Ottawa, Ontario, May 17, 2004 – Telcordia® Technologies, Inc., a global provider of telecommunications software and services, today announced a strategic OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) partnership agreement with Atreus Systems™, a provider of software solutions for the rapid creation and delivery of IP (Internet Protocol) services. Under the agreement, Telcordia will market and sell the Atreus xAuthority™ Service Fulfillment solution for Voice Over IP (VoIP) and other advanced services like IP Centrex and Messaging, as part of its Telcordia Elementive™ Portfolio.

“As service providers zero in on higher-margin, value-added services, the complexity of the operational challenges behind these initiatives grows,” explains Larry Goldman, Partner, OSS Observer. “The solution from Telcordia and Atreus will help streamline and automate the creation and provisioning of VoIP and other advanced data and application services in order to support the initiatives of service providers to capture new revenue streams and reduce churn.”

The ability to rapidly deliver advanced, IP-based service bundles requires managing complex processes and devices throughout the network. The partnership combines Telcordia’s ability to enable flow-through activation and provisioning of leading softswitch, application server and media gateway vendors with Atreus’s service fulfillment solution to support development and delivery of advanced VoIP services. Through self-service web portals, the partnership offers VoIP ordering, fulfillment and group management functions to dramatically reduce operating expenses and improve customer satisfaction. Service providers will also maximize the revenue potential of VoIP with the ability to easily create differentiated packages to target specific business customer needs.

“Our agreement with Atreus compliments our Elementive strategy to streamline the creation, provisioning and management of next-generation network applications and services to deliver cost-effective, end-to-end revenue-generating solutions for service providers,” said Chris Drake, Group Senior Vice President, New Generation Systems, Telcordia Technologies. “Our open, configurable Elementive Portfolio, combined with Atreus’ expertise in automated service definition and fulfillment, delivers the market’s only operations solution for flexible and user customizable service introduction, fulfillment and assurance for VoIP and other advanced services.”

“Atreus is pleased to announce an OEM agreement with Telcordia as it furthers our ability to provide our joint customers with cost-effective solutions for advanced services like IP Centrex,” said Len Castelli, Vice President of Business Development & Product Management at Atreus Systems. “As profits from traditional services continue to decline, Telcordia Elementive Portfolio gives providers a low-risk, adaptable solution that fulfills their customer’s VoIP needs today, while supporting their future requirements for converged voice, video and data.”
