Atos to extend reach of OpenCloud’s Rhino

Deal extends reach and value of new operators’ communication services

By Amy-Jo Crowley

IT services firm Atos has teamed up with OpenCloud to extend its Wi-Fi calling application.

Atos’ WiFi Calling application will run on OpenCloud’s Rhino service delivery platform to reduce complexity and speed up time-to-market.

Communication Service Providers (CSP) will now benefit from the advantages of Atos and OpenCloud WiFi Calling solution to enhance customer loyalty, boost indoor coverage, and offload traffic from 3G networks, according to Atos.

Christopher Dulya, VP Telco Network Products at Atos, said: "WiFi Calling is a disruptive technology that has the potential to become second nature for mobile users in the short term. We see evidence that many CSPs across Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia are now strongly considering launching WiFi Calling and they require the fastest possible time-to-market to gain competitive advantage.

Michael Aspinall, VP Global Sales at OpenCloud, said: "Atos has the ambition, the market knowledge and the technology to make that a reality. OpenCloud’s Rhino platform allows our products to be developed quickly and flexibly, giving us all of the complex functionality required while maintaining Telco-grade performance and reliability."

"Voice remains a central pillar for CSPs and finding new ways to add value to that service is critical. OpenCloud provides an open, virtualisable service-layer to enable such innovation across all generations of communication network. It’s great to see partners such as Atos leverage OpenCloud’s products to rapidly create and deploy advanced communication solutions. WiFi Calling is a solution that can deliver value and competitive advantage."
