Openet has been selected by Indonesian telco operator Telkomsel to provide its Digital Business Platform (DBP).

Telkomsel will use DBP to power a range of new service offerings in the Indonesian market.

Openet, a digital business support system (BSS) company headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, will provide its digital BSS stack to enable reduced operated expenditures and give Telkomsel the resources to bring its products to market in a shorter timeframe.

Niall Norton, CEO, Openet, commented: “Our open and digital first approach to developing and delivering software will enable Telkomsel to quickly launch, manage and monetise new digital services. Openet offers a digital BSS software with a track record of consistently providing innovative solutions to some of the largest operators in the world.”

Openet’s BSS has an automated design, real-time functionalities and uses digital application program interfaces (APIs), which will all support Telkomsel in its goal to provide a digital mobile service in Indonesia.

Edward Ying, director of planning and transformation, Telkomsel, said: “As the leading digital company and digital cellular business in Indonesia Telkomsel is constantly looking for new and innovative ways to build a superior customer engagement experience in Indonesia, building on new innovative offers, and personalised services.”

Openet has recently stuck agreements with a few major names in the communication technology sphere.

In February, it entered into a partnership with Samsung Electronics to deliver 5G core network solutions.

A month later the BSS provider struck a deal with Bell, Canada’s largest telco, to deploy Openet’s Evolved Charging solution.
