Syndesis Evolves DSL Provisioning for Value-Added Broadband Services - Dynamic Provisioning Enables Service Providers to Grow Margins With Differentiated Business and Consumer Offerings

    Toronto (ots) - Syndesis, the company that brings networks to life globally, today announced Release 5.0 of its Syndesis DSL solution suite that redefines service fulfillment economics for the next generation in value-added broadband services. This latest Syndesis solution suite offers the most comprehensive set of off-the-shelf dynamic provisioning, activation and discovery capabilities and enables service providers to improve their bottom line by delivering high-margin services to business customers and the consumer marketplace.

    "Communications service providers now face shrinking margins on first generation broadband services and sharply declining revenues from traditional voice. To offset these financial pressures, providers must rapidly and profitably grow their value-added data services. Doing this requires automated processes that can manage the complexity of new service offerings and profitably scale the volume of these services to significant levels," explains Larry Goldman, Partner and Co-Founder of OSS Observer. "Having established itself as a leader in automated provisioning and activation for basic broadband services, Syndesis is well positioned to provide the additional capabilities service providers need to improve margins with value-added services."

    With Syndesis' award-winning software, leading service providers in Europe and North America are shortening time-to-market and containing costs for new, differentiated broadband services by dramatically improving service delivery automation within a wide variety of network and operations environments. Processing upwards of 10'000 service orders per hour and rolling out innovative offers to new and existing markets, these providers can now seize the opportunities afforded by rapidly growing broadband access penetration -- whether based on DSL, Metro Ethernet, Fiber-To-The-Anything (FTTx), or wireless Wi-Fi and WiMAX.

    "The future of broadband is not mere access. It's on-demand and pay-per-use services that attract a new tier of high value customers and open new revenue streams from current subscribers," said Mark Nicholson, Chief Technology Officer and Vice President, Product Development for Syndesis. "The fulfillment challenge that service providers still face, however, is how to deliver these value-added services profitably. With our solution, service providers can sharpen their focus on delivering the next generation of broadband services by using the best technology available for the job, achieving a 'network infrastructure triple play' -- any vendor, any technology, any topology."

    With the introduction of Release 5.0, Syndesis' DSL solution suite     now offers:

    - Service application enhancements, such as Voice-over-IP (VoIP),
        Voice-over-DSL (VoDSL), Voice-over-Broadband (VoBB),  
        Video-on-Demand (VoD), and ultra high-speed Internet, that  
        leverage new functional capabilities inherent within the latest
        access equipment;

    - Support for over 150 network elements, with out-of-the-box
        support for the latest DSL equipment from vendors such as  
        Adtran, Alcatel, Cisco, Copper Mountain, Juniper, Lucent,  
        Marconi, Nokia and Siemens;

    - Support for next generation DSLAMs and Aggregation routers that
        utilize Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and Virtual or Transparent  
        LAN transport that enable lower-cost, more flexible metro  
        distribution  architecture; and,

    - Dynamic support for PVC, Virtual Path, or hybrid Layer 2 and
        3-based access architectures with service model support ranging
        from re-provisioning for basic services to fully on-demand  
        provisioning for more complex services.
    DSL Broadband Solutions for Business

    Service providers are under increased pressure from business customers to expand their broadband service offerings, while keeping delivery costs to a minimum. Syndesis helps service providers meet this challenge and cost-effectively deliver the next generation in broadband services with features such as:

    - Emerging service support -- enables new services such as VoBB  
        for IP-based Centrex PBX connectivity, VoD and ultra high-speed
        virtual private networks (VPNs) -- available over a range of  
        broadband access infrastructures (DSL, fiber) and core transport
        technologies (Frame Relay, ATM, Gigabit Ethernet);

    - Service layer abstraction -- supports a ubiquitous end-to-end
        view of broadband services, allowing a seamless integration of
        existing and emerging access technologies while shielding
        provisioners from underlying network complexities;

    - Policy-based service provisioning -- enables business-driven
        views and control of service fulfillment by routing services  
        based on business policies, quality of service (QoS) classes and
        real-time network events; and,

    - Business analytics application -- monitors the Syndesis system
        and network interfaces, providing reports on provisioning,  
        activation and upload performance to meet service layer  
        agreements (SLAs); also reports on the uptake of new services as
        they roll out, ensuring service providers can track and target  
        their most successful service offerings.
    DSL Broadband Solutions for Consumers

    Faced with price wars and other market pressures, service providers are turning toward higher margin voice, data and digital video services for the mass market. Syndesis is setting a new standard for automated, dynamic service provisioning and activation essential for high-volume, differentiated broadband service delivery by featuring:

    - Cutting-edge technology support -- extensive out-of-the-box
        support for existing and emerging network elements and  
        technologies that enable margin-enhancing broadband services    
        such as VoIP, VoDSL or VoBB, plus enhanced digital video and  
        data services across emerging transport infrastructures such as

        Passive Optical Networks (PON) or Gigabit Ethernet (GigE);

    - Vendor neutrality -- an essential requirement for simplified
        vendor selection, enabling service providers to base network
        equipment strategies on business drivers rather than vendor
        incumbency while leveraging vendor-specific features that may  
        provide a competitive differentiator for broadband access  
        services; and,

    - Unmatched system performance and scalability -- automated
        end-to-end service provisioning and activation with transaction
        rates measured in the thousands of orders per hour, not days or
    Release 5.0 of the Syndesis DSL solution suite is designed to
address broadband network and service complexity and dynamic service
provisioning. Pre-provisioning may handle the demands for basic
broadband services adequately, but as new enhanced 'voice-data-video'
service bundling becomes the norm, the 'one service fits all' model
must evolve to a new dynamic, on-demand service delivery paradigm.
Syndesis' DSL solutions seamlessly manage this evolution, efficiently
and cost-effectively. It handles the large number of new and diverse
service offerings associated with the next generation in broadband
services -- and does this without disrupting carriers' existing
operational methods and procedures.


    Release 5.0 of the Syndesis DSL solution suite includes the award-winning Syndesis® NetProvision™, Syndesis® NetDiscover™ and Syndesis® NetOptimizer™ products and is available immediately.
