Wave7 Adds Network Management Suite for EPON and GPON

Wave7 Optics released its W7 Management Suite, a standards-based element management system supporting its Trident7 Optical Access Platform EPON / GPON product line. The W7 Management Suite gives Wave7 customers "complete OAM&P" support for evolving EPON and GPON-based services, including POTS and VOIP telephony, various data services and RF or IP video.

In the area of service connection, Wave7 Optics has created a provisioning mediation system for flow through service provisioning of Wave7 Optics equipment, as well as video head-end controllers and voice switches.

The W7 Management Suite also offers an optional triple-play order entry and accounts receivable package. This flow-through provisioning interface has been extended to allow subscriber account number and address information to automatically flow from the billing system to the customer premises devices. This design supports open-billing system interfaces and currently interoperates with numerous third party billing systems.

Customer care features include a web application that provides subscriber service status views for customer service representatives, which is beneficial in open access networks with multiple service providers. Additional network reporting and notification tools are also part of this complete suite of applications for the W7 Management Suite.
