Vitria Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:VITR VITR Vitria Technologies (stock symbol)
VITR Visible and Thermal Infrared Radiometer ), a leading ebusiness platform provider, today announced that Rhythms NetConnections Rhythms NetConnections Inc. (Former NASDAQ: RTHM) was in the business of providing broadband local-access communication services to large enterprises, telecommunications carriers and their internet service provider (ISP) affiliates and other ISPs. Inc. (Nasdaq:RTHM), a North American provider of broadband communication services, has joined the Vitria Business Network. The Vitria Business Network is a network of Vitria-enabled trading communities and their exchanges, hubs and trading partners. The Vitria Business Network facilitates quick and easy electronic access to a rapidly expanding network of product and service providers serving the business needs of multiple industries, including telecommunications, high-tech supply chain, utilities, healthcare, financial services The examples and perspective in this article or section may not represent a worldwide view of the subject.

By enabling fast, easy, low-cost electronic bonding between businesses and the exchanges and hubs of their customers, suppliers and partners, the Vitria Business Network will help Rhythms to streamline and automate its service supply chain and reduce the time and cost required to bring new products and services to market.
"We are pleased to be a part of the Vitria Business Network," said Michael Lanier, CIO CIO: see American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations.
(Chief Information Officer) The executive officer in charge of information processing in an organization. of Rhythms. "The Vitria Business Network will help us to continue to build dynamic relationships with channel partners by reducing the complexity, time and cost associated with forming new relationships. We expect operational productivity to increase as we aggressively deploy our electronic bonding capabilities, and system-to-system integration between our partners will reduce the need for human intervention in the provisioning of DSL DSL

Broadband digital communications connection that operates over standard copper telephone wires. It requires a DSL modem, which splits transmissions into two frequency bands: the lower frequencies for voice (ordinary orders on a large scale."
Rhythms, a charter member of the Vitria Business Network, has deployed Vitria BusinessWare for DSL, Vitria's integrated ebusiness solution for end-to-end ordering and flow-through provisioning of DSL-based broadband services. The DSL provisioning process requires complex interactions with multiple business partners across the telco supply chain, including Data Local Exchange Carriers (DLECs), ISPs and Incumbent Local Exchange Carriers (ILECs). Each of these companies have their own separate operational support systems (OSS Oss (ôs), city (1994 pop. 62,141), North Brabant prov., S Netherlands; chartered 1399. It is a significant industrial center. Manufactures include meat products, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, electrical equipment, and metalware. ) that must be carefully coordinated to provide DSL service to the consumer. By electronically bonding with these partners over the Internet, coordinating the flow of information between each partner using pre-defined business process templates, and communicating information in a standard format which each partner understands, Rhythms has formed an electronic business community which provides seamless, reliable and responsive provisioning of DSL services throughout North America North America, third largest continent (1990 est. pop. 365,000,000), c.9,400,000 sq mi (24,346,000 sq km), the northern of the two continents of the Western Hemisphere. .
A critical element in Rhythms' system was the adoption of a standard format for defining the information flow between partners over the Internet. Messages are based on documents written in the eXtensible Markup Language See XML.
(language, text) Extensible Markup Language - (XML) An initiative from the W3C defining an "extremely simple" dialect of SGML suitable for use on the World-Wide Web.
http://w3.org/XML/. (XML), with Document Type Definitions (DTDs) specific to the DSL supply chain, that can be interpreted by all Rhythms' partners easily and quickly. This dramatically reduces the complexity of creating and maintaining new business linkages and allows rapid scaling of the electronic community to new channel partners. BusinessWare for DSL incorporates these industry standard DTD's, which were developed in conjunction with Rhythms' industry expertise.
"The adoption of standard DTDs is key to minimizing the scaling issues associated with provisioning orders through our carrier and channel partners," said Lanier. "The interface specifications that we took a leadership position in developing with Vitria allow us to reduce the time, cost and human touch associated with new partner relationships, thus making it easy to do business with us."
The BusinessWare for DSL solution also includes pre-defined process models (PIMs) that manage and automate critical processes, such as order pre-qualification, order entry, and order status. These PIMs are based on the emerging xDML (eXtensible DSL Markup Language markup language
Standard text-encoding system consisting of a set of symbols inserted in a text document to control its structure, formatting, or the relationship among its parts. The most widely used markup languages are SGML, HTML, and XML. ) standard, designed to support the flow and management of transactions throughout the DSL supply chain. The PIMs provide full connectivity with xDML, enabling companies' existing OSSs to accept, process, and generate XML. Vitria is a co-sponsor of the xDML standard.
"Rhythms' success is an excellent example of what can be achieved with the right combination of technology and industry expertise," said JoMei Chang, CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. and president of Vitria. "The adoption of de facto standards and BusinessWare in the telco supply chain facilitates rapid growth as well as opportunities for new services and partner linkages as the trading network evolves."
