Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Nov. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Huawei and its partners have won the Outstanding Use of TM Forum Assets Award for the TM Forum Catalyst Project “App Trading Marketplace: A Framework for CSP Collaboration” at the TM Forum Digital Transformation Asia (DTA) in Kuala Lumpur.

Some 17 Catalyst teams, including more than 60 companies and over 200 individuals participated in the 2019 DTA Catalyst Project, judged by the TM Forum’s Collaboration Sub-Committee, which oversees the creation and adoption of pragmatic best practices and standards to meet industry needs and deliver value for the membership.

Objectives of the Catalyst Project

The objective of the Catalyst Project is to explore collaboration and innovation via a marketplace where telcos can come together and find synergies by sharing success stories with other telcos. The marketplace is the first of its kind for telcos and will allow CSPs to share the service they have created profitably in non-competing geographies so that another telco can replicate the success story in another part of the world in an instant to extend the same service to its subscribers.
