LightSquared selects Evolving Systems for 4G LTE service activation


Evolving Systems, a provider of software solutions and
services to the wireless, wireline and IP carrier market, announced that
LightSquared, a 4G LTE network operator in the U.S., has selected the company’s
Tertio Service Activation
solution as the provisioning layer for its mission critical Business and
Operational Support Systems (B/OSS).


The Tertio solution will provide LightSquared with a
unified service activation and provisioning platform for all of its services,
including LTE Data, LTE Voice, VAS, and Satellite.


With Tertio, LightSquared’s clients will be able to
provision and activate subscribers homed on the LightSquared network quickly,
efficiently and error free. In addition, they will be able to manage the
subscriber’s lifecycle through various states, add and remove services, and
query status on demand in near-real-time.


“After an extensive evaluation of the industry’s top
B/OSS vendors, we determined Evolving Systems’ service activation solution was
not only best of breed, but also was capable of supporting our unique and
innovative business model,” said Mahmood Mirza, VP of OSS at LightSquared.


“We are very pleased to have been selected by
LightSquared as their service activation partner,” said Thad Dupper,
chairman and CEO at Evolving Systems.


“LightSquared’s go-to-market plan as well as their
choice of LTE technology promises to reshape the competitive landscape in the
U.S. by providing greatly enhanced connectivity options for people and devices.
We are very excited to be able to contribute to LightSquared’s vision and
success,” Dupper added.


Evolving Systems recently announced
that an African customer has placed a significant upgrade order for the
company’s Dynamic SIM Allocation (DSA)
solution, providing support for mobile broadband and number selection.


The initial phase of the DSA solution allowed the
operator to overcome many of the issues associated with pre-provisioning, such
as number utilization, network capacity and regulatory constraints.
