Objectives of the Catalyst Project
The objective of the Catalyst Project is to explore collaboration and innovation via a marketplace where telcos can come together and find synergies by sharing success stories with other telcos. The marketplace is the first of its kind for telcos and will allow CSPs to share the service they have created profitably in non-competing geographies so that another telco can replicate the success story in another part of the world in an instant to extend the same service to its subscribers.
Huawei provided the hardware required to host the ADLs Digital Telco Enabler (ADL-DTE) platform, InTouch market place and the Huawei Convergence Billing System (CBS) integration.
“Huawei CBS has an installed base of over 200 globally, their capabilities and services can be accessed via ADL DTE and onboarding to the Huawei inTouch Market – an online marketplace that allows CSPs to sharing success stories easily,” said Rockred Zhang, President of Huawei Software Business Unit. “The award is a recognition of Huawei’s investment and we will continue to work together with ADL on innovative projects.”
Huawei CBS is serving 2.1 billion subscribers from more than 200 CSPs across 114 countries and regions. CBS provides a flexible monetization approach for telcos’ commodities, not only traditional Voice, SMS, VAS, but also digital products, telecom capabilities, and IoT, 5G products.
