Rhino Service-layer serves all networks

Open for faster, more competitive evolution and innovation

Unlike traditional telecom service-layer equipment that only delivers functions developed by the vendor, OpenCloud’s products are open. This means that our customers are free to enhance and extend the applications and connectivity of their OpenCloud service-layer when they want, and without expensive, time-consuming change requests.

“Convergence, service agility and cost reductions were the basis of our business case and OpenCloud helped Bouygues Telecom achieve these through in-house innovation.” Bouygues Telecom

Cloud-ready products for virtualised deployment and NFV

Since we started in 2000 we have only developed pure-software products designed to run on common, standard hardware and operating systems.

Virtualised deployment across multiple virtual servers is naturally supported.

Convergent operation across All-IP and SS7 domains to facilitate network evolution

OpenCloud’s products simultaneously operate in SS7 and all-IP networks. Solutions delivered using OpenCloud Rhino can bridge between multiple networks of both types, to resolve interworking challenges and harmonising the service-layer to deliver consistent service experience regardless of which network your subscribers are attached to.
