Yatanarpon Teleport Selects Alepo for Fixed Broadband Transformation and Next-Generation Network Services

Yatanarpon Teleport (YTP) recently partnered with Alepo to modernize its existing core FTTH, ADSL and wireless broadband network in order to pave the way for the next-generation network services. With advanced workflow management and the award-winning My Mobile Buddy app, YTP will revamp its core network to become sleeker, more efficient, and responsive to shifting customer needs.

Thursday, May 11, 2017, Austin, TX – Alepo (www.alepo.com) – a global provider of core network and IT software solutions for communications service providers, announced today that YTP, a state-owned ISP, has selected Alepo to provide a convergent AAA, policy, billing and customer care solution for its fixed and wireless broadband network in Myanmar.

Alepo’s solution was chosen to replace a legacy system unable to keep up with changes in the scope of YTP’s growing market. As they strove to add new services, nuanced policy, and move towards next generation network services, they needed to find a partner with the flexibility necessary to help them pivot toward future services. Alepo’s robust and convergent solution allowed them to introduce new products and services to the market immediately, with no service interruption, lowering the cost of this vital upgrade.

Among the modules selected was Alepo’s award-winning My Mobile Buddy app, a means of invidual policy control, allowing customers to build their own plans according to many policy parameters such as altering family plans, buying turbo boosts, purchasing roaming plans, and more.

YTP also looked to Alepo to improve their internal processes, choosing Alepo’s workflow management and affiliate management systems to ensure smooth completion of tasks and automated management of wholesale partners. Alepo’s solutions provide a backoffice system designed to ease growing pains and provide a smooth foundation for expansion.

YTP felt confident enlisting Alepo for the deployment of a convergent BSS solution in Myanmar primarily owing to the company’s strong presence in the APAC countries like Bhutan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Maldives and many others. With an Alepo convergent BSS solution, YTP will be able to offer customers a wide range of prepaid and postpaid fixed and wireless broadband offers while achieving a competitive advantage through reduced time to market.

Broadband access remains one of the weak links in the Myanmar market. With Alepo’s convergent BSS solution, YTP will be able to bring broadband services and revenue opportunities to market faster without adding network complexity, all while paving the way for next generation network services. The platform offers multi-access network support, which will enable YTP to use a convergent infrastructure for its ADSL, FTTH and wireless broadband network, thereby reducing OPEX and TCO.

With Alepo’s comprehensive solution, YTP is assured of proven and flexible solution to deliver new innovative services faster and to meet customers’ evolving needs. Maturity, stability, and innovation make Alepo a market-leading vendor of solutions for both established and evolving internet service providers like YTP.

“For established providers, their original networks can prove unwieldy as customer needs shift and new technologies emerge,” said Vani Manian, Technical Director APAC at Alepo. “Alepo has always been committed to providing solutions that offer operators the agility to respond to market changes, now and into the future. We are proud to work to modernize YTP’s network as it moves into new markets.”

Alepo Research Report: Asian Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) Keen to Partner with Over The Top (OTT) Players to Combat Revenue Loss

Alepo recently published new survey findings of Asia Pacific mobile network operator executives regarding the impact of OTT services on their businesses and their outlook for OTT partnerships and other data monetization strategies.

Thursday, June 23, 2016, Austin, TX – Ahead of Mobile World Congress Shanghai 2016, Alepo (www.alepo.com) – a global provider of core network and IT software solutions for communications service providers, today released a new research report highlighting the need for more effective strategies for Over-the-Top (OTT) services by mobile network operators in Asia-Pacific region. The report, “Mobile Operator Survey: OTT Services Outlook in Asia-Pacific,” is based on a survey of mobile network operator executives conducted by Alepo to understand revenue loss and other business challenges caused by the rapid emergence of OTT providers in the region.

Alepo’s research reveals strong leanings towards MNOs looking to create revenue-sharing partnerships with OTT providers. While just over half of the survey particpants reported to have working partnership agreements with OTT providers in place today, nearly all expressed interest or intent in creating partnerships.

Key Survey Findings Presented in this Report

  • Declining voice revenues versus rising OTT voice services is one of biggest challenges that the respondents face today.
  • Revenue loss to OTT providers is higher for messaging (SMS) services than for other services, including mobile voice, video, and mobile money.
  • Nearly two-thirds of respondents directly compete with OTT providers with their own video, messaging, or content services.
  • While just over half of respondents have working partnership agreements with OTT providers today, nearly all expressed interest or intent in forming OTT partnerships.
  • Respondents overwhelmingly agree that OTT providers are a major threat to their business, yet they are very optimistic about the potential for win-win partnerships.

Danielle Elaine Smith, Director of Marketing at Alepo, commented on the report’s findings. “It’s clear that mobile network operators in Asia Pacific recognize the emerging threat of OTT services on the bottom line and are proactively seeking new strategies and business models to overcome that.” She added, “This report indicates that the implementation of those strategies is not limited by an unwillingness to partner by either the operators or the OTT providers, but rather by poor or outdated policy and charging control infrastructure that can’t adapt to meet the new realities of today’s dynamic APAC telecom markets.”

Alepo provides award-winning policy and charging control solutions to combat operator revenue loss to OTT services and enable winning partnerships between OTT providers and mobile network operators. With a complete, carrier-grade data monetization ecosystem, Alepo enables mobile network operators to better monetize their 3G and 4G mobile data networks, partner with third-party providers, push new offers to customers in a modern mobile app, and much more.

Alepo will attend Mobile World Congress Shanghai on June 29 – July 1, 2016. During the event, Alepo will give live demos of its real-time data charging and policy control solutions for 3G, LTE, and Wi-Fi.

Alepo Reveals New Solution to Accelerate Growth in Revenue and Market Share on Mobile Broadband Networks

Alepo will showcase the solution at Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona, Spain on March 2 – 5, 2015. With the recognition that the rate of growth of mobile broadband penetration and traffic consumption worldwide far outpace that of revenues and ARPU, Alepo created its Mobile Broadband Accelerator solution to help wireless network operators to better leverage and capitalize on the value of their mobile broadband networks. “We know that mobile broadband revenues today are growing at a slower pace than in previous years, and so we’ve developed the Alepo Mobile Broadband Accelerator solution to help operators stimulate stagnating revenue growth,” said Derrick Gross, Vice President of Services at Alepo. He explained that the solution enables operators to readily introduce innovative and differentiated services – from bandwidth on demand to data rollover plans to prepaid data models and well beyond.

The solution also provides tools to enhance the customer experience, to gain business insights and analytics, and to explore new revenue models and untapped markets for mobile broadband services – all key factors in growing revenues and market share. Alepo’s Mobile Broadband Accelerator solution brings together best-of-breeds IT and core network software from Alepo and Alepo partners and professional services on a single, pre-integrated platform, oriented towards the operator’s mobile broadband business needs and priorities. An open, flexible solution, it is highly adaptable to any type of network environment. The solution can be deployed as an “overlay” platform that extends the functionality and feature-richness of an operator’s existing mobile broadband network while avoiding unnecessary replacement, complexity, and disruptions to existing services. Conversely, the packaged solution can serve as a complete core network and CRM for Greenfield or startup operators. In any case, operators benefit from Alepo’s constantly evolving collection of out-of-the-box capabilities and business use cases as well as over a decade of industry expertise in “all things data.” “In today’s competitive landscape, operators demand greater business and network agility to bring new mobile broadband offers and experiences to market faster, to the right customer segments, and at the right time in order to compete efficiently and to drive up ARPU,” said Gross, adding, “Alepo’s Mobile Broadband Accelerator delivers on all points, making it simple to launch attractive and targeted data offers – regardless of your current network environment.” To learn more or to request a live demonstration of Alepo’s Mobile Broadband Accelerator solution, please visit www.alepo.com/mwc2015 or visit Alepo at Mobile World Congress 2015 at Stand 5H83 in Hall 5.
