Telecom Personal Paraguay Uses Westell for Intelligent Site Management

Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTL), a global leader of intelligent site, in-building wireless, and outside plant solutions, has been selected by Telecom Personal Paraguay for comprehensive site management of their base stations throughout Paraguay. The company is among the top three leading wireless providers in Paraguay.

Telecom Personal Paraguay is using the Kentrox Optima Management System® and Remote RMM-1400 for generator management and fuel monitoring of both legacy and new generators. The power management solution enables the company to remotely monitor each generator’s fuel consumption to understand when refilling is necessary. When refills do occur, Optima provides details on the number of liters supplied to ensure the fuel invoice matches the actual amount.

The Kentrox intelligent site management solution by Westell is also providing Telecom Personal Paraguay the ability to remotely start and stop the generator as part of automated generator maintenance cycling. Alarms and reports are provided to automatically notify the company of potential issues. Environmental monitoring is provided, including monitoring site temperature and humidity, to ensure site and equipment safety and longevity.

“Adding the Kentrox intelligent site management solution from Westell to Telecom Personal Paraguay’s remote sites has provided better control and reduced costs,” explained Anibal Rendon, Operations Manager of Telecom Personal Paraguay. “We have experienced a reduction in fuel theft and better control over fuel consumption in each site’s generators. We have also reduced operating costs by monitoring environmental conditions using the solution and utilizing equipment only when necessary. NOC personnel now have the information they need to make decisions easier because more data is available. By adding comprehensive site management to our sites, we’ve experienced the improved availability and reliability that our customer’s demand.”

“We are pleased that Telecom Personal Paraguay has chosen the Kentrox intelligent site management solution for their cell site management requirements,” said Ricardo Diaz, Westell Vice President of Sales for Caribbean and Latin America. “Our products combined with services from our partner, Planex, have made it a successful installation for Telecom Personal Paraguay, and we look forward to helping them experience savings and network reliability for many years.”

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
