TORONTO -- Sigma Systems (www.sigma-systems.com), a premier provider and leader in the design, development and deployment of OSS service management solutions, announces its participation in launching the availability of the OSS/J Order Management API Specification through its contribution in an expert group at the TeleManagement Forum (TMF).

The OSS/J initiative was founded in 2000 to develop a set of J2EE, open, interface standards for the telecommunications industry, including integration of BSS and OSS. In May 2006, the OSS/J initiative partnered with the TMF to better address the concerns of NGOSS implementation stakeholders by providing open standard APIs based on the NGOSS framework.

This new Order Management API standardizes how an order capture system (billing or CRM) communicates with an OSS service management system, such as Sigma System’s SMP 4.0, to handle product orders, service orders or work orders to be provisioned across a CSPs service delivery network.

Sigma Systems was one of the leading authors of this API and the selected OSS vendor who provided the API’s reference implementation.

“The newest release of OSS/J APIs are a significant step towards accelerating convergence in the communications industry,” says Martin Creaner, president of the TMForum. “It is a key milestone in our goal to make it easier for the industry to put the NGOSS framework into practice.”
