Hawaiian Telcom seeks fulfillment

The offical ILEC of the Hawaiian islands might be battening down the hatches right now in anticipation of Hurricane Flossie's nearby passage, but Hawaiian Telcom also find time this week to confirm it's deploying Telcordia's service fulfillment suite.

The telco manages about 700,000 lines, and Laurie Spiegel, director of product marketing in Telcordia's global solutions group, said the carrier faces many of the same service fulfillment hurdles as larger telcos.

"Like a lot of telcos we're working with, Hawaiian Telcom still has some legacy systems in place, but you have to make a good business case to change that," Spiegel told FierceTelecom late yesterday. "Most telcos will pick a couple new services to support first; for Hawaiian Telcom, that's IP VLANs and DSL."
