Atos has teamed up with service-layer innovator OpenCloud to extend the reach and strength of its WiFi Calling solution. Atos’ WiFi Calling application will run on OpenCloud’s Rhino service delivery platform to reduce complexity and speed up time-to-market.
Communication Service Providers (CSP) can benefit from the advantages of Atos and OpenCloud WiFi Calling solution to enhance customer loyalty, boost indoor coverage, and offload traffic from 3G networks. WiFi Calling is an addition to Atos current Telco Networks Products portfolio and ready for immediate adoption.
Christopher Dulya, VP Telco Network Products at Atos comments: “WiFi Calling is a disruptive technology that has the potential to become second nature for mobile users in the short term. We see evidence that many CSPs across Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia are now strongly considering launching WiFi Calling and they require the fastest possible time-to-market to gain competitive advantage. Atos has the ambition, the market knowledge and the technology to make that a reality. OpenCloud’s Rhino platform allows our products to be developed quickly and flexibly, giving us all of the complex functionality required while maintaining Telco-grade performance and reliability.”
“Connectivity is commodity. Value comes from how that connectivity is used: the communication services.” says Michael Aspinall VP Global Sales at OpenCloud, “Voice remains a central pillar for CSPs and finding new ways to add value to that service is critical. OpenCloud provides an open, virtualisable service-layer to enable such innovation across all generations of communication network. It’s great to see partners such as Atos leverage OpenCloud’s products to rapidly create and deploy advanced communication solutions. WiFi Calling is a solution that can deliver value and competitive advantage.”
