Optiva, a software provider of mission-critical, cloud-native, monetization solutions to communication service providers (CSPs) globally, has secured a significant upgrade and multi-year support agreement with Afghan Wireless Communication Company (AWCC) for its Optiva Charging Engine, Voucher Management and Policy Control solutions.
AWCC needed a portfolio offering with a robust roadmap that would position and ready them for a future public cloud solution. Their upgrade provides a roadmap to the public cloud and equips AWCC with the functional capabilities to tap into the growth potential of Afghanistan. The upgrade will also help AWCC advance its growth strategy and gain capabilities for targeting new customer segments.
Also, the upgrade will allow them to eventually run their BSS stack, including real-time charging, through remote operations and management. This will improve AWCC’s resiliency and operational challenges compared to running the stack via the traditional, on-premise deployment models.
A leading telecom operator, AWCC serves more than five million customers. They provide innovative services, including as LTE, and are now in the planning stages for providing 5G services to subscribers.
