Tribold takes centre stage in Catalyst Program showcase at TM Forum Management World 2008
Microsoft, BT and Telefónica sponsor demonstration of service delivery innovation

London, UK, 15 May 2008 – Tribold will be playing a central role in a demonstration of the TM Forum Catalyst Program’s work in defining next generation service delivery environments for telecom service providers at TM Forum Management World, taking place in Nice between the 18th and 22nd May 2008. The demonstration, which will take place three times a day during the event, will see Tribold present alongside Catalyst Program vendor partners, including Microsoft, Accenture, CA, NetCracker and Iptivia, and service provider partner Telefónica.

The Catalyst Program members will demonstrate how a network service provider can:
• Create, provision and assure the quality and reliability of new offerings by assembling syndicated network- and application-based services from best of breed third party vendors
• Use a common industry framework, such as New Generation Operations Systems and Software (NGOSS) and Service Delivery Framework (SDF), to create a next generation service delivery environment
• Add the capability to monitor the health and usage of the syndicated SDF services across network and service providers

In its role in the demonstration, Tribold will provide the product catalog and product lifecycle management (PLM) toolset to enable business-led syndication of services to form customer-facing product offerings. The Tribold Product Portfolio Management (Tribold PPM) will receive services published up from the service catalog and will provide the CSP business users to see what services are available to be syndicated. The Product Manager will then use the Tribold Product manager screens to “drag and drop” the services onto the product packaging pallet and construct product offerings in real time, including the ability to set pricing, market segmentation and SLA details within the product offering. After completing the Product Offer construction, or Service Syndication, the new offers are published out into downstream systems such as Order Management, Billing & CRM.

Michel Burger, Service Architect, Server and Tools, Microsoft, commented: “It’s a pleasure to be involved in the Services Syndication Catalyst both as a participant and sponsor. The future of innovation in our industry is based around collaboration between best of breed technology suppliers and this exciting project moves us closer to our shared vision of a reusable service catalog which will help create new business models for operators.”

Sagrario Aleman Perez, Telefónica, added: “As a service provider our primary interest is in bringing new and valuable serves to market quickly and cost-effectively. The only realistic way to do so is to work closely with vendors such as Tribold and the others involved in the Catalyst Program, and we’re looking forward to showcasing the results of our work at Management World 2008.”

Ernest Margitta, Product Marketing Director Tribold, said: “The Catalyst Program demonstration will show how the BSS/OSS industry can benefit enormously from the componentization of services which allows for a reusability missing today. Tribold’s centralized product catalog is an essential building block in service syndication and we’re delighted to be playing a central role in shaping the new model.”

The Catalyst Program is the TM Forum’s living lab, enabling service providers, system integrators and hardware/software vendors to work together to solve common, critical industry challenges. The program provides an opportunity for multi-company, multi-national teams to work together in a collaborative environment with emerging technologies and capabilities to solve some of the most pressing operational and interoperability issues. The Catalyst program directly supports the NGOSS program by implementing many of the NGOSS concepts and principles.
