Cable Bahamas Selects Sigma Systems for Next-Generation Voice and Broadband Service Fulfillment

Leading Video and Broadband Operator in Bahamas Upgrades Its OSS Solutions With Sigma Systems' Device Provisioning Manager

TORONTO--(Marketwire - March 24, 2011) - Sigma Systems, an industry leader in Advanced IP Service Fulfillment solutions, and Cable Bahamas, the country's largest provider of broadband and cable TV services, announced today that the operator will upgrade its Operational Support System (OSS) with Sigma Systems' Device Provisioning Manager. Cable Bahamas will utilize Sigma Systems' Device Provisioning Manager to support its voice and broadband service delivery.

Cable Bahamas has a highly advanced broadband network, high-speed Internet subscribers and customers utilizing international and domestic private line data circuits, IP transit and telecom/data co-location.

Device Provisioning Manager, which is part of the Sigma Systems next-generation OSS portfolio of IP service fulfillment solutions, will allow Cable Bahamas to:

  • Simplify activation and management of its voice and high-speed Internet services as part of its upcoming triple-play service bundle, the first such offering from a wholly-owned Bahamian provider
  • Cost-effectively scale as its subscriber base grows
  • Auto-configure and provision business and residential customer-premises equipment, including PacketCable, SIP, DOCSIS 3.0 and IPv6 devices

"Cable Bahamas has been dedicated to delivering the most advanced IP services to every Bahamian," said Anthony Butler, CEO of Cable Bahamas. "With Sigma Systems' Device Provisioning Manager supporting the provisioning, activation and management of our existing services, we will be able to automate our voice and broadband services, and look to deliver new services, such as video, and possibly a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) offering."

"Over the past year, Sigma Systems has been partnering with a growing group of next-generation operators in Latin America and the Caribbean that are committed to offering their customers the latest service innovations available," said Tim Spencer, president and COO of Sigma Systems. "Cable Bahamas provides another example of the regions' advancement of IP services. By working together, Cable Bahamas and Sigma Systems can continue to bring innovative services to the country."

Alejandro Couce, Sigma Systems' head of Caribbean and Latin America region, added: "Our goal at Sigma Systems is to help Cable Bahamas improve its subscribers' experience and bring service innovations to customers faster than ever before."
