ADC, Telcordia Team Up

Minneapolis-ADC Telecommunications Inc. and Telcordia Technologies Inc. have formed an alliance that will combine their software, hardware and consulting services.

The two will pool products and services aimed at speeding the delivery of new and enhanced services offered by emerging telecommunications-service providers.

Telcordia will plan and design network architecture using its suite of consulting services and software applications, which will be combined with an assortment of consulting services and software products offered by ADC.

ADC will demonstrate its flow-through provisioning services at SuperComm 2000 next month. The demo will showcase ordering and billing software, as well as the delivery of both via a Telcordia "Network Configuration Manager" within a typical emerging or entrenched local-exchange carrier.
