Indian tech firm Jio Platforms has partnered with Optiva for an end-to-end 5G solution for global markets that aims to accelerate the monetisation of 5G services and use cases.
Under the agreement, Jio Platforms (JPL) will offer its cloud-native 5G core to operators globally along with Optiva’s proven and future-ready converged charging engine. By combining innovation with scale, the companies aim to help operators identify 5G business opportunities in the consumer and enterprise segments.
JPL’s cloud-native 5G core implements new 3GPP network architecture to capitalise on standalone 5G, enabling faster connectivity speeds, ultra-low latency, and network reliability. These capabilities, combined with network automation, network slicing and edge computing, are instrumental in addressing multiple verticals which enables innovative use cases such as enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), ultra-reliable low latency communication (uRLLC) and massive machine type communication (mMTC).
Optiva Charging Engine is a real-time cloud-native converged charging solution that drives true converged charging across mobile, fixed IPTV and broadband domains and services beyond connectivity, opening the opportunity for partner ecosystem monetisation with new commercial models. The solution is available as a SaaS-based platform and supports 5G dynamic slicing optimisation with real-time action, policy fulfilment and orchestration to ensure QoS. Its advanced distribution and value-based charging features are optimised for edge processing to minimise network traffic, deliver cost savings and leverage cloud economics.
“JPL's cloud-native 5G core supports capabilities that enable CSPs and enterprises to launch new services and 5G use cases quickly — while maintaining sight of services monetisation, which is baked into the architecture through this collaboration,” said Aayush Bhatnagar, Senior Vice President of Jio Platforms.
"Telecom is at the crossroads of connectivity and digital engagement. Operators must select business and operational models that quickly adapt to new threats and opportunities. Optiva’s partnership with Jio offers a converged digital experience, enabling operators to optimally accelerate their 5G use case viability, future innovation, immersive experience offerings and new monetisation opportunities,” said Matt Halligan, CTO of Optiva.
