Chinese software developer ZTEsoft, a subsidiary of equipment vendor ZTE Corporation, has signed a framework agreement with Dutch telco KPN for an operations support systems (OSS) transformation project. The agreement will see ZTEsoft deploying its ZSmart 8 combined business support systems (BSS) and OSS suite, while also acting as lead contractor for the system integration portion of KPN’s IT transformation. The Chinese firm says the programme is designed to simplify the telco’s OSS processes and IT landscape, ultimately speeding up time-to-market of services for customers and lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO) of its OSS operations. The work is being carried out with KPN’s existing OSS supplier, Tech Mahindra.
