PT Telkom Indonesia selects Clarity OSS for Broadband
Indonesia’s largest telecommunication and network services provider extends its relationship with Clarity to its broadband network
Sydney, Australia: 22 June 2011 – Clarity, the award-winning provider of unified solutions designed to simplify the operations of communication service providers, today announced that the next phase of its rollout for PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (TELKOM) has commenced. The latest deployment enables Fulfilment and Assurance capabilities for TELKOM’s broadband access network.
Since 2006, TELKOM has undertaken a transformation program to support their Next Generation Network (NGN) initiative. A key component of the program is the migration to a flexible and unified operational support system. To date, TELKOM has unified their Switching, Transmission, Multimedia, Fixed Wireless and Metro-E domains onto the Clarity OSS solution. This latest solution for Broadband Access continues the consolidation of TELKOM’s networks onto one management platform and supports their commitment to delivering excellent customer service. In this phase the Clarity solution will provide:
· Inventory Management
· Discovery and Reconciliation
· Service Configuration and Activation
· Trouble Ticketing
By unifying their network management using the Clarity OSS, TELKOM is able to implement an umbrella solution, to support their entire NGN topology, including DSLAM, MSAN, WiMAX and GPON inventory.
“Standardising our operational support systems is one of the four pillars of our transformation program. It eliminates the challenges of proprietary network and resource management systems, so that we can implement new business strategies easily and efficiently,” commented Indra Utoyo, Director of IT Service and Solution (CIO) at TELKOM. “Clarity’s Fulfilment and Assurance solution is well proven at TELKOM, providing us with a clear view of our entire network status, regardless of the technology or the vendor. Now, as we move forward with our NGN program, Clarity is once again our solution of choice to support our strategic objective of service innovation and convergence based on an IP platform.”
Jon Newbery, Chief Executive Officer at Clarity, added: “Operators worldwide are deploying next generation networks to lead their markets with innovative new services using a convergent IP backbone. Our continued work with TELKOM highlights the benefits of the unified Clarity OSS. By supporting any network or technology, Clarity greatly simplifies and reduces the cost of introducing new network technologies, so that as operators grow and innovate, they can leverage their existing infrastructure to get to market quickly.”
