PLANO, Texas and LONDON -- MetaSolv Software, Inc., a global leader in comprehensive operational support system solutions for next-generation communications service providers, today announced the introduction of Provisioning 5, MetaSolv's next-generation order management solution, designed to automate provisioning tasks to support the service fulfillment process.

Provisioning 5, formerly known as MetaSolv OMS, provides critical back-office provisioning management functions to orchestrate the essential tasks required to deliver ordered services to customers as well as managing internal network buildouts for broadband, IP, data and mobile services. The Provisioning 5 solution framework facilitates interoperability with multiple systems, including legacy and commercial applications, and simplifies how new services are designed, bundled and delivered. Provisioning 5 utilizes a 100% J2EE (JEE) meta-data driven architecture that is tuned to scale and handle the demands of the largest tier-one carriers and provides the flexibility required to manage highly complex service processes essential for next-generation service delivery.

This approach, currently in production with numerous MetaSolv customers, provides the essential back-office provisioning management function that sits between upstream customer relationship management (CRM) systems and downstream inventory management and activation platforms to ensure successful delivery of services. Provisioning 5 also provides critical fallout management capabilities to ensure that any service or network order fallout is handled quickly and efficiently.

As part of the introduction of Provisioning 5, MetaSolv is also introducing Service Studio for Provisioning, building on the capabilities already released with MetaSolv's Activation 5 platform. Service Studio for Provisioning is a powerful graphical tool that enables the rapid design and deployment of services and service provisioning processes. Service Studio puts the service modeling and assembly in the hands of service experts without requiring detailed IT skills, thus empowering service providers to easily and rapidly assemble new and innovative services and service bundles. Provisioning 5 also sets a new industry benchmark for Tier 1 performance and scalability with benchmarks demonstrating a throughput order process rate of upwards of 2 million automated orders per day.

"Managing the entire provisioning process is a fundamental component in progressive OSS architectures that sometimes is overlooked by service providers," noted Larry Goldman, partner, OSS Observer. "MetaSolv has demonstrated it has a solid understanding of the requirements to enable back-office service provisioning and the introduction of Provisioning 5 provides compelling value to operators and a core capability necessary to automate the entire service fulfillment cycle."

MetaSolv's cross domain provisioning and order management capabilities have been deployed by more than 50 operators in countries around the world to support a range of services including VoIP, IP-VPN, mobile, broadband, voice and data. MetaSolv's provisioning solutions can be deployed either standalone, or as part of an integrated architecture with MetaSolv's activation and inventory solutions, thereby enabling automated service fulfillment.

"The innovation within Provisioning 5 will unleash significant value as operators deploy and automate next-generation IP and Mobile services," said David Sharpley, senior vice president, marketing and product management, MetaSolv. "Provisioning 5 coupled with our inventory and activation capabilities enable operators to automate the order-to-activate provisioning process reducing operations cost and enabling the rapid creation and launch of new revenue generating services or bundles."
