Axiom Systems Completes Integration With Alcatel 5620 Service Management

Telemanagement World - NICE, France, May 17 (ots/PRNewswire) - Axiom Systems, the leader in Service Fulfilment software for telecommunications, today announced that its AXIOSS(R) for IP Services solution is now integrated with the Alcatel 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM).

This integration will allow Alcatel and Axiom Systems customers to automate the service fulfilment of mass volume orders whilst reducing the cost of ownership of those new service products and their variants from component design to rapid service creation and product launch. All of these benefits occur whilst service revenues increase.

As an Alcatel Connected Partner, Axiom Systems participates in a rigorous certification process to ensure that its products are integrated with Alcatel's IP service routing portfolio in order to simplify introduction of the solution within customer networks, and thus speed implementation of carrier-grade service provisioning.

With this milestone, service providers have an integrated best-of-breed solution that will enable them to:

- Process IP/Ethernet service orders across Alcatel-based IP networks faster and more efficiently than ever before.

- Increase throughput for such orders through improved automation of the end to end order management process, including interfacing to multi-vendor networks where appropriate.

- Minimize capital expenditure through optimized use of existing multi-vendor network resources.

- Reduce time and cost of rollout of multi-site Ethernet and IP services.

- Increase customer satisfaction through improved quality of service delivery

"The Alcatel 5620 SAM and AXIOSS integration makes it easy for providers to take a service-driven approach to activation and provisioning," said Andrew McDonald, vice president and general manager of Alcatel's IP service management activities. "This further demonstrates the commitment from both organizations to ensuring our service provider customers receive the best technical solutions and support in designing, creating and delivering dynamic and new revenue-generating services."

"This solidifies the strong working relationship between Axiom Systems and Alcatel," said Nik Soheili, VP Alliances at Axiom Systems. "The open nature of the SAM XML open interface and the 'Connected Partner' principles of pre-integration, ongoing interoperability and enhanced time-to-market advantages accelerate the delivery of integrated solutions to customers."

Axiom Systems and Alcatel will present a joint demonstration of their product portfolio at TeleManagement World Forum in Nice May 16. The demonstration will show the integration of the certified AXIOSS 5620 SAM Service Aware Manager. Visit us at Booth # 102.
