Celcom will be the first in the country to adopt full suite Cloud-based Operation Support Service (OSS) system to accelerate agility in their automation and intelligence of network management, and pave the way for their journey towards becoming a digital company.
The Digitised Operation Platform brings together Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning technology powered by Huawei’s Operation Web Services (OWS) suite, to enhance Celcom's capabilities in managing increasingly complex networks and services.
It also enables Celcom to transform their daily operations from reactive to proactive and predictive, and further solidify their drive to deliver an awesome customer experience.
The agreement to acquire the platform for Celcom’s network operation was signed by Celcom Axiata chief technology officer Amandeep Singh and Huawei Technologies (Malaysia) chief executive officer Baker Zhouxin. It was witnessed by Celcom Axiata head of procurement Bassaharil Mohd Yusop and Huawei Technologies Co Ltd president Tang Qibing.
Through this partnership, Huawei aims to leverage on its Digitised Operation AUTomation & INtelligence Services Solution (AUTIN), and share global experiences with Celcom to achieve a visualised, automated and intelligent network operation.
Amandeep said that the partnership signifies Celcom’s ongoing commitment in delivering the best network experience to the customers.
“Celcom will constantly continue the evolution of its network with the latest technologies to bring an awesome experience for Malaysians. It is critical that we explore the capabilities of new generation technology with global partners like Huawei.
“The Digitised Operation Platform will increase Celcom’s efficacy in managing our daily operations, readiness in managing potential issues and continuous improvements in our network,” he said.
Tang said, "I’m glad that Celcom chose Huawei as a partner in its digital transformation journey. We certainly hope that Huawei's AUTIN solution will accelerate Celcom’s transition from traditional operations with repetitive manual processes into automated operations.
“Our vision is to build an ecosystem with strategic partners like Celcom, third parties and other industries to unlock incredible value through new services and innovations, which will ultimately benefit everyone in the telecommunications industry."
