Leading Integrated Communications Service Provider to Implement Oracle to Help Improve Network Management and Streamline Business Operations

* Bharti Airtel Limited (Airtel), one of India’s leading integrated communications service providers, has selected Oracle(r) Communications Network Integrity to help optimize the use of its extensive national fiber-optic network.

It will also help Airtel optimize its capital expenditures for its extensive national network.
* Oracle, a significant provider of OSS and business support systems (BSS) to Airtel since 1997, is a key component of Airtel’s Service Delivery Platform infrastructure that already touches 71 million customers and is expected to support 200 million customers by 2010.
* Airtel leverages Oracle’s comprehensive suite of communications applications, including several components of Oracle Communications Service Fulfillment Suite, Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle CRM, Oracle Fusion Middleware and Oracle Database.
