    Rakuten Mobile picks Oracle’s policy and charging to speed 4G/5G services


    The software will also be onboarded to Rakuten Symphony’s Symcloud Marketplace

    Japan’s Rakuten Mobile has chosen Oracle Communications’ cloud-native converged policy and charging solutions to support its 4G and 5G services. The plan is to onboard the solutions to Rakuten Symphony’s Symworld Marketplace – a sort of global app store for operators.

    For example, Oracle’s policy and charging solutions will help the operator monetise its 4G and 5G networks by supporting new business models and experiences, like 5G-enabled VR theatres (illustration supplied by Rakuten).

    Validating the BSS/OSS ecosystem

    Tareq Amin, Co-CEO of Rakuten Mobile and CEO of Rakuten Symphony, said, “Partnering with Oracle ensures that we are delivering on Rakuten Mobile’s top priorities of maintaining the highest service quality levels and customer experience on our fully virtualized, cloud native, mobile network”.

    Amin added, “The new collaboration is in-line with our commitment to extend our Symcloud validation and support for the BSS/OSS ecosystem players. It also allows us to easily onboard the Oracle solutions on Symcloud Cloud Native Platform (CNP) as a first step to potentially offering rapid and simplified deployment of these industry-leading services to global telco customers in the future.”
