AsiaInfo-Linkage, Inc., Asia's leading supplier of BSS systems, today announced that the implementation of its B2B collaboration platform by China Telecom has been nominated in the Open Digital category of the annual TM Forum Excellence Awards. AsiaInfo's Veris™ Open Operational Platform (O2P) is a collaboration platform that enables the creation and deployment of converged digital services between over-the-top (OTT) providers and network operators. The solution has been successfully deployed by China Telecom since 2011.

O2P was created by AsiaInfo-Linkage to enable operators to boost revenues by converging their products with those of the OTT players, who in turn get access to the operator's advanced back-office IT capabilities. A recent survey1 revealed that 93% of operators see value in partnering with OTT players. Veris O2P provides the capability for operators to add more value to their OTT partnerships, as well as reducing the IT cost of working with multiple partners.

China Telecom currently hosts more than 20 OTT partners on the platform across its fixed mobile and IPTV services, and is constantly evolving to provide a more streamlined, cost-effective implementation. With China Telecom's help, AsiaInfo-Linkage has continually enhanced O2P to optimize the collaboration process for all members of the digital ecosystem. O2P is now available as a commercial product as part of the Veris™ product suite.

TM Forum's Excellence Awards recognise operational and business excellence across the communications and media industries and provide a unique opportunity for companies to demonstrate their leadership, expertise and initiatives. The award finalists in all five categories will be announced on April 8, 2014.
