Network management definitely falls into the category of MERA’s key competence domains. The company’s first involvement into software R&D for a network management solution happened in 1997 and represented a carrier-grade GSM radio access network (RAN) operation, administration and maintenance (OAM) solution of a major telecom equipment manufacturer. Since then, MERA has tremendously expanded its network management competence and worked on various network management solutions for 3G and 4G RAN as well as multi-vendor wireline and enterprise networks. As a matter of fact, MERA followed the evolution and mastered all existing network management approaches (OAM&P Services Providers Model, TMN Model (ITU-T M.3000), TOM and eTOM Models (ITU-T M.3050, TMForum) as well as underlying network management technologies/protocols.
