Communication Platform as a Service
The telecom industry has always been competitive but over the past few years, it has become cut throat.
At a business level, operators are struggling to grow their revenues, with Average Revenue per User (ARPU) remaining flat or even declining in some territories. New customers are scarce and operators are struggling to find new ways to acquire users while retaining the ones that they have. While this is happening, Over the Top (OTT) businesses, which rely on the connectivity that network operators provide, have been reaping the rewards of operators’network investments.
At a technical level, the imperative to upgrade networks from TDM to IP and integrate legacy networks with next-gen technologies is causing problems throughout the industry. While networks are built on standards, in their quest to achieve a competitive advantage, network equipment vendors implement these specifications in a multitude of different ways. Revisions and updates are also rolled out when it is convenient for vendors, not operators. Heterogeneous network architectures have also created a forest of siloed networks and services.
From every angle, the telecom industry is under huge pressure, pushing profitability down.
Investing in a platform to deliver new service can be a difficult decision given the cost of buying a platform and the effort involved in integrating the platform.
The Telsis Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) is a cloud based solution that allows operators to deploy services from a service cloud, without the cost or effort on deploying a dedicated solution within their network.
For Network Operators that are not ready to move to a fully cloud based solution, Telsis also offers options for deploying its Ocean Services Platform into the operator’s private cloud on an opex basis.
