Zain Saudi Arabia Transforms BSS for the 5G Future

The operator is leveraging the potential of its 5G networks and redefining the customer experience.

CSPs worldwide have invested heavily in creating 5G networks with low-latency connectivity and accelerated broadband speeds. While every operator is certain that these investments are crucial to their future competitiveness, very few have a practical plan for realizing the benefits of 5G. Industry leaders have shifted to BSS and the cloud as crucial areas for developing new revenue streams and leveraging 5G agility. 

Zain Saudi Arabia, a leading digital innovator for mobile voice and data services in the Middle East and Africa, has been at the forefront of 5G development. Ooklaa, a global leader in Internet testing and analysis, has recognized their achievements with the Speedtest Award for the fastest fixed Internet in Saudi Arabia for three consecutive quarters. Zain has received widespread industry recognition for having the best availability, download speed, download experience, gaming support and widespread deployment for 5G throughout Saudi Arabia. The operator is now turning to cloud-based BSS and other innovative software to maximize their 5G investments and build a foundation for even greater success in the future.

Digital BSS Maximizes 5G Capabilities
Zain Saudi Arabia is using the cloud-based Netcracker Digital BSS as the key catalyst for its digital transformation program. The solution will provide the operator with a single platform for transformation and convergence across all payment types and optimize support for B2C and B2B customers. Zain will enjoy lower TCO and an accelerated time to market while providing customers with a premium digital experience. 

Zain will also deploy Netcracker Service Management & Orchestration from the Netcracker Digital OSS portfolio to virtualize their network and deliver multivendor services. These OSS enhancements set the stage for the future automation of network slicing in their 5G core environment and nationwide network for greater 5G monetization.
