Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) today announced the launch of Ericsson Adaptive Inventory 9.3, redefining inventory management agility. As operators spend more on software to speed cloud deployments, virtualize network functions and grapple with surging data traffic, Ericsson Adaptive Inventory brings the full visibility and control that operators need to advance networks. This includes autonomy to build new technologies, capabilities, web-based GUIs and applications.

Elisabetta Romano, VP Head of OSS & Service Enablement, Ericsson says: "Ericsson Adaptive Inventory builds on a powerful software solution that is deployed around the world and sees Ericsson continue to redefine inventory management with capabilities that our customers need to be successful. Access to accurate network data positions operators for better decision-making, including the ability to predict the future-state network from a combination of current and proposed network plans.  The latest tools that Ericsson Adaptive Inventory brings to market are easy use, deploy and maintain, helping operators thrive in an ever-changing environment."

Ericsson Adaptive Inventory, formerly Ericsson Granite Inventory, uses data from a broad range of available sources to offer the most complete view of a network at any given moment, including past, present and future configurations. The result is faster service rollouts, improved trouble resolution and new network efficiencies as mobile data and IP-centric service delivery becomes more fluid. It features an enhanced Unified Inventory Engine, intuitive web interface, component-driven design automation, and system extension kit. Ericsson has created a migration path to Ericsson Adaptive Inventory for existing Ericsson Granite Inventory customers.

Nik Willetts, chief digital officer, TM Forum says: "I would like to congratulate Ericsson on achieving  TM Forum Frameworx Conformance Certification.  "As network design and management becomes more complex in the face of shifting consumer needs and exciting industry advancements, commitment to a standards-based approach from vendors like Ericsson is essential to helping operators and customers around the world move at the speed of change."

To meet customer demand, operators need to continually improve the customer experience, capture new revenues and drive business efficiencies.  Ericsson helps operators become agile with a comprehensive, unified OSS/BSS software suite, and world-class consulting, systems integration and managed services capabilities.

Ericsson Adaptive Inventory will be on display in the Ericsson pavilion at TM Forum Live! June 1-4, 2015 in Nice, France.
