– Deal Marks Axiros’ expansion into Turkey –
(Munich, Germany) – Axiros, the technology leader in advanced service and device management, announced today that it has been selected by Turkish telecommunications giant D-SMART for the remote provisioning, management and monitoring of its deployed broadband services. D-SMART provides broadband and video satellite services to more than 80 cities across Turkey. More than 180,000 customers could benefit from the move to Axiros.
D-SMART selected Axiros after an exhaustive search whereby it was looking to replace its existing Consona device management solution. Under terms of the agreement, D-SMART will leverage Axiros’ flagship product, AXESS.ACS, chosen specifically for its modular and highly scalable architecture as well as its flexibility in integration with back-end OSS/BSS systems. AXESS.ACS will also enable D-SMART to automatically provision services without requiring customer interaction and to remotely manage customer configuration. All of which will translate into a more seamless customer experience.
D-SMART’s Network & Technical Operation Director Suat Altintas noted that in today’s broadband landscape remote device management, monitoring and troubleshooting are as important as a self-service portal and zero-touch provisioning. “We chose the Axiros solution for its capabilities, capacity and flexibility to meet our expectations,” he said. “We also felt it was crucial that the solution be scalable enough to meet future needs in a timely and cost-effective manner.”
Matthew Hemming, Axiros VP of Sales & Business Development, says that D-SMART’s reasons for choosing Axiros underscore a trend he is seeing industry-wide. “There is a growing demand for ease of device integration paired with enhanced customer service and support,” he says. “Telecommunications service providers are looking to differentiate themselves in a highly competitive marketplace, and these two value systems are moving front and center. We’re pleased D-SMART singled out AXESS.ACS as a key component of its forward-leaning growth plans.”
AXESS.ACS is the leading subscriber device management system – deployed and productive at more than 35 percent of Europe´s top 50 operators and carriers. ROI is high as it delivers a fast time to integration paired with a very short release cycle for new product introduction. Core functionality includes:
- Remote device management,
- Short-time monitoring – troubleshooting device monitoring,
- Zero touch provisioning,
- Customer self-service portal support, and
- Security management.
The Axiros/D-SMART deal was brokered with the assistance of Axiros’ local business and technology partner, Etiya. D-SMART anticipates completing the transition to the Axiros platform by December 2013.
