Cataleya unveils wholesale business PaaS

06 March 2018 | James Pearce


Cataleya has announced the launch of its new wholesale business platform as a service (PaaS) which integrates switching, rating, routing and billing cloud solutions, enabling wholesalers to start operating within a matter of days.

Orchid Cloud is a cloud solution which utilizes the unique features from Cataleya’s carrier grade Orchid One SBC platform, which serves as the core switching infrastructure. Paired with a powerful routing, rating and billing engine, we believe it will create a very comprehensive yet competitive solution for wholesalers, claimed Andreas Hipp, CEO Cataleya. 

Orchid Cloud is set up in a fully redundant manner for carrier grade reliability. It was built and is operated by Cataleya itself through a secured high-quality network of multiple connected Orchid One SBC pairs hosted in data centres around three regions in the world. 

Using this innovative wholesale platform, wholesalers will be able to go live within a matter of days and enjoy a feature rich and highly scalable wholesale voice business platform and only pay for what they use, Cataleya claims Wholesalers will only need to subscribe to a minimum of minutes per month and pay for the actual minutes sent through the system.

“To make the onboarding simple, we also offer a 14-day trial “try before you buy”, and if a client needs a short-term solution, we also offer contract terms as short as 3 months,” added Hipp. 

“This will enable them to manage migration projects or short term volume increases that do not warrant their own infrastructure upgrade or the usual 12-month plus commitments offered in the market today. Besides the savings on capital expenditure, there will be significant savings in operation and maintenance costs, as Cataleya will take care of that.”

Market trends show that businesses are turning more and more towards cloud-based services for their business platform requirements.
