MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Nov. 18, 2002 -- Granite Systems, Inc., the leading communications software provider of Service Resource Management (SRM) solutions, today unveiled Xng Service Automation, the latest addition to its Xpercom(R) Next Generation (Xng(R)) System. Xng Service Automation utilizes BEA's WebLogic workflow technology, the recently announced Xng Business Delegate Layer (BDL) and XML and Java-based technologies to fully integrate and automate SRM's role in the service provisioning process. As a result, service providers can dramatically reduce provisioning time and cost while enhancing network database integrity through the reduction of corruption from manual data input and manipulation.

"The widespread adoption of XML and other vendor-neutral technologies has given the telecommunications industry an option to the laborious APIs formerly required to integrate OSSs and automate workflow," stated John E. P. Borden, Jr., CEO and president of Granite Systems. "Automation is the next step in OSS evolution, providing dramatic reductions in operational expenditures. Granite's Xng Service Automation is the first product to fully automate the inventory and configuration processes within service provisioning and enable service providers to take the next step in cost reduction."

Xng Service Automation builds on Xng's n-tiered open J2EE architecture, adding the stability of the Xng BDL and flexibility of XML and Enterprise Java Bean (EJB) technology to create the functional transparency to other OSSs and applications necessary for automated provisioning. Xng Service Automation incorporates BEA's WebLogic technology to facilitate workflow process design, execution and management, as well as Xng database updates.
