AsiaInfo-Linkage launches advanced Veris™ BSS Suite to EMEA market

Asian market leader brings innovative BSS technology proven in Asia to operators in Europe, Middle East & Africa

4th February 2013, Cambridge, UKAsiaInfo-Linkage, the largest supplier of telecommunications operations and management systems in Asia, today announced the availability in EMEA of its advanced Veris suite of Business Support Systems and solutions.

AsiaInfo’s comprehensive Veris portfolio – which is already successfully deployed in Asia with some of the world’s largest network operators – includes the core solutions of Veris Billing, Veris CRM and Veris BI (Business Intelligence). These products, and some of their industry leading individual components, can be deployed as standalone modules or as complete, pre-integrated solutions.

AsiaInfo will be showcasing the full capabilities of the Veris suite, and demonstrating some of the latest standalone solutions from the range, at Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona this month (25th – 28th February 2013).

Announcing the European launch of the Veris suite, General Manager for Europe and Corporate VP Alex Hawker said: “Our Veris product suite offers the most comprehensive and sophisticated set of BSS capabilities on the market today, with a proven ability to transform the performance of operators’ businesses.

“With the availability of the Veris suite in EMEA, and the expansion of our team in Europe, we are looking forward to extending the global reach of our solutions and expertise, and to helping telecoms operators across the region benefit from lower CAPEX and OPEX costs and the ability to deliver significant improvements in customer experience,” he added.

The innovative Veris Product Suite is a comprehensive telco-optimised BSS stack, harnessing the most advanced technology available to offer real-time convergent charging, business intelligence and data monetization. The products run on the latest cloud computing platforms which enable cost-effective performance at very large scale, as well as the opportunity to centralise BSS operations across multiple regions or countries. Veris is architected to support Big Data, creating real-time actionable intelligence from the huge volumes of data flowing through network and IT systems. All these innovations are already proven in live deployments with large operators in Asia.
AsiaInfo is the number one software vendor in telecommunications operations and management systems in Asia-Pacific (source: Gartner), and its BSS/OSS systems currently serve nearly a billion subscribers globally. Last year, Beijing-based AsiaInfo-Linkage established its EMEA regional headquarters in Cambridge, UK, and began to assemble an experienced European team led by Alex Hawker to build on the company’s market-leading technology and roll out the Veris Product Suite across the EMEA region.
