CASE STUDY

Success story: Rolling out New Services

Challenge

A leading telecommunications service provider in the USA recently embarked on developing a Broadband platform that enabled triple play Ė voice, data & video services. A critical component of the rollout was the development of the right OSS applications to support the new platform and resulting services. The client needed a system that provided a high degree of automation and flow-through.

ANT Solution

ANT assisted the client in analyzing, planning, and designing a complex provisioning application for the broadband platform in addition to developing the application, all in a short span.

ANT's domain experts helped with the analysis of the regulatory, process and technology imperatives of the new platform. They also assessed the potential strategic impact of various technologies and standards on the client's networks and markets and how it would translate into good economics for the client. Working closely with the client's team, ANT specialists delivered service of the highest quality, leading to ANT being awarded the contract for development of the application.

Benefits to Client

The application was developed in a very short span due to ANT's expertise, efficiency, and the ability of our teams to work seamlessly with the client's teams. The application was a significant breakthrough for the client since it automated several tasks within the typical provisioning life cycle.
