REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – July 26 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Ceon Corporation today announced advancements in the deployment of the Ceon Integration and Provisioning Suite (IPS) service fulfillment platform that reinforce its position as the most versatile provisioning solution for bundled products and services.

Ceon IPS is a high-performance, rapidly configurable, flexible, and customizable software platform with advanced order management and service activation capabilities for broadband and IP-based services. The platform contains two separate applications, Intelligent Order Manager (IOM) and Intelligent Activation Server (IAS). Ceon IPS has been deployed by a diverse set of communications service providers to quickly, efficiently and accurately fulfill and provision innovative bundled services. Ceon has proven that Ceon IPS can provision any service on any network for any underlying technology.

Major cable companies (MSOs) in the United States and Europe have deployed Ceon IPS to provision HSD and VoIP services that are delivered over advanced HFC networks. Leading US telcos are utilizing Ceon IPS to provision VoIP services, independent of the access portion. Ceon IPS is also currently being used in production to provision a triple-play service bundle (HSD, VoIP, IP-TV) on a hybrid fiber, DSL and HFC network. For some operators, service activation work orders are being issued to network elements within the operator’s own network. In other instances, work orders are also being communicated to trading or service delivery partners in a closed-loop, automated manner. Ceon also handles all or a portion of the inter-carrier provisioning components (E911, LIDB, PIC/CARE) for service providers.

Ceon IPS has well documented and standards based interfaces and APIs to enable rapid integration with other software applications within the OSS environment. This enables a service provider to easily utilize and leverage all or only a portion of Ceon IPS functionality within an overall solution. Ceon is a participant in the Order Management Expert Group within the OSS for Java (OSS/J) Initiative. Ceon’s products and technologies are also aligned with the TeleManagement Forum (TMF) standards and frameworks such as eTOM and SID.

Ceon IPS has over 70 pre-built adapters for a variety of network resources, including:

* VoIP network elements and EMS
* Feature servers, media servers, RKS
* Class 5 switches and voicemail servers
* Host/remote digital terminals and devices
* Video and IP-TV subscriber systems and related middleware
* Cable modem and provisioning servers
* ISP systems
* Inter-carrier provisioning gateways and clearinghouses
* Billing, CRM and mediation systems
* Middleware / EAI connectors

“The ability for an OSS solution to support bundled services provisioning and operate in heterogeneous environments is a critical requirement today given the pace of change in the industry,” says Craig Olsen, Chief Operating Officer, Ceon Corporation. “Ceon’s provisioning platform has proven itself in a wide range of situations. Our core software product is powering the solution in all our deployments. Service providers whose delivery networks are changing because of technological advancement, mergers and acquisitions, or service delivery alliances and partnerships, can be assured that Ceon’s service fulfillment system will support their dynamic and evolving business.”
