HP Expands Telecom Consulting Services

HP has expanded its set of telecom consulting services and hired more consultants.

The HP Solution Consulting Services portfolio (HP SCS) has enhanced its core methodology with expertise gained in recent transformation projects. Also, the HP SCS services portfolio is now organized into specific capabilities that can be used to address many different solution needs. HP said this provides telecom operators with the flexibility to select, combine and customize capabilities to meet key business objectives.

HP also announced a recent customer win at Magyar Telekom, Hungary's largest CSP. HP SCS consultants focused on a redesign of the way services are provisioned, as well as interface standardization, application integration and overall project management.

Magyar Telekom serves both consumers and businesses with fixed, mobile and broadband services. Previously, each of its three business units handled service activation and provisioning separately. After consultation with Magyar Telekom, HP developed a single, consolidated platform, called SPA (service provisioning and activation), that uses HP Service Activator to automate key processes and workflows. The solution is now in operation for new IP services, and Magyar Telekom plans to extend it to the rest of its services portfolio.
