Telcordia Takes Up uTelco Challenge at Hydro One

PISCATAWAY, N.J., Oct. 26 /CNW/ -- Telcordia ( today announced that Hydro One Telecom Inc., a Canadian provider of broadband telecommunications services to carriers, large enterprises and Internet Service Providers (ISPs), is expanding its existing Telcordia solution to increase network management efficiency across all of its networks. Telcordia is a recognized leader in next generation operations support solutions for wireline, wireless, cable and utility networks.

The upgrades provide Hydro One Telecom with a single, comprehensive resource for modeling and capacity planning across all of its data networks, improving its service to customers and its parent company, Hydro One.

"Utility telcos are evolving rapidly and establishing an increasingly sophisticated communications infrastructure," said William J. Wanke, President, Operations Solutions, Telcordia. "It's logical and prudent that Hydro One Telecom build on a proven foundation of solutions and expertise for managing these new networks and their applications."

Since 2002, Hydro One Telecom has used Telcordia® Network Engineer to provide geospatial network management for the company's fiber-optic network, as well as Telcordia® Common Language® Information Services. In addition, Telcordia® Granite Inventory was deployed in 2003 to meet the increased demands of network inventory management and in 2005 the network asset discovery and reconciliation feature was added for further improvements to data accuracy. This latest expansion sees Hydro One upgrading to the latest version of Telcordia Granite Inventory, which includes enhanced data visualization capabilities.

"Over the past six years, Telcordia has proven itself by providing key components that help us operate our networks efficiently, deliver new services immediately and cost effectively, and improve our business performance," said Paul Marchant, President and CEO, Hydro One Telecom. "Upgrading and expanding our use of Telcordia's solutions is based on their products performance. We rely on partnerships that enable us to meet the demands of our customers and that is particularly true with Telcordia's next generation OSS portfolio."
