Cloud-native revenue management software provider, Optiva has announced a strategic partnership with Vodafone Idea Ltd (VIL). The network provider has initiated a pilot to deploy Optiva’s Charging Engine BSS solution on VIL’s universal cloud.
Optiva believes that with a base of more than 320 million subscribers, speed, scalability and cost reduction are key to achieve its strategic business goals and maintain success in one of the most competitive markets.
Optiva has also understood that VIL is presently committed to delivering a rich customer experience while building a robust, future-ready (5G) network, and the network service provider is partnering with the best global vendors and equipment suppliers to deploy new age technologies with built-in customizations and novel innovations.
“We are delighted that Vodafone Idea has selected Optiva. We look forward to supporting them in their strategic initiative of building a future-ready, agile and scalable network that is robust and efficient to run,” commented Danielle Royston, CEO of Optiva.
The pilot to deploy Optiva Charging Engine BSS solution on the VIL’s universal cloud is aligned with the focus of Vodafone Idea. The pilot design includes a two-step process — first on a Kubernetes-enabled private cloud and then an option for a future, second step on a public cloud platform.
Royston further opined that an efficient and cost-effective innovation, successful commercial deployment of the public cloud solution has the potential to offer 10 times increased speed and scale at a fraction of the cost of conventional solutions currently available. Further, there will be no change to upgrade or re-platform while transitioning from a private cloud to a public cloud whenever required.
