Cable & Wireless Implements MetaSolv for OSS Upgrade

Cable & Wireless has selected MetaSolv for its IP and next-generation OSS transformation. The multi-million dollar agreement provides Cable & Wireless with an integrated next-generation platform for activation, provisioning and configuration management across all service domains. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The agreement includes MetaSolv Activation 5, a next generation activation platform that provides activation across all service domains, and MetaSolv Provisioning 5, a next generation back office provisioning platform that manages internal network build-outs and orchestrates the essential tasks required to deliver ordered services to customers.

The transaction also includes MetaSolv Configuration Management - a newly launched product that offers unique advantages when pre-integrated with MetaSolv Activation 5. MetaSolv Configuration Management is a next generation management platform that centralizes and optimizes network control operations for multi-vendor networks by implementing automated, proactive and consistent configuration management practices.

Cable & Wireless has already deployed the first phase of the project. This phase standardizes two large and disparate MPLS-based IP networks on MetaSolv's next-generation activation platform.

This enterprise-wide deployment has enabled Cable & Wireless to quickly derive significant synergies from their recent acquisition of a large European IP VPN service provider and provides the operator with a market-leading and common platform for the future growth of next-generation services.
