Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) is investing in phone software systems to the tune of £4million.
The business venture will provide NSN with a wider range of network capabilities, to be produced by the British software firm OpenCloud.
The deal is the culmination of a two-year partnership between the two companies. Because OpenCloud software has been selling so well, NSN wanted to take the relationship to a new level.
The CEO of OpenCloud, Jeff Gordon, said that his company would work closely with NSN while remaining independent.
OpenCloud writes software to control services offered by a phone system company on its network.
NSN is delivering single charging systems for both post-paid and pre-paid telephone systems. It wants to create a single network system of billing.
Anssi Kariola, the NSN head of strategy and business development, said: “Most operators have a collection of legacy and next generation systems, especially with the increasing use of VoIP. OpenCloud software will help to bring new market services while quickly integrating with legacy systems.”
