Philippines' Globe Telecom Streamlines with IBM + NSN

Globe Telecom, a leading telecommunications company in the Philippines with 26 million mobile subscribers, has implemented a new Service Delivery Platform, delivered by IBM and Nokia Siemens Networks, to streamline its business operations, generate new revenue and reduce the time it takes to bring new services to market. The Service Delivery Platform is helping Globe to reduce its time to market for new services by more than 80 percent. The solution removes many of the traditional cost and complexity inhibitors by providing a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) platform that incorporates open IT and Telecom industry standards, including Next Generation Operational Support Systems (NGOSS) to integrate its existing systems.

As part of the contract IBM is delivering WebSphere, Rational and Tivoli software using SOA aligned with NGOSS standards. Globe will also utilize IBM's Telecom Operations Content Pack as the key accelerator to streamline the integration and automation of key processes, while providing significant reuse and lower total cost of ownership associated with the launch and delivery of new services.
