Demonstrations and Collaborations Showcase Fiber and Wireless Broadband Support - and Turning OTT Threat into Opportunity

PISCATAWAY, New Jersey, May 19, 2011 - Telcordia ( (Booth #64), a global leader in the
development of IP, wireline, and mobile telecommunications software and
services, will showcase how its solutions are enabling communications service
providers (CSPs) to realize the potential of new market opportunities,
technologies and business models during TM Forum Management World 2011
( to be held May
in Dublin, Ireland.

Conference sessions and on-site demonstrations will show how CSPs can
reduce costs, grow revenues and provide a differentiating customer experience
using Telcordia solutions, with a particular focus on FTTx and mobile
broadband networks and services. Industry collaborations involving Telcordia
will showcase the use of standards to address two pressing CSP challenges:
automating the fulfillment of GPON services in multivendor networks and
turning the over-the-top (OTT) threat into revenue opportunities.

"Continuous innovation is the key to revenue growth and offering a strong
customer experience, underpinned by the capability to scale and meet dramatic
increase in demand," said Adan Pope, Chief Technology Officer, Telcordia.
"Management World is a great opportunity to see first-hand the breadth and
depth of understanding and support that Telcordia offers to forward-looking

At Booth 64, visitors can see the potential realized by CSPs around the
globe, supported by Telcordia's innovative solutions. Subject-matter experts
will be on hand to demonstrate Automated Plan-to-Provision for Mass Market
Broadband; support for 4G/LTE Wireless network rollout and operations; Mobile
Broadband Service Management, and more.

Telcordia's support for fiber rollouts also features, on the main
conference agenda, a presentation by Sheldon MacDonald, Director of Network
Strategy, Capital Management and Security for Bell Aliant. Mr. MacDonald will
share how Bell Aliant achieved a reduction in FTTH implementation costs
amidst a major ramp-up of their fiber access network investment.

In a "Future of the Telecom Provider"
session, Telcordia's Pat McCarthy, Vice President, Marketing for Service
Delivery Solutions, will discuss how CSPs use real-time charging and policy
to drive service innovation. Using the Indian telecom market as a backdrop,
the presentation will explore how new service creation models can enable CSPs
to achieve brand differentiation in hyper-competitive markets, including
providers who have added tens of millions of subscribers within their first
year of operations.

"To remain competitive, CSPs must be capable of offering customized plans
and roll out new services in real time to meet the personalization needs of
their subscribers," said Pat McCarthy. "This presentation will discuss how
implementing an innovative service creation model can reduce time-to-market
for new services and create a competitive advantage that will increase
customer loyalty and generate revenue growth."

In addition, Telcordia will participate in two TM Forum "Catalyst"
projects, created to showcase standards being applied to solve real-world
problems. In the first, the GPON Activation Catalyst will showcase the
industry's first practical application of an enhanced MTOSI (Multi-Technology
Operations System Interface) interoperability standard, to automate
fulfillment of GPON-based services. The project is championed by Oi and
Deutsche Telekom with support from Telcordia, Huawei and Progress Software.

The second project, the Service Delivery Broker, shows how CSPs can
unlock revenue potential by harnessing the innovation of third-party service,
content and application developers. By offering access to the CSP's product
catalog, policy, and charging control platforms, customers can be presented
with alternate product offers, new service variations, and options in real
time. The net result - pull-through and upsell for CSPs - turns the apparent
threat from OTT services into a positive revenue generator. This project is
the result of collaboration between Telcordia, Portugal Telecom, PT SAPO and

Both Catalyst projects will be on show at Forumville, at the center of
the main expo hall.
