Norlys taps Cerillion for fibre service automation

News and Business

Danish integrated energy and telecommunications company Norlys has connected into the national wholesale fibre network using Cerillion’s enterprise BSS/OSS suite. The Cerillion solution automates service fulfilment for new fibre services, enabling Norlys to grow its addressable market as it invests in further network rollouts.

As an infrastructure owner with fibre to more than 700,000 homes, connecting into the national wholesale platform provided by the OpenNet solution makes the Norlys fibre network accessible to other Danish service providers through a standardised wholesale gateway. The new Cerillion system is helping Norlys to grow its business by operating the networks of other infrastructure owners too – a recent agreement with Thy-Mors Energi has extended its network footprint into northern Jutland.

“The successful implementation of our new BSS/OSS solution is a fantastic achievement by Cerillion and our team at Norlys, opening up significant new opportunities for us to grow and expand our infrastructure business,” said Magnus Just Olesen, vice president of Net Planning at Norlys. “Automating our fibre service fulfilment with Cerillion has created a highly scalable business model which allows us to focus on further network expansion; Cerillion actively contributes with their Telco expertise, for the benefit of our business development.”

“The structural separation of infrastructure owners from service providers has put Denmark at the forefront of the fibre broadband industry, driving network investments and delivering greater choice and better service levels to end customers,” commented Louis Hall, CEO, Cerillion plc. “Norlys is at the leading edge of this revolution, and we are delighted to be helping them to grow their business with our digital BSS/OSS solutions.”

In March 2021, Norlys awarded Emtelle a three-year contract to supply duct, accessories and fibre units worth DKK120 million.
