About Sint Maarten
St. Maarten is located in the Caribbean at the northern end of the Lesser Antilles. The island was first settled by the Arawaks and then discovered by Christopher Columbus on behalf of Spain in 1493. Columbus sighted the island on November 11th, the holy day of St. Martin of Tours, and so named the island after him. In 1648 St. Maarten was peacefully divided between Holland and France, and today is the smallest landmass in the world to be shared by two sovereign nations. In 1954, Sint Maarten and several other Dutch Caribbean possessions became part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands as the Netherlands Antilles. In a 2000 referendum, the citizens of Sint Maarten voted to become a self-governing country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The change in status became effective in October of 2010 with the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles.
2operate will exhibit at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, 27 February-2 March 2017. Meet us there for a chat about our visions for simplifying network operations. Find us at our booth in Hall 6, stand no. 6C50 (look for the “Denmark” pavilion). We look forward to meet you there!

The new whitepaper from 2operate is published at TM Forum’s website and talks about the benefit of making engineering knowledge explicit and thereby enabling computer-based incident diagnostics. Research shows that despite having access to the right data, the human brain is often biased when making complex decisions and diagnostics. Algorithms based on statistical methods – even with access to only a subset of data – tends to perform both more accurately and faster.
