Syndesis, the leader in Convergent Service Delivery Management (CSDM) solutions, is pleased to announce that BT is implementing SyndesisÂ® TrueSourceâ„¢, the most widely deployed data integrity management solution, for discovery and reconciliation across its entire 21st Century (21CN) IP-based network. Under the license agreement, Syndesis will enable auto-discovery, live discrepancy management and reconciliation to accurately track services and network assets, recover resources and enhance processes, including provisioning.
BTâ€™s 21st century network is the transformation project designed to move from a Public Switched Telephone Network to an IP system. A critical step in this initiative is the installation of Syndesis TrueSource to ensure scaleable, flow-through automated service delivery based on clean data foundations, thereby reducing the need for manual audits, cutting non-productive re-work time in provisioning cycles and reducing lengthy repair cycles. The Syndesis solution will be integrated across multiple Operational Support and Business Support Systems (OSS/BSS).
“BT chose Syndesis because of its proven ability to assure data consistency across BTâ€™s multi-vendor 21st Century Network,” said Simon Curtis, BT Project Lead. “Network Assurance and data consistency are of the utmost importance with a project as ambitious as BTâ€™s 21CN and, as such, it is imperative that only the most reliable solutions be implemented before our network roll-out. Syndesis will help BT transform the communications and entertainment experiences of its customers across the UK and provide an unrivalled service experience.”
Syndesis TrueSourceâ€™s service and asset discovery, network mediation, live discrepancy management and reconciliation enables communications service providers (CSPs) to accurately track their network assets and correct network, inventory and billing errors. This helps to eliminate production-stranded resources and ensures that customers are billed for the services, and levels of service, that they receive.
With Syndesis TrueSource as the cornerstone of data integrity management and revenue assurance processes, CSPs can:
Eliminate time-consuming manual OSS/BSS synchronization processes
– Recover lost revenue and isolate revenue leaks
– Accurately track network assets, reclaiming lost and stranded resources, and deferring capital spending
– Reduce OpEx by minimizing provisioning fallout, accelerating data loading, and enhancing troubleshooting
– Speed revenue recognition with first-time-right fulfillment
– Make accurate network data available throughout the OSS and BSS infrastructure, enabling proactive service management
Featuring inherent multi-domain intelligence and extensive off-the-shelf network equipment support, Syndesis TrueSource helps identify and correct data integrity problems for a wide range of next-generation services and technologies within large, complex, multi-vendor environments.
