Comcast Inks Auspice Software Pact

11/08/2004 7:06 AM Eastern

Auspice Corp. has signed a licensing deal with Comcast Corp. for software-management tools that the nation’s largest MSO plans to use across its broadband services.

The deal is an extension of a pact Auspice signed with AT&T Broadband years ago, and it allows Comcast access to various Auspice software products across all of its markets. Comcast acquired AT&T Broadband in November 2002.

“Auspice’s platform and products offer the functionality, timely implementation, extensibility and cost-effectiveness that we need to deploy advanced broadband multiservices,” Comcast senior vice president of national communications engineering and operations Charlotte Field said.

The pact is a comprehensive, multiyear licensing arrangement, Auspice VP of sales and business development William Yan said. “It covers their two national-operations centers, field support and customer-support call centers,” he added.

The deal triggers Comcast’s use of any part of Auspice’s “TLX” automation platform and “OpsLogic” service suite the MSO chooses. That suite encompasses a number of tool sets.
