PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Worldwide communications service providers (CSPs) that are installing next-generation fiber access networks are increasingly relying on Telcordia for their network design and management needs. Sonaecom, Portugal's leading provider in the telecommunications, broadband and media market, is the latest operator to select Telcordia for a national Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) rollout, designed to serve more than one million homes.

For Sonaecom, the key to reducing the cost, complexity and time to market for its broadband installation is Telcordia's suite of network planning and engineering solutions, including Telcordia® Network Engineer, a geospatial network management system that enables comprehensive design, documentation and management of the physical network and its associated inventory.

Sonaecom initially deployed Telcordia Network Engineer in 2001 and uses it to support a EUR 240 million (US$354 million) FTTH network expansion that will be available to more than 2.6 million Portuguese residents by 2011. Through Network Engineer, Sonaecom will track network inventory all the way to the customer residence, eliminating the time and cost of performing those tasks separately in a computer-aided-design (CAD) system.

Eliminating redundant CAD systems is just one of the ways that CSPs use Telcordia Network Engineer to support major network transformation projects. For example, in its FTTH rollout, a European company reduced planning time by 80 percent by using Network Engineer to automate network design and connection tasks.

"For CSPs worldwide, the decision to deploy broadband is easy. It is the execution that is daunting," said Bill Wanke, President, Operations Solutions, Telcordia. "Telcordia helps operators during every step of their network transformation, from planning through provisioning, to ensure a fast, efficient rollout for even the most complex deployments. By providing deep, actionable insights into their network inventory and its capabilities, Telcordia gives CSPs the measurable performance improvements that are must-haves at a time when competition and access to capital are tougher than ever."

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
