Microsoft launches Connected Services Framework for Telecommunications Services
Posted on 14-Feb-2005 13:48 | Tags Filed under: News



Microsoft Corp. has announced the general availability of the Microsoft Connected Services Framework, an integrated software solution that allows telecommunications operators and service providers to deliver converged communications services across multiple networks and a range of device types.

"Today, everyone talks about convergence, but telecommunications providers are still struggling to make this a reality," said Maria Martinez, corporate vice president of the Communications Sector at Microsoft. "They are faced with disparate networks, services that reside in silos and complex legacy back- office systems, factors that make it nearly impossible to quickly and cost- effectively deliver key services to their customers. The Microsoft Connected Services Framework addresses this problem by delivering the critical service creation, deployment and management capabilities that allow operators to unite systems through a common service-oriented architecture. In a rapidly evolving market, the Microsoft Connected Services Framework enables operators to prosper from change."

The Microsoft Connected Services Framework is a server-based solution that works in conjunction with a suite of proven products from Microsoft, including Microsoft BizTalk Server, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Windows Server and Microsoft Visual Studio .NET, and provides a unified platform for creating, aggregating and managing converged services.

By deploying the Connected Services Framework, operators can bring together not only Microsoft services such as Microsoft Solution for Hosted Exchange 2003, the Microsoft TV platform and Microsoft Office Live Communications Server, but also operator-developed services and third-party services and content to create new combinations of services targeting specific customer segments. The Connected Services Framework provides integration with a variety of operations support systems (OSS), business support systems (BSS) and network service products based on industry standards.

The firtst operators to deploy the new framework are BT, Bell Canada and Celcom Malaysia.
