Optiva announced that it has secured a significant upgrade and multi-year support agreement with Afghan Wireless for its Optiva Charging Engine, Voucher Management and Policy Control solutions.

Afgan Wireless which serves more than five million customers needed a portfolio offering with a robust roadmap that would position and ready them for a future public cloud solution, said Optiva. Their upgrade provides a roadmap to the public cloud and equips AWCC with the functional capabilities to tap into the growth potential of Afghanistan. The upgrade will also help AWCC advance its growth strategy and gain capabilities for targeting new customer segments.

Also, the upgrade will allow them to eventually run their BSS stack, including real-time charging, through remote operations and management. This will improve Afgan Wireless’s resiliency and operational challenges compared to running the stack via the traditional, on-premise deployment models.

Amin Ramin, MD and Board Member, Afgan Wireless
Over our more than 10-year partnership, Optiva has earned our trust to deploy and support mission-critical, real-time converged charging and policy control solutions for us. Working closely with Optiva team, this upgrade will enable us to increase monetization, offer new value to our customers and prepare us for migration to a public cloud environment with unmatched scalability.

Danielle Royston, CEO, Optiva
The upgrade allows us to help AWCC further achieve their strategic business goals and position them for even greater success in the future with the transition to the public cloud. Our role as their partner is to maximize the value they receive today while preparing them for transformation tomorrow.
