MATRIXX, alongside partners Verizon, Vodafone, Blue Planet, Gotransverse and Salesforce, honored for their Supercharged Edge-Aware Marketplaces project
Silicon Valley, Calif., September 28, 2022 — MATRIXX Software, a global leader in 5G monetization solutions, today announced it was jointly honored with a TM Forum Catalyst Award in Best Ecosystem Design for the second year in a row. Building on the success of last year’s award-winning project, the Supercharged Edge-Aware Marketplaces solution demonstrated the power of real-time business, network orchestration and insights to unlock 5G monetization opportunities made possible by network slicing and multi-access edge computing (MEC). Project partners included Verizon, Vodafone Group, Blue Planet, Gotransverse and Salesforce.
“More than ever, Communication Service Providers (CSPs) are seeking ways to generate additional revenue streams in both enterprise and consumer markets,” said Marc Price, CTO of MATRIXX Software. “This catalyst project demonstrates how easily CSPs can create branded marketplaces, tapping into a growing partner ecosystem for connected services and devices. We’re pleased to be recognized by TM Forum as a leading company with our industry partners, demonstrating the next wave of monetization models for B2B2X solutions.”
Debuting at TM Forum’s Digital Transformation World conference, the Supercharged Edge-Aware Marketplace catalyst showcases how CSPs can simplify delivery of industry-specific, B2B2X offers. Highlighting a construction industry use case, the award-winning project demonstrates how CSPs can leverage both applications and network capabilities to deliver connectivity-as-a-service. By leveraging real-time performance and end-to-end awareness to adapt operator infrastructure and resources on-demand, this catalyst validates the potential of 5G B2B2X marketplaces to pave the way for more dynamic, value-based pricing and monetization strategies.
“The Supercharged Edge-Aware Marketplaces project team effectively storyboarded how the business and commercial benefits of the Ecosystem centric approach will benefit key stakeholders such as CSPs, Partners and Enterprises in a B2B2X marketplace,” said Kevin McCaffrey, CEO of Tr3Dent and TM Forum Catalyst Team Award judge. “TM Forum ODA and Zero-Touch Partnering standards were used very effectively and this project is an excellent example to show how the best practices can be practically applied.”
The TM Forum Catalyst Awards celebrate the most revolutionary successes in advancing the telecoms industry, proofs-of-concept for industry standards, impact on global sustainability goals and noteworthy contributions to the acceleration of digital transformation throughout the industry.
