CenturyLink supports the Networx program with a comprehensive and secure Operational Support Systems (OSS)
It performs a wide range of integrated functions including:
- Service ordering
- Customer support
- Network management
- Trouble management
- Inventory management
- Program management
Our OSS consists of tightly integrated systems that support commercial and government agency customers today. Our embedded systems use a component-based architecture that facilitates building interfaces linked to subcontractor and other vendor systems. The Control Center Networx Portal also provides access to the back-end OSS for convenient availability when you need it. All Networx products and services can be ordered via the Portal through a series of Web forms and flow-through interfaces.
