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.

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.”
