Spring is also the time of house cleaning and tidying, so use the energy to reorganize all those documents that distract you from the important things. After you throw away everything unnecessary, our Documents module is the perfect repository to store all your roaming partner-related documents. With this release, we’ve added the option to upload not only documents in common text formats, but also pictures. If you get things like network diagrams or screenshots in jpg, png or most other file formats, just upload them to your repository.
Cleanup is always about focusing on relevant things, and in a rapidly changing world, things can quickly go from important to irrelevant. Working on our customers’ roaming footprints always shows many inactive or discontinued networks. In the January release, we already included 2G-3G closure dates in the Networks module. In a second step, we have now added more information about the network status. You can find them on the Connections and Networks tab of the Networks module and in the connection details, too. Please note that the corresponding columns are hidden by default, but you can easily add them via the Columns drop-down menu.
Another new feature in Networks requested by customers is the more flexible definition of time periods for the Connection Report. Since the previous maximum was one year, you can now define larger report periods for earlier years or specific time periods. In addition to MCC/MNC, we have also added a new MGT CC/NDC column to the Connections and Networks tables. And finally, we’ve added a column for frequencies, but this is where the RoamsysNext customer community comes in. Even though frequencies are an essential part of the IR.21 documents, the list may not be complete. If you discover any missing frequencies, please let us know and we will add them.
To speed up service openings in Rollouts, it’s always convenient to have your partner contacts just a click away, so we’ve connected the already existing Contacts module. Within the rollout details, you will now find a new Contacts tab right beside the well-known Documents tab at the top right.
