SHENZHEN, CHINA: ZTE Corp. has announced that Nucleus Connect, the Operating Company (OpCo) of Singapore’s Next Generation Nationwide Broadband Network (Next Gen NBN) has partnered with ZTE to build the BSS (Business Support System) and OSS (Operational Support System) platforms that will allow Nucleus Connect to support various end-to-end services such as business operations, billing, fault management, network management and maintenance.
ZTE’s highly flexible BSS/OSS solution allows customised configurations which work well with an open access environment. It is expected to provide Nucleus Connect with fast and reliable service provisioning, multi-mode billing and effective network operation.
In addition, the BSS/OSS delivers maintenance through flexible process management, overlapped resource modelling, powerful SOA structure and easy-to-scale interfacing models. ZTE’s system will support various new services under the company’s wholesale bandwidth business, and help Nucleus Connect run its business operations efficiently and effectively.
Nucleus Connect CEO, David Storrie, said: “As the OpCo, Nucleus Connect is responsible for the Active Optical Network (AON) infrastructure, including switches and transmission equipment, and also to resell the bandwidth to the third-layer RSPs (Retail Service Providers). It’s critical for us to work with a trusted partner like ZTE who can help us develop a reliable, future-proof, turnkey solution to support our RSPs.”
ZTE Asia Pacific president, Zheng Bang, said: “The partnership has once again proven ZTE’s competitive position in BSS/OSS planning, construction and implementation. We are confident that we can fulfil the needs of Nucleus Connect and provide the best broadband communications services for Singaporeans.”
ZTE’s ZSmart BSS/OSS solution is currently providing business and operation support to operators in more than 50 countries and regions around the world.
