"With this next generation of our popular Omnix software, Andrew is
first to offer mobile operators a J2EE (Java) platform that provides so

vice president-Europe, Andrew Network Solutions Group. "Omnix XSP will
deliver a powerful suite of management functions unparalleled by other
infrastructure or workflow management systems."

TeleManagement Forum's eTOM (enhanced Telecoms Operations Map)

Omnix is a workflow and infrastructure management system specifically
designed for mobile network operators. It provides process and change
management automation using project-based workflows that track every
step in the project lifecycle. Omnix enables key business information
and performance indicators to be presented to different types of users
based on filtered views. For example, project managers will want to see
all aspects of the project from the plan through key project status
indicators, while the financial people will want to see the project
budget, costs, and spend rate. Benefits include shortened time for
deployment of new sites, increased productivity, cost savings on site
and infrastructure, and improved asset tracking and inventory management.
Andrew Network Solutions, one of Andrew's five product groups, supports
the entire network lifecycle with wireless network design, optimization,
management, and location solutions for customers.
