OpenCloud selected by Monaco Telecom for virtualised VoLTE
Enabling flexible service innovation key to subscriber-centric competitive differentiation
Cambridge UK, 16 February 2016 – OpenCloud announced today that its Sentinel VoLTE product has been selected for deployment within Monaco Telecom’s virtualised network.
OpenCloud will provide the application servers to deliver multi-media telephony services (MMTel AS) and the service centralisation and continuity applications (SCC AS) which enables the interoperation and handover of calls between the legacy network and the VoLTE/IMS/LTE network.
The open nature of OpenCloud’s product enables Monaco Telecom to freely develop innovative service extensions without dependency on the vendor. Monaco Telecom anticipates using in-house teams to leverage this capability and create more competitive service offerings to address the specific needs of the market in Monaco.
“Monaco Telecom’s customers demand more than standard communication services. The open flexibility of OpenCloud’s solution provides the perfect platform on which Monaco Telecom can develop new services to delight its customers and extend our own competitive advantage,” said Thierry Berthouloux, CTO at Monaco Telecom.
“Whether added alongside existing inflexible VoLTE equipment or, as in this case, delivering the full MMTel and SCC capability, OpenCloud is providing its customers with the power to differentiate,” said Phillip Stubbs, OpenCloud CTO. “Delivering the power of openness has been OpenCloud’s mission from the start, as has the vision that software-based telecoms products would become the norm. OpenCloud is pleased to play a role in the virtualisation of Monaco Telecom’s network, supporting the delivery of new communication services to its subscribers,” Stubbs finished.
