Service Provisioning and Activation (SPA) is a top of the line system that provides open interfaces to network elements and is designed to perform transactional single & batch requests with straightforward registration of new business processes. SPA works as a centralized repository database that consolidates profile data across mobile and fixed networks and complies them with relevant reports either regularly or occasionally.
SPA is a convergent service provisioning and activation solution enabling fixed and mobile Communication Service Providers (CSPs) to rapidly introduce new services across multi-vendor and multi-technology networks. Standard-base workflows allow effective modeling of the service logic required to orchestrate business processes. Load-balancing of solution requests is handled through a prioritization mechanism that allows simultaneous and real-time service execution. These mechanisms enable the concurrent capturing of any number of requests from as many systems as required, without causing bottlenecks in the underlying network; all while ensuring the maximum utilization of the available network element connections.
SPA features a well-designed web 2.0 graphic user interface with enhanced ergonomics for convenient use and fast adoption, allowing for rapid modification of any new or existing services.
SPA is a carrier-grade provisioning and activation system that has already been deployed as a service provisioning platform on top of GSM, CDMA, xDSL, Digital Exchanges, IP TV, WiMAX, IMS, and NGN technologies, as well as “old school” analog switches. FORIS supports out-of-the-box integration capabilities with other OSS/BSS systems through all standard industry protocols (e.g. Web-Services, XML, CORBA, OSS/J, JMS, SOAP). It also includes a rich library of ready-made network interface adapters and protocols that allow rapid activation of all types of services on a multitude of different network elements from all leading vendors.

Using Customer Data Storage (CDS), the system creates, updates, reads, and deletes functions containing selected information about the customers and their network activities. The selected information is available to any and all systems in order to avoid congestion on network elements, which can occur with multiple requests for information between the building blocks of telecom operators’ complex IT architectures.
