MetaSolv Signs Major Inventory Management Contract with Leading Operator in China


August 17, 2005, Plano, Texas – MetaSolv Software, Inc., a global leader in comprehensive service fulfillment solutions for next-generation communications service providers, today announced that one of China’s largest incumbent telecommunications service providers has selected MetaSolv to implement a complete ordering and inventory management solution to support convergent telecommunication services.

This leading operator in the world’s largest and fastest growing telecommunications market needed a world-class, flexible and high-performance inventory management solution to handle its aggressive growth plans from a wide range of existing and next-generation services. The operator currently supports millions of subscribers with a portfolio of voice and data services, including wireless, local loop, and broadband DSL.

After a competitive RFP process, the Chinese incumbent chose MetaSolv’s Objectel and OMS products as the core of its next-generation operational support system. The decision was based on MetaSolv’s industry leadership, functional capability and completeness, inherent flexibility and the ability to support its service and subscriber growth expectations.

MetaSolv has partnered with a major global systems integrator to execute the delivery and implementation, while leveraging MetaSolv’s Professional Services team for product extensions and customizations, localization, support and training.

The inventory system will be used to manage end-to-end services from the customer premise through to core network, including copper local loop, address and number management, capacity assignment and path analysis. It was critical that the single, central system be localized to support simplified Chinese language as well as support traditional voice, broadband data and wireless local loop, along with next generation technologies necessary for this growing market. The underlying flexibility will allow MetaSolv, the global systems integrator, and the service provider to maximize efficiencies while driving new revenue.

“This competitive win strengthens MetaSolv’s leadership position in inventory management worldwide and highlights our unique ability to automate the entire provisioning process for next-generation service providers” said David Sharpley, senior vice president, marketing and product management, MetaSolv. “Consistent with our globalization strategy, this win reflects our continued focus on the high-growth Asia-Pacific market in general and China in particular.”

MetaSolv’s inventory management solutions are deployed at over 70 customers worldwide in support of a variety of services including traditional voice, VoIP, VPN, IP, DSL, optical and data services across multi-vendor networks.
