Thailand-based CAT Telecom, a Tier-1 telecom operator; and Suvitech, a Thailand-based IT solutions and services company, have implemented Elitecore Technologies' end-to-end pre-integrated BSS stack to enable their Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE) strategy in Thailand.
Under this public-private partnership, Suvitech has been appointed as the single MVNE for CAT Telecom.
According to Elitecore, a MVNE is an organisation that provides network infrastructure and services, such as Network Sub systems, Business Support Systems, and Operations Support Systems to mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs).
Elitecore's BSS platform will help support the building of MVNE infrastructure to enable multi-brand strategy, including the launch of new partner brands and multiple MVNOs on the same stack. It offers an integrated real-time billing, policy control and customer management, which allows MVNOs to create product catalogue and enable basic services like Voice and Data bundled with digital services such as sponsored data and OTT partnerships supporting the whole range of devices, including IoT (Internet of Things)-enabled applications used by its subscribers.
"This deployment will enable the CSP to launch and support multiple MVNOs quickly, resulting in rapid innovation, brand differentiation and faster acquisition of new customers. By allowing MVNOs to take control of billing and customer relationship, the solution helps the operators create new services and bundled promotional plans with real time capabilities," said Nikhil Jain, CEO of Elitecore.
Col. Sanpachai Huvanandan, CAT's acting president, added that the MVNE platform would assist with IT back-up operations, enhance competitiveness and cut costs.
