by | June 9, 2015

San Francisco, CA – June 9, 2015 Swisscom, Switzerland’s leading telecommunications provider, is now utilizing ProVision, 6connect’s unique Dynamic Network Provisioning (DNP) platform, for provisioning automation of key segments of their core network infrastructure.

Swisscom ranks as one of the leading Swiss providers specializing in the integration and operation of complex IT systems, with 6.4 million mobile customers, more than one million Swisscom TV customers, and approximately two million retail broadband connections.

Utilizing ProVision allows Swisscom to decrease the required provisioning time for core network elements and increase the scalability of their API-driven management tools, which are especially crucial for maintaining accurate records of related IPv4 and IPv6 address information.

“Deploying the ProVision platform at Swisscom is an exciting project for 6connect,” said Aaron Hughes, CEO/CTO of 6connect, “Given the aggressive timeline for implementation and the magnitude of the deployment, we were both happy to see the move to production happen as planned.”

For Swisscom, the shift to a unified provisioning platform like 6connect ProVision was driven by the need to centralize infrastructure provisioning tasks and increase the availability of API-driven workflows for efficient scalability.

According to Stephan Massalt, Head of Cloud Services at Swisscom,

“Working with 6connect fits the vision and strategy of Swisscom to develop API-driven services and be able to highly automate the integration. ProVision’s unique API-driven architecture made deployment straightforward for our internal teams and provided a clear path for future integrations.”

This partnership will allow 6connect to further deploy its ProVision platform into other network infrastructure elements in addition to giving Swisscom additional flexibility as they explore other SDN/NFV technologies in the future.
