Telecom Argentina selects Subex and Accenture to ensure delivery of Next-Generation Services Tuesday 6 May 2008 PDF Print Bangalore, INDIA: Subex Ltd, a leading global provider of Operations Support Systems (OSS) solutions for communications service providers and Accenture have implemented the first phase of a multi-technology activation solution for Telecom Argentina, one of Argentina’s largest telecommunications groups. The solution will help ensure IP services dominance, enable rapid delivery of Ethernet-based services and accelerate growth in broadband. Leveraging Subex’s Service Fulfillment platform, the three-phase, multi-million dollar project is the main component of an ambitious transformation strategy being undertaken by Telecom Argentina. The first phase, which went live in April, 2007, provides Telecom Argentina flow-through provisioning of their IP-VPN services and facilitates the assurance processes. Accenture, sharing the project integration with Telecom, will implement the suite of Subex products for activation solutions, align existing resources (networks, services and equipments), and provide ongoing support and assistance. Subex is providing all of the discovery, upload and activation functionality necessary to enable flow-through provisioning of services for IP VPN, Ethernet and DSL, making it possible for Telecom Argentina to rapidly define, deploy and fulfill advanced service offerings. This is expected to help Telecom Argentina keep pace with corporate and competitive growth, and reduce provisioning time and operations expenditures. “This project supports our corporate mission to continue providing unparalleled service and innovation to our corporate and residential customers,” said Guillermo Desimoni, CIO, Telecom Argentina. “Accelerating the evolution of our network and the introduction of new services is paramount to our continued growth and profitability.” Subex’s Fulfillment solutions are important to Telecom Argentina’s transformation strategy as it implements the systems required to ensure ongoing operational excellence and delivers services that will help to retain current customers, attract new ones and combat the competition. “We are delighted to be working with Accenture to help meet Telecom Argentina’s ambitious goals,” said Greg Le Neveu, President - Americas for Subex Ltd. “Our solutions enable communications service providers to engage quickly in the new broadband world, remain competitive in markets they already dominate and quickly and easily enter future markets. Telecom Argentina will achieve several important business benefits by implementing Subex’s solutions, including automation of the complex tasks required to deliver new revenue-generating data services and the industry’s lowest total cost of ownership.” Telecom Argentina, Accenture and Subex anticipate this project to be the first of many as part of a strong, three-way partnership. The software solutions being deployed at Telecom Argentina leverage Subex’s Service Fulfillment platform, enabling service providers to attain service agility, the ability to quickly and easily define, create and activate new, high-margin services. http://www.subexworld.com -END- About Telecom Argentina: Telecom is the parent company of a leading telecommunications group in Argentina, where it offers directly or through its controlled subsidiaries local and long distance fixed-line telephony, cellular telephony, data transmission and Internet, among other services.
