WebMate® ATM (Automated Translations Management)
WebMate ATM is designed to mechanize the work flow between a client's routing database and the C.O. switch (or switch's "shadow" database). Orders for new code openings, trunk group re-homes, and new NPAs are retrieved from the routing OSS, additional data is acquired from other systems as necessary, and the appropriate translations are created and inserted into the switch, either directly or through a designated support system. Orders may be flowed automatically or held for technician review.
WebMate CMS (Carrier Management System)
WebMate CMS is designed to mechanize the process of implementing carrier orders with minimal technician intervention. Network routing orders (NRO) related to carrier access are retrieved from the routing database. Additional data is acquired from other systems as necessary, and the appropriate translations for routing, screening, and charging are created. Translations are then inserted into the switch, either directly or through a designated support system. An integral audit facility insures that not only new orders but also existing related translations are valid.
WebMate CTM (Complex Translations Management)
WebMate CTM is designed to mechanize the provisioning of complex business orders in the C.O. switch. Orders including DID, PRI, centrex, and others are retrieved from the business database (e.g. MBOS) and validated to ensure that the requested work is correct. Additional data is acquired from other systems as necessary, including TIRKS, WFA, or the network element itself. The appropriate translations are created and inserted into the switch, either directly or through a designated support system. Orders may be flowed automatically or held for technician review. If invalid data or errors are encountered, the order is pushed back upstream to the necessary system or group.
WebMate TPS (Trunk Provisioning System)
WebMate TPS mechanizes the provisioning of trunk additions, rearrangements, and disconnects. Trunking orders from the appropriate systems are retrieved, validated for accuracy of data, and translated into the required recent change messages. The application can create these translations itself or utilize existing operations support systems, such as a routing database and/or mechanized translations system. Using the automated flow-through capability of APRIL-Plus, these messages are input to the C.O. switch and the order is completed in all relevant 'upstream' systems.
APRIL-Plus (Automated Processing of Recent Change Input Letters)
APRIL-Plus is a switch interface that automates and controls
the input of translation messages into most common Telco switch types.
Currently supported switch types include: 1AESS and 5ESS (Alcatel-Lucent), AXE
(Ericsson), DMS (Nortel), and EWSD (Siemens). In addition, the APRIL-Plus
application provides data verification, switch verification, and an audit
trail of accountability for every switch transaction. Although APRIL-Plus
comes with a seamless interface to the Mechanized Translation System (MTS)
by Alcatel-Lucent, it can be driven by any application capable of generating recent
change messages, including technician-created files.
