Software services provider Amdocs will partner with IT giant Microsoft to provide cloud solutions for communication service providers (CSPs).
The new cloud services will help CSPs roll out products based on different technology domains such as data, artificial intelligence (AI), virtualised networking and internet-of-things(including eSIM) and media, according to the company.
“As the communications and media industries merge, CSPs are jockeying to bring fresh, new offerings to their brand to retain and grow their customer base and gain market share,” said Gary Miles, chief marketing officer, Amdocs.
“With today’s expanded agreement, CSPs can now offer a one-stop shop of new and differentiated cloud services to drive growth, stickiness and value-add, while also streamlining operations, improving service agility and reducing complexity,” he said.
The company will also be adding a new scalable, Hadoop-based data management platform and self-service visualisation and reporting solution via the Azure platform.
In May, South Korea-based telephone company KT Corporation had partnered with Amdocs to launch and monetise innovative 5G services for end consumers and enterprises. As part of the deal, KT Corporation will use Amdocs’ service monetisation and convergent charging solution for its recently-launched 5G commercial services.
