Logica, the IT and business services company, has chosen Singularity exclusively to be their strategic solution of choice for WLR3. Singularity, a market leader in Business Process Management (BPM), has been chosen by Logica to provide managed services to a number of UK telecoms organizations.
The deal with Logica is the latest in a series of contracts won by Singularity in the past year, consolidating their position as the number one provider of WLR3 solutions to the UK telecommunications sector.
In 2005 the UK’s communications regulator OFCOM stipulated that BT must open up its wholesale services to independent providers. In response, BT has spun off its wholesale arm into a new company called Openreach, which will provide a ‘level playing field’ to all Telco Providers in the UK who want to buy and sell phone services to business and private customers. However, before they can access these new services the independent operators have to be able to link their internal ordering systems to Openreach using a new standard called Wholesale Line Rental 3 (WLR3).
Logica chose Singularity’s WLR3 as their strategic solution of choice based on Singularity’s expertise in WLR3 and their success delivering previous projects for their customers including Chess Telecom and Global Crossing.
“Singularity seemed like the natural solution of choice based on their size, continuing success and track record in the WLR3 field twinned with their close relationship with BT and Openreach,” said Judith Halkerston, Managing Director, Energy, Utilities and Telecoms, Logica, UK “We look forward to going live on WLR3 and to the benefits that it will bring to our clients.”
“We’re delighted to be the technology facilitator in this key area and excited to work with a company like Logica,” said Dr. Robert McGarry, Director of Telecommunications at Singularity. “As we approach the March 2011 WLR2 switch-off we continue to gain momentum as the preferred solution provider of WLR3. Working with companies of this calibre augments our credibility in this space.”
