Openet has announced the launch of Openet Forge, a “cloud native digital enablement platform” designed to provide a real alternative to legacy monolithic BSS systems and enable service providers to have a more agile and faster approach to digital tranopenetsformation.
Designed for the telco cloud, the Openet Forge platform delivers the agility that digital service providers need, and includes:
- Cloud native microservices: By decomposing key software functions as micro-services, systems can more easily be adapted, upgraded and scaled. This greatly reduces deployment time and complexity and enables smaller ‘bite size’ solutions to be delivered at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional BSS.
- DevOps ready architecture: A cloud native micro services based architecture enables a DevOps approach to increase business efficiency and agility to meet the rapidly changing business needs of digital service providers.
“The evolution to digital means change at a speed we’ve never known in the traditional telecoms industry,” said Karl Whitelock, global director of strategy for Operations, Orchestration, Data Analytics and Monetization (ODAM) at Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan. “Openet has long been a solid real-time BSS provider and Forge takes them to the next level, by offering service providers a cost effective and agile approach for upgrading their IT systems to digital services readiness.”
Openet founder and CTO Joe Hogan said the Forge platform is the result of over four years of investment to build a system specifically for digital services.
“It provides a common deployment framework for all Openet solutions supporting a high performance environment for Openet’s modular software,” he said.
