Altice USA and backend software and services provider Amdocs announced that they have extended their multiyear partnership and will now jointly develop hybrid back-office systems that integrate the vendor’s technologies with those developed by Altice Labs. 

The agreement will seek to put Altice’s disparate Suddenlink and Optimum assets under common platforms, modernizing the cable operator’s systems in the process. 

“By combining the technological strengths of Altice with the capabilities of Amdocs, we are creating a unique infrastructure that will enhance and unify the customer experience we offer in the U.S. as we launch new, innovative products and services for our customers,” said Hakim Boubazine, co-president and COO of Altice USA, in a statement.
