Norlys implements Cerillion's billing, charging and customer relationship management software to grow B2B business and its own services
Norlys is Denmark’s largest telecoms and energy group, and says the software deployment enables it to connect its fibre infrastructure to the country's open access wholesale platform. In other words, it is making its infrastructure available to other service providers for resale via a standardised gateway.
The implementation automates service fulfilment and will also allow Norlys to expand its services through partnering other infrastructure owners.
Cerillion believes there is further opportunity to help Norlys realise more growth over the coming year. “We are very pleased to have completed this important implementation for Norlys.
"The structural separation of infrastructure owners from service providers has put Denmark at the forefront of the fibre broadband industry, driving network investments and delivering greater choice and better service levels to end customers."
Magnus Just Olesen, Vice-President of Net Planning at Norlys, said, "The successful implementation of our new BSS/OSS solution…[opens] up significant new opportunities for us to grow and expand our infrastructure business.
“Automating our fibre service fulfilment with Cerillion has created a highly scalable business model which allows us to focus on further network expansion.”
Louis Hall, Chief Executive Officer at Cerillion, added, “The structural separation of infrastructure owners from service providers has put Denmark at the forefront of the fibre broadband industry, driving network investments and delivering greater choice and better service levels to end customers.
"Norlys is at the leading edge of this revolution, and we are delighted to be helping them to grow their business with our digital BSS/OSS solutions.”
A growing trend
As John Strand of Strand Consult point out, Denmark’s TDC blazed the trail: three Danish pension funds PFA, PKA and ATP plus Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets have split the telecom operator into an infrastructure firm and a service company – TDC Net and Nuuday respectively.
Strand said, "We have followed the process closely and call it 'financial acrobatics', but expect the trend to grow in 2022."
