MetaSolv Extends Leadership Position in Service Activation With the Introduction of Activation 5

    Nice, France (ots/PRNewswire) - TELEMANAGEMENT WORLD - MetaSolv Software, Inc., a global leader in comprehensive service fulfillment solutions for next-generation communications service providers, today announced the introduction of Activation 5, MetaSolv's next generation solution for multi-service activation across all technology domains. This new release raises the bar in multi-service activation and provides a unique path forward for innovative service providers through the integration of MetaSolv's complementary industry-leading activation capabilities: MetaSolv ASAP -- a comprehensive, multi-technology, multi-vendor activation platform, and MetaSolv IP Service Activator -- an expert activation engine uniquely focused on delivering QoS enabled, IP-based services.

    "The ability to activate all service domains from VoIP to complex IP VPNs is a key requirement for progressive global operators," says Larry Goldman, Partner, OSS Observer. "MetaSolv has clearly demonstrated this unique ability within its global customer base."

    "Operators today seek activation solutions that support both existing and next generation services as well as providing a cost effective, seamless transition," said David Sharpley, senior vice president, marketing and product management, MetaSolv. "With the underpinnings of strong IP support critical for next generation services, MetaSolv's Activation 5 is uniquely positioned to support increasingly bundled service activation in volume and in a rapid, cost effective manner."

    Activation 5 manages the complete activation process, providing necessary transactional integrity across the entire end-to-end activation process. Such activation control also enables the orchestration of existing activation engines as part of the activation process, thereby allowing service providers to leverage existing activation investments whenever possible. This approach, already applied in multiple engagements, insulates and abstracts the activation processing details for multi-service requests from upstream systems and simplifies the overall OSS architecture.

    In conjunction with Activation 5, MetaSolv is also releasing Service Studio, a powerful graphical tool that enables the rapid design and deployment of services. Developed in cooperation with key customers, Service Studio puts the service modeling and assembly in the hands of service experts without requiring detailed IT skills, thus empowering the user to easily and rapidly assemble new and innovative services and service bundles.

    MetaSolv's Activation 5 also sets a new industry benchmark for Tier 1 performance and scalability. Working our large, tier one, global service provider customers, MetaSolv has modeled and conducted realistic product benchmarks demonstrating a throughput rate of 100 orders/second with each order containing an average of seven independent network updates. This translates to an activation capability of over 8.5 million orders per day, far exceeding the requirements of even the largest, most demanding operator environment.

    Additional functionality in Activation 5 includes:

    - Single, consistent, upstream integration OSS/J interface for multi-service activation requests across all technologies, as well as enhanced support for rapid upstream integration using the new Service Request Translator (SRT) component. This enables operators to simplify OSS integration and reduce cost of ownership.

    - Continued build out of a productized, supported and enhanced cartridge library with strong emphasis on key next generation services including VoIP, Video (IP-TV), IP-VPN, Mobile and Broadband. With these extensions, MetaSolv currently has over 110 contemporary, multi-vendor productized network element cartridges available to facilitate reduced deployment time, faster time to market, and lower cost of ownership.

    - Extended configuration management capability through the introduction of the IP Configuration Template Module (CTM), an easy-to-use XML template-based configuration tool, which provides quick and easy extensibility and supports the application of customer-defined configurations on one or more target devices.

    - Ease of forward migration, with Activation 5 designed to be upwardly compatible with current versions of both MetaSolv ASAP and MetaSolv IP Service Activator, enabling a smooth transition to the advanced functionality available in this new release.

    "MetaSolv has long been seen as the leader in service activation with proven credentials among tier one operators. Activation 5 further extends our market and thought leadership position. As operators look to drive new revenue and standardize OSS systems, MetaSolv's Activation 5 provides the single activation platform necessary for service providers to rapidly launch and cost-effectively deliver next-generation service offerings," concluded Sharpley.

    MetaSolv's multi-vendor, multi-service activation capabilities have been deployed by more than 75 operators in over 26 countries for an array of services including VoIP, IP-VPN, Mobile, Broadband, Voice and Data. MetaSolv's solutions are market-proven and deployed for high volume performance and scalability. MetaSolv currently provisions numerous services over multiple network technologies for approximately 200 million subscribers globally. MetaSolv ranked number 1 in Service Activation in Heavy Reading's 2005 OSS Market Perception Study.
