TDT | Manama
Bahrain’s National Broadband Network (BNET) has announced the launch of both Operations Support System (OSS) and Business Support System (BSS) powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform. The move forms part of the complete separation of BNET’s information systems technologies from Batelco’s in line with the requirements of the Fourth National Telecommunications Plan.
The launch of BNET was announced by Batelco Chairman, Shaikh Abdulla bin Khalifa Alkhalifa, in October last year. BNET, in cooperation with Batelco, is working to complete the separation process to enable licensed operators to deliver the latest high-speed broadband services to 95% of households and 100% of businesses across the Kingdom.
The launch also marks the establishing BNET as an independent entity with its own customer services and operations process management. Commenting on the launch, Mohamed Bubashait, CEO of BNET said, “The process of separating the BSS and OSS systems provides BNET with the independence required to manage operational processes and procedures, enhancing the quality and effectiveness of the services we provide to our customers.”
