Qvantel Achieves AWS Outposts Ready Designation

Helsinki, Finland, 22 May 2024 - Qvantel, a front-runner in Digital Business Support Systems (BSS), announced today that it has achieved the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Outposts Ready designation, part of the AWS Service Ready Program. This designation recognizes that Qvantel and Qvantel Flex BSS have demonstrated successful integration with AWS Outposts deployments. AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any data centre, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience.

Achieving the AWS Outposts Ready designation differentiates Qvantel as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member with a product fully tested on AWS Outposts. AWS Outposts Ready products are generally available and supported for AWS customers, with clear deployment documentation for AWS Outposts. AWS Service Ready Partners have demonstrated success building products integrated with AWS services, helping AWS customers evaluate and use their technology productively, at scale and varying levels of complexity.

“Qvantel is continuously innovating to ensure that our customers can lead their markets and quickly and efficiently grow their businesses,” said Tero Nieminen, CTO, Qvantel. “The pace of innovation and agility that AWS provides delivers significant advantages to our customers. This plus the innovative no/low code approach of Qvantel Flex BSS enables us to help change CSPs to become agile digital companies that go far beyond providing only connectivity services.” 

To support the seamless integration and deployment of AWS Outposts ready solutions, AWS established the AWS Outposts Ready Program to help customers identify products integrated with AWS Outposts and spend less time evaluating new tools, and more time scaling their use of products that are integrated with AWS Outpost deployments.

Qvantel Flex BSS on AWS Outposts provides a fast-track, agile and secure approach for Communication Service Providers (CSPs) to start gaining the benefits of Qvantel’s innovative no /low code approach to BSS. This enables CSPs to quickly open new revenue streams as well as driving new levels of efficiency. BSS contains very sensitive customer and financial information and CSPs need to ensure that data is being stored and processed in compliance with local laws and regulations on data residency. Qvantel addresses data residency challenges with AWS by using Outposts rack, which allows CSPs to run AWS infrastructure on-premises and in their own data centres. This lets CSPs store and process data in a location of their choosing. An Outpost is seamlessly connected to an AWS Region where it has access to the full suite of AWS services.

“Qvantel is a long-established AWS partner. Qvantel Flex BSS is available on AWS Marketplace and we are seeing significant demand for our solution running on AWS,” said Varun Galande, CCO, Qvantel. “We have several customers already running our BSS on AWS. In addition to our existing customers, we are excited to be implementing Qvantel Flex BSS on AWS Outposts for Etisalat Misr by e& to help drive the digital transformation of Etisalat BSS. This will bring many advantages to Etisalat Misr by e&. It can increase their agility, accelerate time to market as well as open new revenue opportunities as Etisalat Misr by e& increase their portfolio to include a wide range of new services. We are thrilled to be working with global leaders and innovators such as Etisalat Misr by e& and AWS to bring new levels of agility and efficiency to the communications and digital services industry.”
