Amartus, a innovator in inter-provider business negotiation systems and network automation software solutions, has announced the development of an open, multi-carrier, multi-vendor proof of concept (PoC) showcase titled Dynamic Connectivity and Commerce Enabled by MEF 3.0 and Blockchain.
The PoC was developed in collaboration with network provider partners Sparkle, TATA Communications, Colt, and PCCW Global with solution vendors Clear and Accedian.
The PoC will debut at MEF 19 in Los Angeles (stand 514 from Nov. 18-22) and demonstrates the combined use of MEF Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO) Sonata and distributed ledger technology (DLT)/Blockchain to automate the end-to-end quote to cash process for on-demand inter-carrier MEF 3.0 connectivity services.
Building on the work of the award-winning MEF 18 Fulfillment & Activation PoC, this MEF 19 PoC adds DLT/Blockchain technologies for automated settlement and billing to complete the negotiation life-cycle.
Enterprises need on-demand information and communication technology (ICT) services to compete in the increasingly agile, global business environment. Cloud and enterprise software applications are already available on-demand, however the lack of on-demand inter-carrier connectivity services remains a key barrier.
Amartus is an innovator in inter-provider business negotiation systems & network automation, providing both solutions and expert services to ICT providers & vendors. The company was established in 2003 by experts from the field of network management and networking and since then has provided Expert Professional Services to Telecom Service Providers, Network & B-OSS Vendors.
