Ericsson lands digital transformation deal with Orange Egypt

Ericsson and Orange Egypt announced on Monday that they have signed a multi-year deal to collaborate on accelerating the telco’s digital transformation by fortifying its backend and building a resilient architecture across its network.

Under the multi-year bundle deal, the two companies will deploy Ericsson’s Catalog Manager and Order Care products, which are part of Ericsson’s Business and Operations Support Systems (B/OSS) portfolio. Ericsson says these will be future-proofed by implementing them as cloud-native solutions using its Cloud Container Distribution.

Ericsson said the B/OSS solutions – which are aligned with TM Forum’s Open Digital Architecture standards – will serve as cornerstone technologies for Orange Egypt’s strategic cloud native digital architecture.

Orange Egypt said the new capabilities could also bring greater flexibility to its customers by digitising and personalising the subscription process, as well as give it additional data and insight into customer preferences that will help it make competitive pricing decisions.

As part of the deal, Ericsson will also modernize and upgrade its charging solution, as well as expand its mediation solution, both of which Orange Egypt currently uses.

By combining all of these solutions, and building on catalog driven orchestration, Orange Egypt will be able to streamline its business configuration process within the transformation project – which will be crucial to deal with the increasing complexity of telecoms and digital services, said Håkan Cervell, VP and head of Ericsson Saudi Arabia and Egypt at Ericsson Middle East and Africa.

“Digital service experience, catalog-driven orchestration and cloud native technology are essential for CSPs to successfully manage the complex challenges arising in the era of 5G and Internet of Things (IoT),” he said.
