With 2017 just around the corner, we take a look back on 2016 at SysMech. It has undoubtedly been a busy 12 months, with new customers, new version releases and plenty of travel across Europe, Africa and Asia. In this blog we recall out top 5 successes this year and look ahead to the next 12 months

1Telefonica selects Zen for performance management

In October we were extremely proud to announce that the UK’s second largest operator, Telefonica had selected Zen for its end-to-end network performance management. In a recent press release, Richard Benjamins, Network Performance Manager at Telefonica said of Zen;

“Zen is the first system that gives us a single, consolidated view of our network landscape, bringing in new data from multiple sources. From a future proof perspective, it’s effectively making the network stronger, better and faster for new and existing customers.”

Zen will look at the performance of the network across all vendors and technologies in order to identify and resolve areas of poor performance quickly. Read the full press release on our blog.

2 – We become ISO 9001 certified

Earlier this year, SysMech achieved ISO 9001 certification. This achievement is a testament to our ability to provide consistent high quality products and services to the telecommunications industry. Setting out the criteria of a good quality management system, the ISO 9001 standard ensures a strong customer focus, a highly motivated management team, and processes which drive continual improvement.

3 – Vodafone Ireland shared their Zen story at 5G World

At this year’s 5G World we were pleased to be joined my Mick Mullen, Optimisation Manager at Vodafone Ireland. Presenting alongside our Head of Product, Mark Slinger, he shared the Vodafone Ireland journey with Zen, from 4G radio performance management to full end-to-end operational intelligence.

Another key achievement in 2016 was the launch of Zen 6.

A number of key customers are already benefiting from the Zen 6 upgrade, with more scheduled in the new year. Download the Zen overview brochure to read more about all the new features of Zen 6.
