Israel’s newest mobile operator has selected the platform which will underpin delivery of voice and messaging services within its network. Golan Telecom has chosen OpenCloud’s Rhino platform in order to reduce network costs and deliver new services.
The platform provides an open framework that gives the operator the flexibility to rapidly develop, and implement, advanced value-added services, and will form the basis of Golan Telecom’s service layer architecture when the company launches consumer services.
Commenting on the announcement, Golan Telecom said: “This solution provides us with the ability to satisfy the constant changes in consumer demand for services and applications, with a significantly reduced total cost base. This open framework allows us to develop services ourselves, or via developer community supported by OpenCloud.”
Jeff Gordon, CEO of OpenCloud, said: “The platform was designed specifically to meet the competitive challenges mobile operators now face. It meets that challenge by exploiting an open standards environment to allow for rapid, user-centric and cost effective service development.”
