AsiaInfo-Linkage, an Asian supplier of BSS systems, today announced the global launch of its Veris Open Operational Platform (O²P), a collaboration platform for mobile operators that “transforms Over-The-Top (OTT) services from threats into new operator revenue streams.”
O²P enables operators to boost revenues by converging their products with those of the OTT players who in turn get access to operators’ advanced back-office IT capabilities.
O2P is “built to simplify and streamline the partnering process.” The platform supports a variety of retail and wholesale business models between operators and OTTs. Its design ensures that operators can easily scale the number of partners they can work with, and vastly reduces the complexities of engaging with multiple partners. O²P eradicates the IT complications involved in forming and operating multi-party collaborations, and can save more than 50% of operational costs for operators.
“It’s clear that operators want to support standardization and industry-wide initiatives, but they also need to create competitive advantage from their OTT partnerships. That means they need to offer more value than other operators, and they need to be easier to work with,” says Dr Andy Tiller, vice president of product marketing for AsiaInfo.
