Abstract: A method of provisioning communication devices is provided which preferably includes transferring a customer order to an order database. The transferred customer order preferably includes an order sequence. A due order is then retrieved from the order database responsive to the order sequence. The due order is representative of a next customer order due. The method also includes retrieving at least one provisioning rule from a rule database having a plurality of rules stored therein and responsive to the retrieve due order, executing a provisioning script representative of instructions for provisioning communication devices to provide a customer selected service responsive to the at least one retrieved provisioning rule, and provisioning communication devices responsive to the generated provisioning script.
Abstract: The invention discloses a tokenless biometric identification computer system, comprising at least a database containing registered biometric samples of users. A comparator compares a bid biometric sample of a user to at least one registered biometric sample, the bid biometric sample obtained directly from the user during an identification process for conducting an electronic transaction by the user. A stored audio signature is associated with a transaction processor entity, which the transaction processor entity is responsible for conducting the electronic transaction. A sound generator generates an analog or digital signal from the stored audio signature, and a transducer converts the analog or digital signal to a play back audio signature.
