Atreus Helps Carriers Simplify Deployments and Manage Subscriber Growth with New Service Provisioning Release

PHOENIX, Ariz. — Atreus Systems(TM), the leading supplier of provisioning solutions for converged IP services, today announced the general availability of xAuthority 4.0, the latest release of the company’s award-winning provisioning platform. xAuthority 4.0 supports powerful new capabilities designed to meet the stringent performance and scalability requirements of the world’s largest carriers.

Atreus’ xAuthority platform empowers service providers to streamline the complex processes required to provision any subscriber-based IP service-from Hosted PBX and Unified Messaging to fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) and collaborative business applications. Complementing the provisioning platform is an extensive library of service-specific modules that encompass industry best practices for provisioning. Atreus’ out-of-the-box service solutions help providers speed time-to-market for new services by streamlining the many steps required to successfully turn-up and manage a service. Atreus also provides pre-integrated vendor-specific adaptors for VoIP and IMS application servers, and easy-to-use portals for CSRs and resellers, as well as customer administrators and end users.

The xAuthority provisioning solution also features a flexible service bundling application that simplifies the process of creating blended service bundles that combine complementary services and competitive pricing for specific target markets. The enhancements provided in latest release of xAuthority focus on improving system performance and scalability and simplifying deployments in complex carrier environments.

Key enhancements include:

    * System performance improvements, including a 200% improvement in UI response times and a
    five-fold increase in the number of orders provisioned per hour
    * Disaster site set up and recovery, including support for hot standby and system failover
    * Certification on Linux Red Hat Enterprise and Solaris 10 operating environments
    * Support on Sun and IBM BladeCenter hardware platforms
    * Full Java application platform compatibility for enhanced system scalability and performance
    * Transaction management enhancements

“As carriers step up their efforts to combat competitive forces in the market, they’re rolling out innovative new IP services with greater frequency,” said Doug Bellinger, CTO, Atreus Systems. “As take rates for these services grow and subscriber transactions increase, the scalability and performance of the service delivery environment become paramount to success. Where performance is concerned, the latest xAuthority release continues to push the envelope.”
