14 Mar 2006

Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT) has selected Clarity International, a supplier of operational support systems (OSS), to upgrade its fixed line network to a next generation network (NGN), using the latter’s strategic OSS platform. PLDT is looking for increased convergence in its three main business groups – fixed line, wireless and ePLDT – and sees the implementation of NGN as a way of simplifying its network architecture, developing fresh revenue streams and supporting closer coordination between its businesses.
