Optiva, a revenue management software supplier, announced that Vodafone Idea has initiated a pilot to deploy its Optiva Charging Engine BSS solution on universal cloud.
Vodafone Idea has more than 320 million subscribers in India.
The pilot to deploy Optiva Charging Engine BSS solution on the 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.
The 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. There will be no change to upgrade or re-platform while transitioning from a private cloud to a public cloud.
“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,” said Danielle Royston, CEO of Optiva.
