The delivery includes BECS's Plan and build tool for network documentation, resource management, configuration assurance and software management. BECS also enables zero-touch configuration of network elements in Com Hem's multi-vendor environment. This means out-of-the-box element deployment and automated configuration control of network events regardless of equipment manufacturer.

"We are indeed pleased that after a tough evaluation process Com Hem has chosen us to deliver the network management platform", says Ulf Avrin, CEO PacketFront Software. "We will create a network environment for Com Hem with low costs and large efficiencies in their operations thanks to a high level of automation and control".

"We are very excited to work with PacketFront Software. They have extensive experience of deploying FTTH networks, knowledge that is reflected in their BECS product" says Peter Eriksson, Manager OSS at Com Hem. "BECS provides complete data integrity and network control enabling a fully automated network deploy process. The system is flexible, integrates well with our existing BSS stack and gives us tools to develop our own functions, making the system adaptable to future needs."
