Sigma Systems achieves OSS watermark
Sigma Systems, which specializes in service fulfillment solutions, announced its Service Management Platform has received the industry's first TM Forum certification for Order Management API and the Web Services-certified next-generation OSS (NGOSS) framework.
The certification establishes Sigma Systems as the first OSS provider to fully interoperate with other certified BSS and CRM vendors.
The OSS/J order management API – Information Framework JSR-264 – is the only open standards-based API interface available for order management solution providers. This new TM Forum API eases interoperability among back office and CRM vendors, resulting in speedier service rollouts, improved operational efficiencies and reductions in deployment costs by as much as 30 percent, Sigma Systems said.
Brian Cappellani, CTO and vice president of engineering for Sigma Systems, said: “Information Framework JSR-264 will remove a major bottleneck that slows the introduction of new services: interoperability among back office solutions. By being the first IP service fulfillment provider to achieve this certification, Sigma Systems uniquely gives operators worldwide the choice to deploy a best-of-breed order management solution for multi-play bundles and next-gen services.”
