- provisioning (p.58): Dynamic provisioning is the ability of service providers to adjust features and services to meet a customer's rapidly changing needs. Traditionally, when a customer wanted a new service or more bandwidth, the provider sent a technician to the customer's site or to a remote location to reconfigure equipment manually. Truck rolls were costly and time-consuming. Dynamic provisioning is a far more cost-effective approach that allows the provider to turn up services or reallocate bandwidth remotely under software control. (†1426)
