Belgium's Telenet Selects Amdocs

By Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributor

Telenet, a provider of broadband cable television, telephony and Internet services in Belgium, has selected and deployed the Amdocs Enterprise Product Catalog.

Thanks to the deployment, Telenet will now be able to unify product data management across different lines of business and reduce the time required to launch new product bundles and promotions.

Telenet will also be able to achieve total cost of ownership savings by reducing the number of systems it operates.

Officials with Amdocs said that the Enterprise Product Catalog, part of the company’s CES (News - Alert) 8 product portfolio, will help Telenet to modernize and automate product lifecycle management processes by establishing a single product information catalog where it can quickly define, blend, price, bundle, maintain and retire new offerings.

Company officials said that the Amdocs (News - Alert) Enterprise Product Catalog will centralize all the product information that is currently dispersed across Telenet’s different legacy billing, ordering and provisioning systems.

Amdocs recently announced Amdocs CES 8, which the company claims to be the industry’s most advanced portfolio of business support systems (BSS), operational support systems (OSS) and service delivery platforms (SDP).

Company officials said that it is designed to enable service providers to run leaner operations today, while preparing them to lead in the connected world – a world that is always on, with anytime, anywhere, any device connectivity.

TMCnet in February reported that CSL Limited (CSL), Hong Kong’s mobile operator, has selected Amdocs ChangingWorlds solution to support its new mobile Internet service, MyNet.

Officials with Amdocs said that the company’s ChangingWorlds solution supports MyNet by learning from the user’s behavior and usage patterns to build a customer profile.

This information, company officials said, is applied to suggest links to both on- and off-portal content via a browser bar. The service is browser- and handset-independent, ensuring a superior customer experience that encourages frequent use. This level of personalization enables MyNet users to receive a different mobile Internet experience.
