Technology Agreement Gives Communications Service Providers More Control of New Product Launches Across Multiple Domains and Multi Vendor Networks

TORONTO, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 03/31/14 -- Sigma Systems, the leader in catalog-driven Idea-to-Install products, today announced it has signed a technology agreement with NetYCE that will accelerate new service fulfilment for complex business data services including Carrier Ethernet, Metro Ethernet and layer 2/3 VPN business connectivity. The companies will work together to ensure seamless integration of the Sigma Idea-to-Install product portfolio and the NetYCE platform for Design Driven Networking.

"The Sigma Idea-to-Install portfolio provides full automation of service fulfillment for communications service providers, eliminating the need for the hard-coding that is required with many legacy back-office systems.

NetYCE's expertise in network automation, coupled with Sigma ensures that CSPs can finally automate end to end fulfillment of business data services in both traditional, SDN and NFV networks," said Catherine Michel, CSO and VP Product, Sigma Systems.

The NetYCE platform offers a robust commercial platform with multi-vendor, -tenant -domain and -technology support for service providers and enterprises. Its unique Design Drive Networking approach offers a single source for all networking knowledge, processes and architectures are managed to fully standardize and automate networks. When deployed along with the Sigma Idea-to-Install portfolio, operators can ensure rapid, accurate provisioning of services across all networks.

"CSP's have come to realize that network automation is key. They want to be able to automate both their existing legacy networks and have a transition strategy to implement new technologies such as SDN and NFV. This is exactly what NetYCE offers," said Wim Gerrits, CEO of NetYce.
