BATH, U.K. -- Cramer Systems today announced that its software is to be trialled by BT (London:BT-A)(NYSE:BTY) in a project aimed at improving the speed and efficiency of service provisioning over BT's nationwide access network -- one of the largest copper-based communications facilities in the world. BT will evaluate Cramer's capabilities for overall management of the provisioning of voice and DSL services across BT's entire national copper access network -- a massive provisioning operation that could exceed 7 million transactions per month, and the management of over 2.5 terabytes of data. The evaluation project award follows an extensive assessment of inventory management and provisioning solution providers worldwide. BT Network Inventory Manager Vicki Liner said, "Broadband services allow BT to make better use of our existing access network. But these services are more complex to deliver. The aim of this project is to ensure that BT has a provisioning capability that can deliver existing and new services in high volumes exploiting a vast access network -- efficiently and profitably." Cramer CEO Jerry Crook said, "Now is a good time for Tier1 operators to be re-assessing their core inventory management and provisioning systems -- they need to be preparing for fierce competition among telecom survivors by becoming ultra-efficient and driving costs down. We are pleased to be working with BT as one of the world's most respected carriers to help them achieve this objective." British Telecommunications plc (BT) Cramer Systems Ltd.
