LotusFlare Commits to TM Forum’s ODA

LotusFlare signs up to TM Forum industry initiative to improve the quality of the subscriber experience, reduce inefficiencies and offer 5G services offered by communications and media services providers.

Santa Clara, CA - May 22, 2022 - LotusFlare today announced it has signed the TM Forum’s Open Digital Architecture (ODA) Manifesto in support of the telecommunications industry’s move to cloud-native monetization solutions.

The ODA model is designed to replace traditional operational and business support systems (OSS/BSS) architectures and become the de facto standard for open platforms, allowing communications services providers (CSPs) to digitally transform and reduce software procurement, integration and development inefficiencies

LotusFlare has been a member of the TM Forum since 2019 when it committed to the Open API effort and now serves leading CSPs including Globe, Digi, Dish, Verizon, Singtel and Digicel. Signing the manifesto extends LotusFlare’s commitment to continue the advancement of LotusFlare DNO Cloud, a cloud-native digital commerce and monetization managed service that serves as a digital BSS, so as to deliver valuable business outcomes while reinforcing the principles of the ODA for the industry as a whole.

“LotusFlare is pleased to be part of the ODA initiative, a constructive and forward-looking effort for the industry as a whole that brings much need standardization to the delivery of critical new capabilities from partners who support CSPs in their digital transformation,” said Terry Guo, LotusFlare’s Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer. “At LotusFlare we are keen to ensure that all suppliers stop creating a next generation of what might become legacy systems and processes that slow down CSP innovation. The ODA is a very big part of that effort for the industry and LotusFlare is pleased to be part of it.”
