1. An umbrella term used in many Telecom companies that covers the process of adding a new service or expanding an existing service.

2. A catchy term that clueless sales guys use to refer to the deployment of complicated services when talking with their even-more-clueless customers. Engineers sometimes use this term will sales guys and customers as well, to avoid the confusion caused by explaining the technical nature of their work.
Example 1

You: "I ordered this internet circuit three months ago; where the hell is it?"
Internet Service Provider: "Oh, it appears there was an error in the provisioning process and that circuit was dropped to Alabama instead of New York.
You: "FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU..."

Example 2

Customer: "When is our internets and servers and things going to be up and running?
Sales douche: "Well sir, our engineers are almost done provisioning these items for you. Isn't that right, engineer?"
Engineer: "FML... Yes, I will be 'provisioning' your entire IT infrastructure by the end of the week, like our sales guy promised on my behalf."
Customer: "That word sounded fancy and not too technical! I feel better now."
