Dish Network Corporation has selected NEXSYS-ONE for end-to-end, cloud-based network deployment software solutions to manage Dish’s nationwide 5G network build.
In a press release, Dish said “NEXSYS-ONE’s unique platform supports Dish’s network deployment with speed and agility, allowing for seamless integration of project, inventory and financial management.”
Dish said the software has modules that support project management, procurement, asset management, vendor compliance, colocation, workforce management, documentation, quality control and more.
Wireless contractors and suppliers will be anxious to see if the software will assist in making their project management tasks easier in assisting Dish with their deployment.
According to NEXSY-ONE, their software modules are scalable and work on desktops as well as mobile apps.
Excel sheet tracking could be history
Their promotional material states they understand the detrimental impact of situations where there are multiple Excel sheets and trackers being ambiguously and independently maintained or multi-vendor scenarios requiring multiple reporting and tracking systems.
NEXSYS-ONE says their software applications can avoid those problems.
The company’s website’s testimonials do not have any U.S.-based projects.
Dish currently uses Avetta for onboarding and safety compliance. The NEXSYS-ONE Safety-One app, according to company literature, is an advanced management platform that supports organizations and their third party vendors to better-mange the safety of their workforce through health, safety, environment and quality risk management.
NEXSYS-ONE’s roots with Nokia mesh with Dish
The company, established as Lemcon, began operations in 2003 in Sweden with a module for 3G network deployment and NEXSY-ONE entered the U.S. market in 2019 and opened its customer support center in Dallas this year.
However, in the past, over 200 networks were deployed with Lemcon’s involvement and their software was the foundation of their deployment services across all continents.
Lemcon had worked globally with Nokia and it’s likely Nokia assisted in promoting NEXSYS-ONE’s software capabilities after Nokia was chosen by Dish last September to provide their cloud-native, 5G standalone Core software.
The deal followed months of joint testing as Nokia and Dish proved their respective “any cloud” capabilities in multiple cloud environments, along with Nokia’s ability to integrate and deliver a fully cloud-native, containerized, end-to-end solution.
”We are proud to partner with Dish and to be part of their 5G journey,” said Dave Gater, vice president, NEXSYS-ONE. “It’s exciting to be able to offer solutions that help facilitate the buildout of the United States’ most innovative, greenfield 5G network.”
