Datacraft has completed the first phase of a major development for Telecom Wholesale to provide an ordering tool for newly regulated wholesale broadband services to wholesale service providers.
Under the contract with Telecom, Datacraft was responsible for developing the ordering tool according to a tight government-mandated delivery schedule. The development integrated a web-based user interface with Telecom’s legacy back-end systems.
The project was seen as particularly challenging because it related to a new Telecom service offering — Enhanced UBA (Unbundled Bitstream Access) — which Telecom was required to deliver under a standard terms determination issued by the Commerce Commission.
“The Government’s separation regime set demanding time-lines for completion of a complex programme of work to exceed its regulation objectives,” says Matt Crockett, CEO of Telecom Wholesale.
Datacraft leveraged its service framework, Automation Server, to implement business logic that supports a range of automated provisioning scenarios.
Datacraft managing director Robin Hartendorp says the project was by far the largest and most complex project the team had been involved in.
