Telecoms solutions provider Huawei will support KPN in its IT and business transformation program.
KPN, a telecommunications and ICT service provider in the Netherlands, has signed an agreement with Huawei for this programme that is aimed to replace multiple legacy IT Business Support System.
The IT and business transformation programme from KPN includes a single next generation converged BSS solution for the retail and wholesale markets in the Netherlands.
Huawei has worked with KPN before and it was chosen by KPN's subsidiary Telfort in 2008 to provide a Next-Generation Business Support System (NGBSS) solution to replace its legacy BSS systems.
This partnership was successful and Huawei was eventually selected by the KPN Group to build and manage an international hosted Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE) platform serving customers in Belgium, France and Spain.
The 2008 partnership between Telfort and KPN resulted in a successful, phased implementation and launch of post-paid in 2010.
This was followed by pre-paid and wholesale services launched in 2011.
The new NGBSS solution was successful in addressing business objectives, including total cost of reduction, improved time-to-market and enhanced customer experience.
Huawei has also been chosen as a partner to replace the BSS system for the consumer and wholesale markets for the KPN Germany operator, E-plus.
"As KPN's strategic partner, we are very excited about this collaboration as it represents our commitment to providing leading technical solutions and services to support our partners in the smooth realisation of IT transformations and securing business success," said Kevin Tao, president of Huawei of the West European region.
