PLANO, Texas, July 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Acision  Innovation Network partnership  enables  Alltel Wireless  to automatically provision  and update  handsets and  eliminate traditional  manual provisioning  processes and  costs

Acision, a world leader in mobile data, in partnership with Accuris Networks - a member of the Acision Innovation Network - will provide Alltel Wireless with Accuris Networks' OTA (over the air) solution, to enable the operator to deliver value added services to subscribers such as handset activation and national and international roaming updates. Acision plays a key role in integrating Accuris' platform with the operator network, ensuring a smooth and flawless installation.

Acision's deployment at Alltel Wireless, a provider of wireless services to customers across six states in the U.S., will enable the carrier to use Accuris Networks' OTA platform, AccuPROFILEâ„¢, to automatically activate, update and reprogram all handsets in use in their network.  This includes updating Preferred Roaming Lists (PRL) to enable both national and international roaming as well as enabling the prevention of handset cloning.

This innovative approach enables operators like Alltel Wireless to provision devices themselves, while addressing network coverage and congestion challenges. This helps to reduce OPEX costs and handset manufacturing provisioning fees, while saving time and money getting new devices and services to market and improving the user experience.  

"Alltel Wireless is committed to delivering an exceptional customer experience," said Ken Borner, Vice President of Engineering and Operations, Alltel Wireless. "Acision and Accuris will provide technical resources that facilitate provisioning, accelerate solution development and testing, and enable other operational efficiencies for Alltel."

"This Alltel Wireless deployment is validation of the power of the Acision Innovation Network, which is designed to address the needs of operators by aligning Acision's unmatched experience in mobile data services with companies like Accuris Networks," said Claudia Grandjean, SVP and GM for North America at Acision. "Through this partnership, Acision is able to leverage Accuris Networks' expertise to enable Alltel Wireless to more efficiently deliver services to subscribers, resulting in cost savings and enhanced customer quality of experience."

"The Acision Innovation Network provides Accuris Networks with a unique opportunity to put our technology to work to meet the challenges facing operators like Alltel Wireless," said David Reeder, Vice President Business Development, Accuris Networks. "With Acision's support and cooperation, Accuris Networks is making it possible for Alltel Wireless to realize the full potential of the provisioning, roaming and updating capabilities that provide subscribers with a reliable and enhanced user experience."
