Chinese fibre provider Yangtze Optical Fibre and Cable (YOFC) is entering the broadband market in four Peruvian regions. It will use digital enablement expert Alepo’s BSS/OSS solution.
The project, says Alepo, will equip YOFC with advanced billing, device monitoring, security and enterprise management capabilities. YOFC will provide broadband services in rural areas of Peru, including Ancash, Arequipa, La Libertad and San Martin.
The project is part of national telecommunications programme PRONATEL’s attempt to bridge the connectivity gap and enable high-quality services in Peru, particularly for underserved populations.
The deployment will include a transport network and an access network, which will be implemented with optical fibre. The project encompasses four sites with a central point in Lima for reporting. It facilitates interaction between the sites so that YOFC can view consolidated information.
Alepo will provide its BSS/OSS infrastructure, enabling YOFC to manage the connections of individual subscribers, schools, government entities, companies and the general public.
The solution, says Alepo, will let YOFC launch innovative new products and services as the market evolves. The operator will have the flexibility to deploy in a phased approach, so that it can go to market quickly and continue to build the platform with more modules over time.
Alepo says its vendor-agnostic platform provides interoperability as well as evolved network elements to integrate seamlessly with third-party systems in YOFC’s network.
In addition, Alepo will configure custom reports providing comprehensive device monitoring and BI insights to help YOFC optimize operations and modify its business strategy depending on customer usage patterns and demand.
