Netcracker Technology’s OSS suite was chosen and deployed to support the long-term growth strategy of Group Vivendi Africa (GVA). GVA is a newly formed affiliate of the French-based multinational conglomerate Vivendi with the goal to deploy and operate a fiber network across Africa. Netcracker’s OSS will be used as a consolidated solution to identify service availability across GVA’s operating countries and then fulfill and provision those services to customers.
Netcracker’s highly productized, out-of-the-box applications enabled the OSS suite to be deployed in seven months, meeting GVA’s demand to leverage an integrated service fulfillment and inventory solution that could satisfy its long-term growth expectations, as well as short-term objectives.
Netcracker’s OSS is comprised of Service Orchestration, Service Catalog, Service Inventory, Service Activation, Resource Inventory, Outside Plant and Discovery & Reconciliation components.
The scalability of the OSS suite will complement GVA as it expands and delivers new services to a wider customer base. The solution will also enable accurate service fulfillment and provisioning and help GVA meet critical metrics associated with keeping time-to-activate low and reducing order fallout rates.
