Optiva Charging Engine Now Generally Available on Kubernetes

First Kubernetes-ready, real-time charging solution for telecom industry

TORONTO, JUNE 28, 2018 /CNW/ – Optiva Inc. (TSX: OPT), an innovative software company that delivers mission-critical monetization and subscriber management solutions to leading communication service providers (CSPs) globally, today announced that its award-winning, fully customizable charging solution, Optiva Charging Engine (OCE), is now available for Kubernetes-enabled data centers, including private data centers and Google Cloud Platform.

 

Kubernetes, an open-source container-orchestration system for automating deployment, scaling and management of containerized applications, allows for a dramatically reduced footprint. Placement of OCE in a Kubernetes-enabled private datacenter can be done as a long-term solution or a hybrid step to running  in the public cloud, such as Google Cloud Platform.

 

This technology allows CSPs to simplify and reduce the time required for deployment. Further, it frees up the time and cost of handling the complexity of on-premise deployments and challenges, such as disaster recovery and staffing.

 

With skyrocketing demand for the telecom industry to provide data and services, real-time scalability is critical. It allows CSPs to successfully keep pace with demands, deliver advances like 5G and IoT, grow their businesses and cost-efficiently meet margin targets. It is a game changer for CSPs, giving them a competitive advantage.

 

“We are excited to announce the availability of OCE on Kubernetes, a notable advancement for an application such as OCE,” said Danielle Royston, CEO of Optiva. “We are now cloud ready, proving to the industry that systems like OCE can absolutely take advantage of the exciting and disruptive innovation the cloud brings. This is another significant step forward on our $100 million product investment to bring speed, scale and lower TCO to telcos.”
