HOLMDEL, N.J. -- British Telecom (BT) is currently working with VPIsystems on a project to implement a Network Capacity Analysis and Design (NCAD) system to plan its 21st Century Network (21CN) transformation project, one of the world's largest next generation network migrations. BT's transformation project is migrating the carrier's existing network to a converged network based on Internet Protocol (IP) and Ethernet network technologies. This next generation network will allow BT to drastically reduce operation cost and to support rapid new service introductions such as new bandwidth-hungry services, including on-demand interactive TV. VPI's OnePlan(tm) network planning OSS is a critical element of the project's operations, ensuring that 21CN is able to deliver next generation services today and tomorrow while also enabling BT to plan, design and build out the network as efficiently as possible.

"As the demand for services like IPTV and mobile video content increases, the migration to a next generation network is inevitable for most carriers, and network planning has become a critical precursor and enabler," said Hank Firey, CEO of VPIsystems. "A product like OnePlan allows carriers to conduct the complex cross-domain planning that is essential to next generation networks and forward-thinking carriers like BT will be better prepared than their competitors to deliver and profit from valuable next generation services."

VPIsystems' OnePlan Network Planning Systems was chosen by BT after a rigorous selection process. It was determined during that process, that VPIsystems OnePlan was the "market-leading offering suitable for Twenty-First Century Network adoption. No other product offers the same breadth of coverage."
