C Spire Fiber Accelerates Broadband Service Delivery with NetCracker
WALTHAM, MA — January 23, 2014 — NetCracker Technology announced today that it is accelerating broadband service delivery for C Spire Fiber, a “carrier’s carrier” offering full-service provider transport, Internet, and broadband network services.
By leveraging NetCracker’s Outside Plant Management solution and data migration services, as well as implementing NetCracker’s Service Order Management solution, C Spire Fiber is accelerating service delivery, enhancing order fulfillment accuracy, and improving physical and logical inventory data across its 4,400-mile fiber optic network.
C Spire Fiber’s business is growing rapidly as it rolls out increasing broadband services to support business users and enable residential services such as fiber-to-the-home. With NetCracker’s Outside Plant Management solution, and data migration services, C Spire Fiber has centralized its physical and logical network inventory data. This enables comprehensive, map-based management of its outside plant assets for modeling and documenting cables, splices, and terminations.
Furthermore, NetCracker’s Service Order Management solution has been deployed to enable C Spire Fiber to gain an end-to-end view of every order, and substantially improve staff efficiency and order fulfillment timeliness and accuracy. As a result, C Spire Fiber will reduce operating expenses across its ordering and fulfillment processes; leverage more intelligent analytics to handle process issues and order volume proactively; accelerate revenue through faster service turn-up; and improve facilities construction efficiency.
“As our business grows and diversifies, we need to drive as much speed and cost efficiency into our service delivery processes as possible,” said Gregg Logan, Senior Vice President at C Spire Fiber. “Working with NetCracker, a proven software solution provider, we are accelerating our business processes, reducing our operating costs, and driving profitability in our customer-facing transactions.”
