DISH Wireless just keeps on adding more big players to its roster as it works to build out a 5G network. Recently the company partnered with IBM for 5G automation, but the new carrier announced this week that it plans to use 10x People LLC to manage its telephone number (TN) inventory for its cloud-native OpenRAN-based 5G network.
10x People, LLC started in 2012 and bills itself as the leading leader and pioneer for numbering and inventory products in the US. DISH Wireless will use nVentory, 10x People’s inventory management software that will operate TNs and identity management, thus allowing DISH to meet business needs and industry reporting requirements.
“As we continue to build our innovative 5G network, 10x People will play a central role in our number management process as we track, monitor, and report this important part of our inventory,” said Atilla Tinic, chief information officer, DISH. “10x People’s cloud-native solution will seamlessly integrate with our other OSS/BSS systems, extend our TN management capabilities as we roll out new areas of service, and serve as an innovative platform for the ongoing evolution of our subscriber identity management.”
“10x People is committed to helping connect end-users to DISH’s fully virtualized, first-of-its-kind network through telephone number solutions,” said Lisa Marie Maxson, CEO, 10x People. “Being selected as a TN management supplier by a technology innovator like DISH is an honor and speaks to our position as a leader in scalable numbering solutions for 5G networks.”
