The Telcordia Fulfillment Suite comprises Telcordia® Granite Inventory, for provisioning, discovery and activation, and Telcordia® Expediter for order management. With the Fulfillment Suite, operators can easily build complex service bundles and have the tools necessary for end-to-end service design, resource management and lifecycle management. It simplifies the fulfillment process because operators can make a single change in service definition and flow that is then automatically funneled down to other support systems, instead of having to make multiple changes at each point in the process. This helps operators speed new services to market, better manage sophisticated services and seamlessly integrate existing systems, which results in increased network efficiencies and lower total cost of ownership.

Telcordia Granite Inventory includes intelligent inventory, provisioning automation, and data synchronization functions in a single, open, flexible service fulfillment solution. By coupling an enterprise-wide view of services, application-specific resources, and the network with a comprehensive set of provisioning capabilities, the suite puts operators firmly in control of their growth. With it, operators can efficiently manage the rollout of new transaction-oriented services; develop network configurations for complex equipment and circuit layout records, use standard templates for the assignment of resources; and gain faster, more accurate provisioning and repair with integrated activation.
