TORONTO - Canadian telco Bell Aliant has deployed Sigma Systems' Telco Services Accelerator to provision and activate residential services in its fiber-to-the-home network.

The FTTH project, FibreOP, covers parts of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador and is on track to pass 600,000 homes and businesses by the end of 2012.

Tim Spencer, president and COO of Sigma Systems, says, "Fiber-to-the-home networks are continuing to gain momentum with our telco customers like Bell Aliant around the world. With the Telco Services Accelerator, Sigma Systems enables service providers to monetize FTTH networks and assist our customers in bringing any type of service or bundle to market in an accelerated manner."

The Sigma Systems Service Management Platform has allowed Bell Aliant to reduce operational silos and assist with the delivery of residential triple-play bundles from a single OSS service fulfillment system. Recently, Bell Aliant also rolled out service fulfillment for hosted commercial VoIP services and deployed Sigma Systems' Device Provisioning Manager (DPM) to configure and provision SIP/IP phones for business users.

In addition, the solution gives Bell Aliant
- Built-in support for Alcatel-Lucent ONTs, GENBAND softswitches and Microsoft Mediaroom for IPTV, which reduces time to deployment
- Fully integrated service order-to-activation processes with integration to Bell Aliant's CRM and billing system
- Compliance with the TM Forum's certification for Order Management API and Web Services in a next-generation OSS framework, which enables faster time to market through standards-based OSS-to-BSS interoperability
- Reduction in complexity of provisioning and managing multiple types of SIP and IP phones for future business VoIP services.

"By deploying a 100 percent fiber-to-the-home network, customers are now able to experience Internet and TV services to their full potential, with the fastest Internet upload and download speeds and best-in-market TV product available to customers throughout our region," says Ivan Toner, CTO at Bell Aliant.
