The Comptel® Fulfilment solution will be integrated into Maroc Telecom's OSS by Atos Origin to automate the activation of DSL services to Maroc Telecom's customers. This will meet the rapid growth in demand for broadband in Morocco.

“In 2005 our broadband customer base increased by 300 percent - from 60,000 to 242,000 says Fadhel Kraiem CIO – Maroc Telecom. To respond to this fast growth, we decided to re-organise the fulfilment process and re-new our IT systems. We chose Comptel® Fulfilment solution because it let us pick just the right functionality for our requirements”.

Stream-lining the process with the Comptel® Fulfilment solution will bring Maroc Telecom benefits in terms of cost, time and quality of provisioning. The solution will enable the sales to improve customer commitment and keep a high customer satisfaction level.

The Comptel® Fulfilment solution includes several individual, configurable modules. Maroc Telecom is deploying the provisioning workflow, database for network resources, adapters for auto-configuration of network elements and a ticketing system for manual work.

The solution enables Maroc Telecom to:

  • Define and change the provisioning process
  • Find the right DSLAM site and available port and assigning it to the user
  • Auto-configure the live DSLAMs in the network
  • Issue and track work order tickets for manual installation and engineering work.
