MetaSolv Software, Inc., a global leader in comprehensive operational support system solutions for next-generation communications service providers, today announced that BT is implementing MetaSolvâ€™s Provisioning 5 to enable IP Service delivery. MetaSolvâ€™s Provisioning 5 will facilitate the automated provisioning of BTâ€™s MPLS-based IP-VPN services and network elements as part of BTâ€™s Vserve initiative.
The key objective of BTâ€™s Vserve program is to simplify and automate its entire VPN provisioning process, reducing time to revenue and lowering operational costs. As a major part of this initiative, BT is replacing a legacy order management system with MetaSolvâ€™s Provisioning 5 to manage the entire provisioning process for provider edge (PE) and customer edge (CE) routers, MPLS IP-VPN services, and quality of service (QoS). Provisioning 5 is already deployed at BT to manage a number of services and technologies.
â€œBT chose MetaSolvâ€™s Provisioning 5 due to its ability to rapidly model and implement BTâ€™s IP VPN service processes globally,â€ said Simon Hollins who heads up the Vserve team in BT Global Services. â€œWe are delivering an improved customer experience by dramatically reducing service delivery cycle times. Provisioning 5 contributes to this by distinguishing itself as being a proven carrier-grade platform with the reliability and performance necessary to meet our existing and planned provisioning volumes.â€
Provisioning 5, formerly known as MetaSolv OMS, provides critical back-office provisioning management functions to orchestrate the essential tasks required to deliver a service to a customer. The solution framework enables easy integration of multiple systems, both legacy and commercial products, and simplifies the design of new services and bundles. Provisioning 5 has a full J2EE (JEE) meta-data driven architecture enabling it to scale and handle the demands of the largest carriers and provide the flexibility required to manage highly complex service processes essential for next-generation service delivery.
