HELSINKI -- Comptel Corporation (OMX Helsinki: CTL1V), the leading vendor of dynamic Operations Support System (OSS) software, announced today the Comptel Inventory Mediator, a new dynamic way of collecting information about the network to improve the accuracy of the data held in a network inventory, for example Comptel Inventory Solution. This latest enhancement to the Comptel Dynamic OSSTM follows the recent announcement of Comptel Service Catalog Solution, which is also a key to service fulfillment automation.

For service providers, maintaining accurate information about their network in an inventory solution is fundamental, for example to ensure the success of service fulfillment automation. To achieve improved accuracy, inventory solutions have often been synchronised in the past with the network, either through Element Management Systems (EMS) or via auto-discovery tools. However, the major issue with such deployments is maintaining the library of interfaces to an ever growing number of evolving network elements. Comptel has solved this problem by linking the Comptel Inventory Solution with its award winning Comptel Convergent Mediation Solution.

Mr Harri Palviainen, Executive Vice President Network Inventory Business, explains: “For most suppliers of service fulfillment solutions, keeping up-to-date with network interfaces is difficult and costly. This means service providers using such solutions can experience real delays in upgrading their fulfillment processes when next generation equipment is rolled out in their network. For Comptel though, maintaining interfaces is part of our core business. The Comptel Convergent Mediation Solution has interfaces to over 400 data sources found in service provider networks, and new interfaces are being added all the time. This puts Comptel in quite a unique position to ensure the data-accuracy of the inventory now and in the future.”
