Through this partnership, Salam Mobile will deploy Optiva cloud-native BSS technology on its state-of-the-art, private cloud infrastructure. Optiva BSS Platform, a best-of-suite, end-to-end, pre-integrated customer and revenue management solution, allows Salam to quickly and cost-effectively conceptualize and introduce new digital service offerings to customers.
