Strategic Imperatives Connects IDNet to Next Generation Broadband from BT Wholesale.

ISP IDNet has successfully launched their automated 21CN broadband proposition based on the BT Wholesale WBC (Wholesale Broadband Connect) platform using Evo21, the VNE platform from Strategic Imperatives.

Wholesale Broadband Connect (WBC) and Wholesale Broadband Managed Connect (WBMC) are the 21CN Data Services being rolled out by BT Wholesale as part of the 21st Century Network Program. These products enable ISPs to provide 24+ ADSL to their end users over the BT Wholesale network.

Drawing on its experience in enabling over 120 Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Communication Providers (CPs) to connect and transact with the BT Group, Strategic Imperatives has recently launched a suite of integration solutions and specialist support packages for organisations that wish to benefit from 21CN based B2B data and voice products.

Strategic Imperatives’ Evo21 Platform for WBC and WBMC allows organisations like IDNet to rapidly take advantage of the Business-to-Business (B2B) interface offered by BT Wholesale, streamlining customer acquisition, broadband account management and fault tracking through automation. Strategic Imperatives’ proposition includes rapid connectivity and product establishment along with simplified B2B access, operational support, reporting and monitoring for WBC and WBMC.

“IDNet customers have always benefited from our commitment to making the latest technologies, communication and data products available to them.” said Tim Davis, Director at IDNet, “The increased level of automation for 21CN products through our partnership with Strategic Imperatives means that we can offer the highest level of service to our customers, including the option for complete autonomy through our self service portal”

Evo21 for WBC and WBMC complements Strategic Imperatives’ current product sets for Local Loop Unbundling (LLU), Wholesale Line Rental 3 (WLR3) and Next Generation Access (NGA).

Jamie McCrindle, CTO at Strategic Imperatives commented: “The addition of WBC and WBMC integration to the Strategic Imperatives solutions portfolio enhances its ability to provide convergent solutions to ISPs and CPs requiring a homogenous set of interfaces into the various voice and data products both from the BT Group as well as the wider Network Operator community.”
