Indonesia’s XL Axiata and the Philippines’ Globe Telecom have signed separate multi-year agreements with software and services provider Amdocs.
In Indonesia, Amdocs will supply XL Axiata with an end-to-end media solution that will allow the operator to deliver content and OTT services to its customers. CommsUpdate reports that Amdocs will provide integration, testing, delivery services and operational support to XL Axiata.
In a statement, Amdocs said that its MarketONE platform would offer XL Axiata’s subscribers “seamless access to international, local and regional content services” and “flexible entertainment packages.”
Meanwhile in the Philippines, Amdocs will supply Globe Telecom with Radio Access Network (RAN) optimisation services for site acceptance, cluster optimisation and network performance management, reducing the amount of time required to launch new services and technologies.
The deployment forms part of Globe’s 5G network expansion. In a press release, Amdocs claimed that its solutions would help the operator boost its operational efficiency and “ensure faster resolution of issues and customer complaints than traditional drive-test techniques, in which engineers measure a mobile network’s performance while travelling in a defined area and checking the network quality.”
Globe CTO Robert Tan said: “The Amdocs RAN Optimisation services for site acceptance, cluster optimisation and network performance management will accelerate the expansion of our 4G and 5G networks, ensuring greater business agility and faster time to market.”
