Cramer, Cisco team for OSS
Cramer Systems has partnered with Cisco Systems Inc. to enable automated, low-cost provisioning of xDSL services over Cisco-powered networks.
The companies have integrated Cramer's network inventory and provisioning automation solution with Cisco's CNS Configuration Engine network activation platform. The proof-of-concept integration enables the management of prerequisite or dependent activities such as ordering or installation of hardware at customers' homes.
The Cramer-Cisco combination offers totally automated xDSL service delivery, tracking of network resources and inventory management and fulfillment, according to Cramer.
The network inventory and provisioning automation software provider has said the proof-of-concept integration illustrates how new technologies and services such as metro Ethernet and Ethernet-to-the-home can be deployed in line with anticipated demand.
