October 17, 2012 by Craig Galbraith | Great Lakes Data Systems (GLDS) has completed integration between its WinCable subscriber management and billing system and Huawei’s U2000 network management system (NMS). The combined solution is being deployed for Wananchi Group in Kenya, and will offer complete service delivery control of voice, video and data services, directly from the billing system.GLDS expects the new billing-system integration will minimize revenue loss significantly and ensure better customer satisfaction. Direct provisioning will allow operators to manage triple-play service delivery more efficiently, eliminating the need for multiple disparate systems, the company said. This will allow operators to manage their fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network without any additional mediation or provisioning layers.
“Huawei is honored with this strategic partnership with GLDS being the very first integration of our solutions. This will help reduce operational cost significantly allowing fast and easy deployment of Huawei FTTx GPON solution for fixed broadband services in Kenya, through which customer user experience can be enhanced by up to 100mbps to home speeds on fiber access networks.”
GLDS says its solutions include both standalone and cloud-based billing, subscriber management, field management and provisioning software.
