Transformation solutions provider Nexign has successfully replaced the BSS system for Uzbekistani mobile operator Ucell.
As of late 2021, Ucell has been servicing 7+ million subscribers with its 4G networks covering nearly 75% of the country’s major cities and towns. The company was the first to roll out a 5G network in Uzbekistan.
In 2020, Ucell selected Nexign to supply a simplified BSS solution to replace its legacy system, which was struggling with processing new tasks and servicing the operator’s continuously expanding customer base. Numerous local upgrades and the billing system’s closed architecture hindered its further development and support, with customer data spread across several systems that required continuous synchronization.
Nexign replaced the outdated software complex with Nexign Converged BSS (Nexign CBSS), a system supporting different business processes, technologies, and billing options within a single platform. The implementation of Nexign CBSS helps the operator increase its revenues and slash TTM for new products.
The system can handle double the network load of Ucell’s previous BSS system, and currently supports Ucell’s operating 5G network. The new capacities brought about by Nexign’s solution will enable Ucell to expand its customer base and increase the number of data transmission channels without compromising the system’s operability and integrity, which enables the operator to respond to new market conditions and to monetize innovative services.
“Nexign Converged BSS will reduce the load on the operator’s technical department, help Ucell launch new services sooner, and take the user experience of its subscribers to a whole new level” said Igor Gorkov, CEO of Nexign.
