In particular it has set its sights on becoming the OSS/BSS for the National Broadband Network. According to Powerlan, "With over 35 telecom customers worldwide, Clarity solutions currently help service providers around the world manage over 250 million subscribers."
NBN Co CEO Mike Quigley in his first press briefing last September said that NBN Co would likely go for a single OSS vendor. In February this year the company issued a call for expressions of interest for OSS/BSS.
In July Clarity hired former Alcatel Australia executive, Frank Zeichner, as account director, to, as he put it "win the NBN Co OSS business for Clarity."
He told iTWire at the time that 95 percent of the Clarity's revenues came from overseas telcos and that, until recently, it had only two active Australian customers, AAPT and Western Power. It had, however just signed Telstra's New Zealand subsidiary, TelstraClear as a customer.
Since its inception, more than 90 percent of Clarity's sales have been to the export market, taking Australian telecommunications technology overseas to countries on several continents, including Bulgaria, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Sri-Lanka, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, the UK and the USA.
Clarity has six offices around the world to develop and respond to export sales, with its main headquarters in Sydney. Clarity also works with a network of international partners to help build relationships, market and implement its solutions as well as provide local support.
