AsiaInfo’s Real-time Self Service Solution Proves an Award Winner

AsiaInfo wins 'Mobile Pricing Innovation' category in 2014 Telecoms.com Industry Awards

AsiaInfo-Linkage, Inc., Asia's leading supplier of BSS systems, has won the ‘Mobile Pricing Innovation' category in The 2014 Telecoms.com Industry Awards, which recognize innovation and excellence in the global communications industry. The award, for AsiaInfo's Real-time Self Service (RTSS) solution, was presented in Barcelona to Dr Andy Tiller, vice president of product marketing for AsiaInfo, by Mike Hibberd, Editorial Director at Telecoms.com.

Operators with AsiaInfo's RTSS solution are empowered to give their customers a high degree of control over their mobile voice and data experience, greatly improving customer experience. For example, RTSS enables customers to set their own budget controls and spend thresholds, to transfer minutes/data between users, to convert resources from one type to another (e.g. minutes into megabytes), and to upgrade the bandwidth of a particular app temporarily. Shared Plans are enabled while putting real time control into the hands of consumers.

"We are delighted to receive this recognition of a solution developed to enable operators to deliver a greatly enhanced user experience, while maximizing revenue," said Dr Tiller. "The need is clear - independent research conducted by consultants at Northstream shows that mobile operators in Western Europe could increase annual data revenues by about €4 billion by giving customers greater control of their use and spend, and could also save more than €540 million annually in customer care costs."

AsiaInfo's Cloud-based Operation Platform Container (COPC), developed with China Mobile, was a finalist in the ‘Best Use of Cloud Services by a Telco' category. The COPC is a centralized BSS system with a distributed multi-tenancy architecture that streamlines business operations across operator subsidiaries. Estimated to reduce the overall time to market for new services and offers by 40%, and reduce average processing time of service orders by 30%, implementation of the COPC significantly increases customer satisfaction. For China Mobile, Capex and Opex savings were $120 million within the first year of use. The revenue increase derived from shortened order processing time, and the new products enabled by the COPC, is estimated to be $40 million every year.

The 2014 Telecoms.com Industry Awards is a new initiative that celebrates the wide-ranging achievements of the key players within the global communications industry.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
