Built leveraging Amazon Web Services (AWS), Ascendon Communications is a multi-tenant solution that helps communications service providers (CSPs) retain and expand their customer base, increase revenues by accelerating the launch of new services, support new business model and offering innovation, and reduce costs through a cloud-based architecture.

The next-generation, digital BSS solution spans omni-channel user experiences, product and offer catalogs, B2B2x offerings, order management, capture and decomposition, service activation, real-time rating and charging, billing and revenue management, and invoicing.

Key solution features include:

  • A scalable omni-channel experience leveraging a set of open integration APIs
  • Modularized, pluggable component architecture enabling seamless integration to existing platforms
  • The ability to sell traditional and digital services together as a single offering
  • Simultaneously supports pre-paid and post-paid B2C and B2B business models

  • Platform driven through business level configuration for rapid deployment and ongoing adaptation
  • Integrated solution modules to minimize time-to-market and maximize new revenue opportunities across emerging digital services
  • Pay as you grow cloud economics, with virtualization through AWS
  • SaaS benefits including quarterly releases of new out-of-the-box functionality

This new solution is part of multiple market-leading Ascendon deployments to be announced in the coming year, including greenfield projects; consolidation across video, internet and wireline services; and multi-country solutions.
