OSS Integration Platform for: Secure Multi-tenant Customer Portals, Service Creation and Delivery, and Internal Operations
Service providers make significant investments in numerous OSS, BSS, and service assurance tools from multiple vendors but these tools often lack an easy and secure method for presenting integrated and role-based views of the combined data. A unified view is exactly what both customers and internal Operations teams need which is why many of the world's largest service providers worldwide have turned to Edge's technologies and expertise for designing and deploying a secure, scalable, fully-integrated, and flexible platform to delivery business-critical information and services.
Edge provides a single system for service delivery, Network, Security, and Sales Operations, and Executive Reporting. The benefits include an improved, customized customer experience, streamlined workflow and information sharing, and rapid time to value.
Edge solutions were architected specifically to meet the security and scalability requirements of global service providers. The Edge platform enables external access to internal tools with role-based access to applications and content while maintaining security.
