Key Drivers of Auto-Provisioning/Activation
Having multiple activation systems harms data integrity
Data mismatch causes increased rates of order fallout, and reduces customer satisfaction.
Long time to deliver customer services
Manual work and lengthy provisioning and activation processes creates errors and increases the time your customers need to wait for their services.
Slow time to market
New service introductions are delayed due to complexity of new services. Existing provisioning systems are unable to handle and keep up with complexity of new service offerings.

Service Activation Management
Create and manage your service portfolio in real-time through a single activation gateway.
Initiate, suspend, update or terminate services and features, all in real-time.
Easily automate all your network element programming. All programming requests are efficiently prioritized in order with minimum overhead to save you time, money, and resources on all activations.
Configurable Business Logic
Enabling rapid launch of new end-user services regardless of technology or vendor.
Flexible connection scripts support virtually any connection path to network elements. This can include multiple different technologies with authentication at any or all points and connection fail-over.
Fraud and Revenue Management
Audit logs enable you to identify and investigate inaccuracies between your billing systems and the network.
All sensitive configuration data, such as network element authentication data, and audit log data is encrypted.
The automation of network element programming also ensures consistency and that subscribers are being accurately billed for the services and features that have been provisioned.
Service Order Logging
User definable service and resource order history and comprehensive audit logs empower customer support efforts.
All interaction with network elements are logged and fully audited to provide a complete history of updates or actions.
OpenSwitchGate captures extensive audit logs including the complete lifecycle of every request. All interactions with network elements are logged and and retained for a user specified length of time. The audit log viewer comes with advanced filtering and search capabilities.
Device Programming Error Recovery
Failed requests can be retried on a user specified schedule and failed commands can be modified and resubmitted.
Failed programming commands can be modified and resubmitted to the network element for certain types of failures to reduce the command fallout rate.
Every connection to a network element is controlled by powerful connection scripts that provide connection fail-over and complex multi-step connections such as authentication on intermediate servers.
Network Element Adapters
OpenSwitchGate includes network element adapters for more than 140 different types and models of network elements, so you can ensure the solution will support your business needs.
Our adapters are developed specifically to communicate with specific network elements, so they have the ability to authenticate, program, and interpret responses it receives from the network element in any situation.
The large selection of existing adapters and ease of developing new ones means that OpenSwitchGate can become the single activation point of connection for your entire network. This eases integration, eliminates manual programming, and the number of connections required for each network element.
