PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Telcordia Technologies, Inc., a global provider of telecommunications software and services, today announced that AXTEL, the largest and fastest-growing competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) in Mexico, has recently upgraded its Service Resource Management (SRM) solution in order to accelerate service delivery and better manage network operations across multiple markets. The Telcordia SRM solution, recently acquired from Granite Systems, will help speed the delivery of services over AXTEL's fully digital fixed and fixed wireless network. The solution is part of Telcordia's Elementive strategy, which is focused on delivering expanded solutions, products and services to meet customers' unique market needs.

Telcordia's solution manages a carrier's entire "network image" of sites, equipment, configurations and services. It is designed to enable intelligent automation of network design and assign processes and service provisioning, reducing provisioning times and operations costs by more than 30 percent. Its exhaustive inventory management functionality and automated provisioning capabilities will help enable AXTEL to deliver voice and data services, including fixed wireless access and radio services, up to 35 percent faster.

"Telcordia has significantly enhanced our ability to control capital and operational expenses during a period of substantial growth," said Andres Cordovez, IT Infrastructure Director of AXTEL. "This solution is critical to enable us to automate time-consuming processes so that we are able to deliver next-generation services faster, cheaper and better than our competitors."

AXTEL provides integrated local, long-distance, Internet and value-added services to Mexico's eight largest metropolitan areas, which represent more than 50 percent of all telephone lines in Mexico. Having worked with the former Granite Systems since 2001, AXTEL chose to migrate to the newer distributed platform late last year in order to accelerate service delivery and better manage network operations across multiple markets. The upgrade was managed and integrated with other AXTEL OSSs and systems by Hewlett-Packard, and the system went into production last month. AXTEL is working with Telcordia to track its network's physical and logical service resources, including its switched and transport network infrastructure.

"Carriers around the world need to bring services to market quickly and cost effectively in order to gain and retain a competitive advantage in today's market," said John E. P. Borden, President, Telcordia's Granite business unit. "Telcordia is focused on empowering customers with the solutions and services required to do just that. This is an essential part of our Elementive strategy and underscores our continuing commitment to meet the market's ever-evolving needs."
