PLANO, TEXAS, November 8, 2005 â€“ MetaSolv Software, Inc., a global leader in comprehensive operational support system solutions for next-generation communications service providers, today announced that Novemberâ€™s TeleManagement World Conference in Dallas will showcase the Catalyst work project being supported by BellSouth, EMBRATEL, BEA Systems, MetaSolv Software, Cognizant Technology Solutions, Pantero, Juniper Networks, and Sun Microsystems.
This expert solution addresses the process for providing consumers with Voice over IP (VoIP) services with immediate service activation. The Catalyst solution scope is architected using the TMFâ€™s eTOM process framework, including the Fulfillment processes. The TMFâ€™s NGOSS Architecture was used as a conceptual systems framework.
The Catalyst system demonstrates a layered, service-oriented architecture (SOA) solution that enables consumer customers to order Internet Protocol (IP) services such as VoIP over the web from the comforts of home or a mobile laptop with Internet access. Through TMF standards-driven integration and interoperability, as well as rapid flow-through service fulfillment and resource provisioning processes, consumers can establish new services modify existing services, or add additional services through an easy to use web-based portal. Supporting interoperability standards and technologies providing the foundation of the solution include OSS/J, SIP, XML, and Java (J2EE).
Additionally, simulated interfaces to external systems create both a realistic set of legacy integration requirements and provide extendable system architecture for building additional SOA-wrapped integration layer in the future, including interfaces for SID-based data transformation and validation, Telephone Number management including LNP, E911, Billing, and Revenue Assurance.
