CenturyLink Chooses Amdocs for Operational Support Systems Consolidation

December 06, 2012

Amdocs (News - Alert), a provider of customer experience systems and services, announced that CenturyLink Inc., a telecommunications company in the United States, has selected Amdocs for an operational support systems (OSS) consolidation project.

The solution is based on a single inventory repository, and provides an automated, scalable platform for planning and managing next-generation services. The Amdocs solution will help CenturyLink to drive efficiencies with rapid time to market for new product offers.

The OSS platform will also enable service fulfillment automation, streamlining CenturyLink's ordering process and optimizing network and asset utilization.

Amdocs OSS software products are used by service providers to design, build, fulfill and assure their networks. For any type of transmission technology, the product addresses configuration, planning and service fulfillment for all types of telecommunication services.

"We chose Amdocs based on its proven experience, particularly supporting Ethernet and VPN services," stated Bill Bradley, chief information officer at CenturyLink.  

"As we look to grow our network business, we will leverage Amdocs' experience in delivering automated and scalable OSS solutions to quickly achieve a consolidated OSS platform. Not only will this enable CenturyLink to launch future products more rapidly, but it will also reduce costs and shorten the order-to-cash cycle," Bradley added.

"To stay ahead, service providers need to be agile and ready for the future," commented Rebecca Prudhomme, vice president for product and solutions marketing at Amdocs. "By consolidating functions across multiple technologies and lines of business, and providing a single view of network resources, Amdocs' solution will increase CenturyLink's flexibility."  

Amdocs OSS continues to extend and deepen the industry’s most comprehensive OSS suite for service providers. It focuses on network planning and service fulfillment from a common core of service and resource management.

The OSS solutions not only help service providers be efficient by improving their planning and operations teams; they also contribute significant financial benefits to their overall CAPEX and OPEX (News - Alert) network equipment budgets.
