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.

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. [Read more…]

“There is no question that IP services are fast becoming a primary source of revenue for the communications industry,” said Chris Swan, SVP Sales, Marketing and Alliances for Syndesis. “The question today is which CSPs will effectively clear the hurdles to long-term IP success and, as a result, go on to dominate the IP services markets. Carriers must strive to provide an always-on environment, where customers can access whatever they need, whenever and wherever they need it, by plugging into a network or community of services. Powered by Syndesis, this vision is quickly turning into a reality.”
“Communications service providersâ€™ business over the next five years depends on their cost-effective growth of IP-based services such as VoIP, IPTV, mobile content and IP-VPN,” said Larry Goldman, founder and analyst at OSS Observer. “Automated configuration and service fulfillment is an essential step for CSPs to scale the service deployments to generate significant new revenue.”
Syndesisâ€™ IP capabilities and success will be highlighted in a Light Reading webinar on Wednesday, November 30th at 12pm ET.
