Axiom Systems, a leader in service fulfillment and service assembly solutions, has announced that Pipex Wireless, owned by Pipex Group and Intel Capital and the only provider of WiMAX services in the UK, has chosen Axiom Systems to support the country's largest wholesale WiMAX Access network.
Pipex Wireless will use the AXIOSS Suite to automate service provisioning thus speeding up and improving accuracy within the fulfillment process. They will also use the Suite to add new and alter existing services quickly, with reusable components. Like other service providers that use the componentized AXIOSS Suite, Pipex Wireless' aim is to have a flexible and fast approach to service creation. The project will roll out to major cities in the UK starting with "Go Live" in Manchester later this year.
"In selecting Axiom Systems, Pipex Wireless was most impressed by the speed and ease with which AXIOSS can provision new services," said Brendan O'Rourke, COO at Pipex Wireless. "This will be a groundbreaking telecommunications project, the first commercial deployment of WiMAX in the UK, which will launch a new generation of personal broadband services for our customers." He continues, "We required an advanced solution with a record of successful installations and AXIOSS was the most effective at helping Pipex Wireless achieve this goal."
"Communications providers such as Pipex Wireless are all now looking to automate the assembly of existing components in their architecture, so that time-to-market for new products can be measured in minutes rather than months," said Gareth Senior, CEO of Axiom Systems. "As a service creation platform that takes a modular approach in itself, AXIOSS is uniquely placed to help companies like Pipex Wireless achieve a rapid return on their investment and adopt a framework that enables them to take advantage of the product opportunities presented by the latest emerging technologies."
Pipex Wireless will be speaking with Axiom Systems on the 6th November 2007 at the TM Forum Management World Americas conference in Dallas.
