To do so, we recognized the need for a future-proofed, ready-to-adapt OSS and BSS infrastructure," said Tom Riley, president and chief executive officer of Crossroads Wireless. "GCI has provided us with a roadmap that will ensure our ability to effectively serve our customers."

GCI delivered a comprehensive technical and financial analysis of the OSS/BSS elements required to support Crossroads' LECs. Underlying this delivery was a "Power to Adapt" framework to ensure Crossroads' ability to minimize complexity, streamline processes, and provide state-of-the-art service unlike what the rural community has ever seen before.

"We appreciate that Crossroads recognizes that we over-delivered on their expectations. Our values are fundamentally aligned -- commitment to customer service excellence," said Kevin Elder, global head of GCI's Telecommunications group.
