TM Forum recognises AsiaInfo work on Frameworx programme
Gives Catalyst Award to team working on multi-party digital services
The TM Forum's Frameworx programme is aimed at establishing common approaches and standards, with a particular emphasis on enabling the digital services ecosystem. The team including AsiaInfo were looking at creating a standard approach for managing the creation, provisioning, ordering, billing and support of new digital services involving multiple parties. Other companies represented in the Catalyst project were Huawei and Infonova, with the direction set by Orange France and supported by China Mobile.
The AsiaInfo team successfully demonstrated the use of an Open Operational Platform that enables operators and third party service providers to collaborate in the creation of new 'mash-up' digital services which can be ordered via multiple channels. The Platform also acts as a hub for the service providers involved to exchange information via Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).
The Catalyst demonstration in San Jose showcased the critical APIs and processes required to support B2B, B2C and B2B2C digital services delivered and managed through multiple partners. Within the scenarios demonstrated the project team made use of brand new APIs that are part of TM Forum's new Open Digital Ecosystem.
Xin (Tristan) Zhang, Product Marketing Director of AsiaInfo-Linkage said: "Five parties got together to deliver three scenarios that really demonstrated multi-party services. What's more, we accomplished the demos in a five week period. The journey to a new multi-party digital service world starts right here."
