Ericsson has announced the pre-integration of its charging system with Axiata Group Berhad (Axiata)’s Apigate platform. 

Apigate is a new breed API ecosystem provider that enables businesses to achieve rapid growth and monetisation on a secure and seamless platform. This will lead to the creation of an innovative digital API integration and monetisation framework through a purpose-built API Microservices Accelerator Pack that will help communication service providers create new revenue streams through open APIs and innovation ecosystems. This innovative framework enables over 70 open APIs which can be leveraged to create transformative digital experiences and realise new revenue monetisation opportunities.

This development follows the MoU announcement between the two companies in November 2018 to collaborate and create innovative value propositions in the Business Support System (BSS), Operational Support System (OSS) and Internet of Things (IoT) domains by leveraging the next generation digital API platform offerings of Apigate and Ericsson’s Digital Business Systems portfolio.

Ericsson Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh Head Todd Ashton says, “The pre-integration of Ericsson Charging system with Apigate’s platform is a fine example of how collaboration between Ericsson and the Group can create new value opportunities beyond data volume and voice minutes with API-driven digital solutions. It will allow operators to create new type of digital services combining their capabilities with the vast internet ecosystem.”

Apigate CEO Zoran Vasiljev says: “The pre-integration to Ericsson Charging will assist us to structure offerings for the monetisation of telecom APIs with a large ecosystem of partners including the longtail developer community. Time to market will be accelerated with ready to use business APIs for payments, communications and messaging, identity and authentication. We are thrilled to enable seamless integration for our partners at lower costs.”

Axiata’s Group CIO Anthony Rodrigo adds: “This is further testament to the relevance of Axiata’s Apigate platform in powering digital transformation to meet the fast-evolving demands of our regional markets. Our partnership with Ericsson places us in a sweet spot as an enabler for greater industry wins specifically in creating API-driven digital solutions and transformation of our IT/BSS stack, aligning well with our drive towards becoming a NG Telco Digital Platform Company.”

Ericsson is a leader in real-time charging, with more than 184 implementations managing more than 2.3 billion end users worldwide. Ericsson is investing in a powerful roadmap of evolution for Charging and Billing that will provide support for 5G and IoT, advanced B2B functionality, an enhanced Catalog UI, an improved architecture, a thin digital omnichannel frontend and increased scalability across each of the products.
