TORONTO, September 6, 2022 – Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT), the largest communications solutions provider in its country, selected Optiva for cloud modernization to Optiva BSS Platform next-generation full BSS stack. The partnership includes a five-year subscription services agreement with Optiva.

TSTT will move from a Capex to Opex model with pay-as-you-grow commercial terms through this groundbreaking commercial agreement, leveraging the business and innovation benefits of deploying in the cloud. The upgrade will be deployed on TSTT’s private cloud and guarantees faster time to market, monetisation and operational flexibility. It will enable TSTT to quickly expand its revenue streams and launch new business use cases faster.   

As a cloud-native, Kubernetes-based platform, the end-to-end solution will provide TSTT with easier operations, native redundancy, and automated CI/CD delivery. TSTT will gain the advantages of fast rollouts of new features with zero downtime and evergreen software.
