Openet, a global player in the supply of real-time BSS (business support systems), has announced Japanese systems integrator NTT Advanced Technology Corp. (NTT-AT) is its latest reseller partner.
The deal will extend Openet’s reach into the NTT Group and significantly enhance its commercial footprint across Asia. NTT-AT, which represents the technological core of the NTT Group, will re-sell Openet products and solutions to all subsidiary operators within the NTT Group.
NTT-AT chose to partner with Openet after successfully trialling a series of Policy and Control functions across NFV environments. By integrating solutions where NFV techniques are applied to OSS/BSS enables NTT Group to deliver on the promises of NFV, such as system agility, faster time to market, reduced TCO, increased elasticity, and greater service availability. Following the successful test, NTT-AT will look to roll Openet’s proven virtualised BSS technology out across the NTT Group.
“Having rigorously tested Openet’s virtualised BSS solutions, we are extremely confident of the immediate value it will deliver to the NTT Group as a whole,” said Masayoshi Nagao, Sales Chief of Openet Team at NTT-AT. “The level of support offered by Openet will afford us the ability to build increasingly agile systems to provide service diversity and faster time to market for NTT subsidiary operators.”
“Our partnership with NTT-AT provides us with a variety of new access points into one of the world’s most innovative operator groups,” said Cyril Dolan, GVP of Indirect Channels at Openet.
“Our market leading virtualised BSS technology will deliver a wide variety of benefits and new revenue streams for subsidiaries within the NTT Group and clearly demonstrate the mutual value of our global partner program. We actively welcome new entrants to this program,” added Cyril Dolan. “We believe partnerships between specialist systems integrators like NTT-AT and Openet offer CSPs the best opportunity to build an agile BSS environment.”
