Cincinnati Bell switches to ETI's Triad for FTTH ONT activation

JUNE 1, 2010 -- Cincinnati Bell Telephone (CBT) has deployed Enhanced Telecommunications, Inc.'s (d.b.a. ETI Software Solutions) Triad Service Delivery Platform (SDP) for automated, flow-through service activation on CBT's FTTH fiber network, providing voice, video and data services.

JUNE 1, 2010 -- Cincinnati Bell Telephone (CBT) has deployed Enhanced Telecommunications, Inc.'s (d.b.a. ETI Software Solutions) Triad Service Delivery Platform (SDP) for automated, flow-through service activation on CBT's FTTH fiber network, providing voice, video and data services.

CBT identified the need for automation due to the technical complexities associated with activating the optical network terminals (ONT) in its FTTH network, and the desire for tight integration between billing and service activation.

"We selected ETI because they have a proven solution," says Darrick Zucco, FIOPTICS vice president and general manager, Cincinnati Bell Telephone, referring to ETI's previous integration and deployments with Alcatel-Lucent's 7342 GPON product and Motorola's AXS Vision GPON product. "We expect this product to improve the installation, activation, service, and billing of our fiber products after the integration of Triad into our existing architecture."

Using Triad's business-level XML API, several BSS and OSS applications push data into the SDP. The SDP, in turn, provides the flow-through activation of voice, video, and data on the ONT ports.

CBT also uses Triad to control service activation on video set-top boxes and video on demand. Within the scope of the provisioning, ETI provides direct interfaces to CBT's service routers for data provisioning, telephone gateways for voice provisioning, and an interface to a SIP server for VoIP provisioning using the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).
