March 14, 2014 A number of telecom companies boosted their software service footprint this past week, including Redknee Solutions, which announced it joined ETIS. Redknee said that by joining ETIS, a membership-based telecom organization, it expects to receive support for its software offerings by making more solutions available for communication service provider clients. The addition of Redknee into the ETIS circle illustrates the increasingly blurred lines separating the enterprise and carrier BSS and OSS systems.

Fred Werner, ETIS communications and program director, noted that Redknee is an optimal example of a BSS software provider identifying the advantages of collaborating with the organization to boost business performance.

"By participating in the ETIS community, Redknee is able to share invaluable knowledge that will further develop our software solutions to meet the requirements of our service provider customers," said Redknee CEO Lucas Skoczkowski.
