T-Provisioning


Purpose and application area

T-Provisioning solution aimed for full automation of service provisioning in telecom operator network. T-Provisioning based on Java-based platform with flexible and scalable engine for workflows, on-the-fly applications modification tools and unified but extendable facilities for interfacing with any type of external OSS/BSS and network elements. This allows meet all conceivable kinds of specific requirements in Service providing area for telecom operator in different network environments.

Main functionality

T-Provisioning provides powerful and well-proven flow-through provisioning engines, able to strengthen operator's service fulfillment process by automating any type of high-volume user provisioning and technical network service activation tasks and enabling a single provisioning point for different service types and network technologies and to multiple customer care:

  • processing requests;
  • processing tasks (synchronous and asynchronous);
  • sending responses;
  • locking requests to ensure that only one request focusing on a subscriber is executed at a time;
  • scheduling and prioritizing requests;
  • resending requests and tasks;
  • collecting data on request and task statuses;
  • controlling intermediate sessions;
  • supporting virtual network operators;
  • managing user interface user sessions;
  • network distribution.

Benefits

T-Provisioning is future proven and easily expandable to any new network or service technology that arises. Main advantages comparing to existing analogs are:

  • provides open interfaces for OSS/BSS to provision subscribers and services in a variety of different network domains based on flexible architecture and extended API;
  • could be easily integrated into the full-scale service providing process from the order creation, network resource reservation till the acknowledgement to upper-level OSS/BSS on results of the each services providing transaction;
  • supports several OSS/BSS systems and OSS/BSS interfaces, several network element types and versions simultaneously.
  • flexible adaptation to the operator needs, based on flexible and friendly configuration interface, flexible internal architecture, multi-level service orders fulfillment (from single command to complicated scenario) ;
  • provides tools for flexible management of order queue, single and bulk services provisioning on network elements;
  • provides facilities for reconciliation of subscribers and services statuses on OSS/BSS and network elements;
  • proves a single point of access to the network, provisioning solution shields all admin systems from the complexity and changes of the network layer.


Key features

T-Provisioning has flexible architecture which allows implement any provisioning schemes and approaches in any network domains (see figure Provisioning system architecture):

  • based on J2EE and Oracle technologies;
  • delivered DTK allows easily extend set of interfaces to new network elements and adapt API to specific OSS/BSS in order to provide proper requests flow from OSS/BSS down to relevant NE;
  • system architecture consists of shared control, configuration and database layer, distributed task execution engines and NEs interface points;
  • fully compliant with eTOM framework and different NGOSS models, recommended by TMF;
  • T-Provisioning implements a single provisioning platform, capable of offering unified provisioning service for multiple customer management (admin) clients and across different network technologies;
  • T-Provisioning provides load balancing, the execution resource reservation and task distribution among number of task engines for critical and high capacity applications.

Application

T-Provisioning has excellent abilities for adaptation to Operator‘s needs:

  • flexible internal tools for requests processing implementation and the external systems integration consists of Drag-and-Drop feature for the high-level workflow design and built-in script language for the complicated requests processing;
  • extended debug facilities for comfort implementation and fast bug detection and fixing.
