KPN and ZTEsoft have signed an IT framework agreement that extends their strategic partnership into the OSS domain for KPN’s operations in The Netherlands.
KPN and ZTE have been jointly preparing for this transformative program with the goal to simplify KPN’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 KPN’s OSS operations.
This agreement will see ZTEsoft deploying its ZSmart 8 B/OSS suite, and taking the lead contractor responsibility for the system integration portion of KPN’s IT transformation. All of this will be executed in close cooperation with KPN’s existing strategic partner in the OSS domain, Tech Mahindra.
"The signing of the new contract is a great opportunity for ZTEsoft to display its capabilities and expertise in supporting KPN with next-generation IT technologies,” said Jane Chen, chairwoman of ZTEsoft.
“This project clearly marks a milestone in ZTEsoft's business development in Europe and highlights the company’s evolution to an internationally acknowledged provider of ICT solutions,” said Chen.
With the official launch of the initiative in the fourth quarter this year, the duration of the partnership is expected to span several years and will allow for intermediate deliveries in order to provide tangible business benefits during the lifetime of the program.
