TORONTO, March 7, 2023 – BT, the UK’s leading fixed and mobile telecommunications provider, selected Optiva to renew its next-generation intelligent network (NGIN) service delivery platform (SDP) solution and support services.
The NGIN-SDP platform empowers BT to create any service application flexibly. BT developers rely on Optiva’s application platform for its scalability and proven stability with virtually zero change requests or outages throughout the partnership. The renewal offers BT a continuous evolution of the platform application server to add additional services and gain market share.
Optiva’s platform allows service brokering and orchestration capabilities to easily embed new accesses and logics, helping evolve new products and consolidate legacy services. Optiva’s roadmap in the space of 5G evolution and Open APIs may assist BT with their strategic network evolution and future products. Optiva’s platform allows BT to achieve its goal of staying ahead of the market in terms of service evolution while efficiently managing the service lifecycle.
“We value BT’s trust and our 8-year partnership. We look forward to continuing to innovate together and supporting BT’s goals to capture new market opportunities and expand their business success and capabilities,” said John Giere, President and CEO of Optiva.
