (USC RMS) addresses these issues, helping you cut costs and improve coverage.
The Cisco USC RMS provides complete set of small cell management functions including activation, configuration, firmware management, fault management, performance management, care and troubleshooting, and status monitoring.
Cisco USC RMS is a standards-based (3GPP, TR-069, TR-196), field proven solution managing some of the world's largest small cell networks. All protocols for interactions with the small cells support highly secure connections and provide redundancy and failover protection.
The system offers zero-touch provisioning by automation of key activation and management tasks, along with advanced group management capabilities.This also includes comprehensive Location Verification methods and CLI tools for reporting and to assist in bulk operations.
These allow for an easy and flexible integration with the operator provisioning chain and Certificate Signing Request (CSR) tools.
Cisco USC RMS provides best-in-class heartbeat status monitoring. It also offers complete and proven support for the self-optimizing network (SON).
The architecture simultaneously covers multiple deployment scenarios, from residential to enterprise to public implementations. It allows for cost- optimized single server configuration for small network deployments, and distributed server architecture for medium to large network deployments.
