Enables convergent service providers to introduce new quadruple play services faster and at lower cost, maximizing revenue
Ceon, a leading provider of product lifecycle management software; Highdeal, a leader in pricing and rating solutions; and Visionael, a leading provider of next generation IP service automation and delivery management software and services, today announced a joint end-to-end B/OSS solution. The combined solution enables convergent service providers to seamlessly and cost-effectively launch and manage new innovative and combinational multi-play offerings on a regular basis. This enables them to maximize revenue and monetize investments for their next generation network infrastructures.
Today, carriers need to deliver new and integrated services, both quickly and cost-effectively. They face significant challenges when implementing service bundles that might include video content, mobile transactions on top of the data and voice services. These include high customer expectations for service quality, and the need to manually make wholesale changes every time a new offering is introduced.
The new solution from Ceon, Highdeal and Visionael offers service providers a one-stop B/OSS solution that launches new services faster, while simultaneously reducing costs of delivery and change management. It combines each of their core software application capabilities to deliver an end-to-end solution to support “flow through” product introduction. The solution includes components for service and resource inventory, sophisticated pricing configuration, product lifecycle/catalog management, provisioning and rating/billing.
“Introducing new products quickly and efficiently will require operators to configure, manage and process technical and commercial product data more seamlessly across all the systems that support their key business operations,” said Peter Burke, CEO of Ceon. “The combined solution from Visionael, Highdeal and Ceon eliminates inconsistencies and gaps in critical resource, pricing and product information, and provides all the key components to enable operators to rapidly deploy new offerings.”
The new solution relies on Visionael’s Systems Orchestrator, Provisioning Services Manager, and Network Resource Manager for product fulfillment, and modeling of physical and logical resources, plus supported technical services. It uses Highdeal’s Transactive for defining innovative price plans in the rating application, and rating utilized services. Ceon’s Product Control Center constructs the product offering and reflects the price plan and technical service building blocks. The combined solution also includes components for service and resource inventory, sophisticated pricing configuration, product lifecycle/catalog management, provisioning and rating/billing.
“Highdeal is extremely excited to be partnering with Visionael and Ceon. Our joint best-of-breed solution provides operators with the right toolset to react rapidly and efficiently to market demands for new and innovative services, products, and packages,” said Eric Pillevesse, Co-founder and CEO of Highdeal.
“Our joint solution will enable operators to launch and manage product offerings of many variations much faster, retire products quickly, and match them to specific market segment needs and consumer lifestyles,” said Craig Nichols, president and CEO of Visionael. “We continue to listen to our customers and the market and are excited to bring this joint offering to market.”
