Telecom System Integration Infrastructure
SWITCHgate is a Generic, Component Based, System Integration solution infrastructure developed by Praxa for the Telecommunications industry. It reflects Praxa’s experience from continuous involvement in development and support of telecom middleware solutions since 1993.
In the Telecom domain SWITCHgate provides middleware for service activation, subscriber provisioning and back office/network ops maintenance operations.
SWITCHgate solutions typically form the fulfillment/service provisioning middleware between upstream OSS/BSS systems (Order Management, Billing, Inventory, Network Ops etc) and telephony network elements (mobile, fixed, IN, VOIP), VAS gateways, other vendor/reseller systems etc.
SWITCHgate solution defines and projects abstract view of telecom services to be provisioned on downstream network elements, and makes these projections accessible to upstream OSS/BSS systems over generic provisioning interfaces.
SWITCHgate solutions have been implemented for Telecom vendors in Australia (SingTel-Optus), the UK (Energis) and New Zealand (Vodafone NZ).
