OXIO Connectivity-as-a-Service Platform Go Live with Optiva BSS Platform on the Public Cloud Accelerated to Support Oxigeno2030 COVID-19 Relief Initiative

The first SaaS, multi-tenant BSS platform offered for telecom providers is being leveraged to help those in need and allow OXIO to achieve rapid deployment, unlimited scale and savings with worldwide reach

TORONTO, May 6, 2020 – OXIO, a global connectivity-as-a-service provider, has launched a virtualized multi-carrier solution for enterprises leveraging the Optiva BSS Platform™ on the public cloud. The service, OXIO BrandVNO™, offers the capability to transform any enterprise worldwide into a provider of mobile connectivity, which can be easily bundled into their existing offering.  

 

The Optiva deployment was accelerated to support a relief effort called Oxígeno2030, which leverages at-cost mobile connectivity to help Mexico’s most impacted individuals stay connected as they adjust their lives to the crippling coronavirus pandemic. The goal of the initiative is to connect one million Mexicans by Q1 2021. OXIO, Zenda.la and Accountability Lab Mexico joined forces to launch Oxígeno2030, which uses the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework to promote development through the use of mobile technologies.

OXIO’s innovative digital service has been built with Optiva BSS Platform at its core and made available to provide operators with a pay-as-you-go platform, quick time to market and up to 80% in total cost of ownership (TCO) savings. Optiva BSS Platform affords OXIO and its customers the benefit of not having to manage a complicated enterprise software system. Instead, OXIO can focus on its core expertise, elevate customer experience and optimize its cost. 

 

“Our proposition is unique. We empower enterprises worldwide to complement their offerings with a branded mobile service — without the cost and complexity associated with the traditional MVNO model. With Optiva BSS Platform and public cloud capabilities, our customers can easily launch their own branded service in a matter of days and immediately take advantage of their newfound status as wireless operators,” said Nicolas Girard Ph.D., CEO of OXIO. “Optiva helps our customers and us provide consumers with more affordable and reliable internet connections — and fuel our growth and success.”

 

For OXIO, the cloud-native architecture and public cloud eliminate the traditional costs and complexities experienced by operators in the past. OXIO is afforded full, end-to-end BSS functionality that includes customer management, prepaid and postpaid revenue management, commercial and technical product catalogs and real-time convergent rating and charging for mobile customers. 

 

“OXIO joins a growing list of operators who are leveraging the benefits of cloud-native BSS. Now, with Oxígeno2030, the public cloud is being leveraged to help those in need in Mexico,” said Danielle Royston, CEO of Optiva. “Together with our customers, we are reimagining the infrastructure of telecom BSS for long-term sustainability, so we may optimally support mobile subscribers worldwide.”
