the language of efficiency
Imagine throwing away 20% of your capital expenditure, every single year. Though it may sound hard to believe, that is reality for a surprising number of service providers—to the tune of some $65 billion lost, industry-wide. The culprit? Poor communication. Mislaid assets and mismanaged inventory is a direct result of critical data being scattered throughout your organization in a variety of formats, managed by different business functions. This makes sharing information and effective collaboration difficult, if not impossible.
Streamlining data management and creating a more productive working environment, requires collaboration. Providing optimum service delivery and financial performance requires real-time insights and network control. All of that is possible when you use a common language.
iconectiv TruOps Common Language® keeps everyone working together. For service providers whose network and operations management involves an overwhelming amount of moving parts, Common Language promotes consistency. How? By standardizing the way everyone in your ecosystem refers to locations, equipment, circuit paths and service use.
Common Language also makes complex network and operations management crystal clear by removing data ambiguity between departments with unique naming conventions, coding and labeling practices. As a result, costly mistakes are avoided and efficiency between business divisions, corporate partners and even vendors is dramatically increased.
What efficient organizations have in common is…Common Language.

bring order to the chaos
To provide optimum service delivery and financial performance you need real-time insights and network control. Common Language can help by ensuring the flow of consistent and accurate information throughout your organization’s infrastructure by providing a common:
- Name for locations, equipment, connections, services and virtual functions
- View of the network across business operations and finance, as well as partner, customer and vendor functions
- Way to enable process optimization through automated operations and ecosystem access
The days of hosting network information across multiple corporate systems are over. Common Language centralizes all your information, so you can simplify data maintenance and eliminate duplication and errors.
The Common Language code set includes:
- CLEI™ codes for equipment—Enables accurate inventory identification for improved asset inventory management and financial reporting
- CLLI™ codes for location—Provides a shared and consolidated view of network locations across all service provider organizations and the industry
- CLCI™, CLFI™, NC/NCI™ codes for connections—Identifies customers and providers
- USOC & FID codes for service information—Offers consistent identification of services and their technical attributes leading to efficient and accurate provisioning and billing
With Common Language you can standardize and police the data infrastructure by defining common rules for the physical labeling of network equipment and maintaining data dictionaries. Utilizing consistent equipment ordering codes and accessing a central online database of equipment characteristics to facilitate equipment specifications allows you to maximize efficiencies, eliminate human errors and facilitate the identification, tracking and monetizing of equipment assets intra-company and across country lines.
With Common Language you can ensure process automation by confirming that the right network service relates to the right device, via the right third party, which helps rationalize spending by calculating total cost of ownership (TCO) on a per-network, per-vendor, per-product basis. At the same time, the shared view of network connections allows you to combine real-time network data with accurate financial information to increase efficiencies.
With Common Language you can understand how every investment performs and plan the next spend accordingly. This allows you to immediately locate compatible replacements for priority fixes, locate and reuse equipment to reduce waste and environmental impact, manage recalls and reduce spare inventory with no impact on service levels.
