Product Details 


 
--  This latest release of Oracle's pre-integrated OSS suite enables:
    --  Faster solution deployments due to a simpler graphical
        configuration for the user interface and enhanced inventory
        support for assigning channels to connectivity services
    --  Simpler solution deployments with reduced risk and cost through
        pre-built support for a number of standard technologies --
        including SDH and SONET with support for E-carrier, T-carrier and
        J-carrier digital system standards -- for multiplexed
        communication transmission
    --  Increased accuracy of the network inventory data through
        productized integration of network discovery / reconciliation with
        network inventory -- particularly important for large,
        capital-intensive optical networks
    --  Standardized and automated solution deployments with the
        introduction of reusable design patterns and auto-generated
        solution configurations for a number of service and technology
        domains -- including mobile GSM/3GPP, cable TV, digital video,
        VoIP, IP virtual private networks (VPN) and metro Ethernet
    --  Simplified introduction and delivery of complex enterprise
        services -- such as IP VPNs and metro Ethernet -- with productized
        solution integration of Oracle Communications Order and Service
        Management with Oracle Communications IP Service Activator
--  Oracle Communications OSS suite has been certified on a consistent and
    contemporary technical platform that supports Oracle Solaris and
    Oracle Linux operating systems, Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle
    Database. It also supports virtually seamless upgrades from earlier
    versions for easier and consistent incorporation of new technology,
    security and performance updates.
--  CSPs can deploy the entire Oracle Communications OSS suite or
    selectively implement specific solutions or applications in a modular
    fashion, integrating third party components. The suite is also fully
    integrated with the Oracle Communications Rapid Offer Design and Order
    Delivery solution using Oracle Application Integration Architecture to
    support an end-to-end "Order to Activate" business process.
