Telstra close to buying Amdocs OSS

By
shopping According to a report in Israeli newspaper, Globes, Telstra is in advanced negotiations to buy the Amdocs OSS system, in a deal that could be worth tens of millions of dollars.

The report said it was not presently clear whether Amdocs would sell only the systems, or some peripheral services as well. The paper said it would be Amdocs first OSS project.

Telstra's chief operations officer, Greg Winn, announced November the first of what he would be "a series of upcoming announcements around the IT side [of Telstra's next generation network]... For the front of house CRM customer experience, through to the billing side of it, we have awarded the contract to a consortium of Siebel Kenan, and the service integrator will be the Accenture Corporation." The Kenan billing system was until recently owned by CSG, but is in the process of being acquired by Comverse Technologies.

Globes reported that Amdocs had bid unsuccessfully for this business.

Last September Alcatel and Amdocs signed a letter of intent for cooperation to address the requirements of communications service providers looking to deploy IPTV and other next generation broadband IP services.

In June last year Amdocs signed a letter of intent with Microsoft to combine their technologies and enable service providers to more rapidly deliver converged, IP-based services. The two companies plan to jointly develop, market and deliver solutions that combine Amdocs' consulting and implementation services (the recently announced Amdocs 6 portfolio of integrated, modular products) and Microsoft communications sector products, including the Microsoft Connected Services Framework.
