Huawei has unveiled two new cloud-based offerings to help operators build and deploy video and BSS services.
The vendor’s Video-as-a-Service solution utilises virtualization and multi-tenant technologies to help small operators compete with larger industry players in terms of the resource and financial cost of rolling out video streaming services. Huawei claims that compared to an in-house approach, its SaaS video offering helps operators meet the planning, construction, integration, operations, personnel and technical requirements by reducing the capex barrier and by speeding up time to market for new services.
Meanwhile, its BSS-as-a-service offering is also targeted at small-to-medium sized operators and aims to provide flexible system configurability which adapts to a variety of business needs. Huawei says its ITIL-based, SLA-oriented set up caters for a customer-centric strategy to enable digital multi-channel collaboration.
