Strategic Imperatives, the virtual network enabler and developer od Openreach integration solutions for WLR (Wholesale Line Rental) and LLU (Local Loop Unbundling) communications providers, today announced the launch of WLR3 Accelerator, an SME (Small Medium Enterprises) edition of its market leading VNE and WLR3 platform.
This release underpins Strategic Imperatives vision to make available its premium platform to all communication providers and bring true equivalence to the wholesale Line Rental market.
Strategic Imperatives already enables some of the UK leading communications providers to integrate with the Openreach EMP platform and is the only solution provider to have successfully delivered live EMP solutions for both LLU and WLR3.
WLR3 Accelerator frees smaller communication providers from the limited implementations of WLR3 typically available to them and empowers them to compete equally by delivering a rich level of functionality which until now was only available to their larger competitors.
“After the tremendous success of Strategic Imperatives Openreach integration solutions with the UK’s Tier One providers, we are absolutely delighted to offer the opportunity for the smaller communication provider to compete on a truly equal footing.” commented Wail Sabbagh, Managing Director at Strategic Imperatives.
“Whilst Openreach has delivered an equal opportunity with the EMP platform, realising the full benefit of it requires significant investment in money, time and resources that is beyond all but the largest communication providers. With WLR3 Accelerator this is no longer the case. We are offering capabilities never before available to the smaller communication provider which addresses their unique challenges and requirements” he added.
The company says WLR3 Accelerator delivers a premium and proven WLR3 technology solution through a fully hosted and managed platform and a compelling proposition which includes Openreach Product Establishment, support, upgrades, training and migration. Communication providers will benefit from the unique and comprehensive features of WLR3 Accelerator which include:
State of the Arts order entry and fault management portal, extensive reporting and SLA management tools, integration with complementary services such CPS and Broadband User and Reseller management and express integration module to connect with any billing or CRM system
By 2010, all Communication Providers working with Openreach are required to have EMP compatible systems in place. WLR3 Accelerator enables small and medium communication providers to get there today and benefit from the multi million pound investment in EMP integration technology made by Strategic Imperatives.
