Under the agreement, Telenity will deliver the complete Service Delivery Platform (SDP) solution to Nawras’s mobile network including key components for Web Services, Messaging Gateway, Charging and Provisioning. With the deployment of Canvas CSP, Nawras will be able to open its network to third party partner application developers easily and securely while quickly creating, managing and delivering new innovative services to its subscribers.
Nawras selected Telenity’s SDP solution because of its compliance with the technical requirements for functionality, quality, reliability, scalability and security. Telenity also brings a wealth of experience and knowledge from previous successful SDP deployments including Turkcell, (NASDAQ: TCELL), the leading GSM operator in Turkey and the third largest GSM operator in Europe with 31.8 million subscribers.
“Nawras is excited to be in early deployment of Service Delivery Platform (SDP) for its brand-new network,” said Nasser Esfahani, Head of Engineering at Nawras. “Building the SDP environment right from the early stage will not only give us the competitive edge but will enable us faster time-to-market and simplify service integration. Key criteria for selection of Telenity’s SDP solution was their deep understanding of Nawras' technical requirements and their responsiveness in proposing solutions to meet them,” said Mr. Esfahani.
“Nawras’s selection of our Canvas CSP product and services once again proves our strength as a service delivery platform (SDP) provider and our deep understanding of our customer needs,” said Dilip Singh, CEO at Telenity. “With the deployment of our SDP offering, Nawras will continue to achieve their goal of being the customer-friendly mobile communications operator in Oman with differentiated and personalized service offerings that are easy-to-use while maintaining control over their costs.
