Uzbekistan's fastest growing GSM operator, FE Coscom LLC whch operates under the UCell brand, has selected Nokia Siemens Networks' (NSN) charge@once mediate convergent mediation solution to collect and process data for the accurate billing of more than 2.8 million prepaid and postpaid customers.
"Transparent and accurate billing is essential for our customers, so collecting the charging data records and processing them in one place for our billing systems is important for managing the customer experience," said Helge Raitanen, CTO, UCell. "Naturally we also want to keep our network architecture as simple and cost-efficient as possible..."
"Having just one mediation platform for offline and online mediation allows service providers to simplify their networks. In addition, fast growing service providers, such as UCell, benefit from flexible integration with any system as the network evolves," said Mikko Ylä-Kauttu, Head of UCell Customer Team, NSN. "Besides billing, collected information can be used for any purpose including statistics, fraud detection and data analysis or to mediate, for example, subscriber profile data between the network and service delivery platforms."
NSN has provided and integrated the convergent mediation solution for the UCell 2G/3G network, having launched the convergent mediation solution a year ago and having sold it to 20 service providers.
