NEW DELHI - Telecom operator Aircel has awarded a five-year multi-million-dollar contract to Telcordia, a global communication software service provider, for implementing its real-time charging solution, the company said Tuesday.
Aircel is a joint venture between Malaysia’s Maxis Communications and India’s Apollo HOspitals Group.
“Aircel has awarded Telcordia a five-year, multi-million dollar contract for Telcordia Real-Time Charging, a flexible charging and policy control solution for their mobile prepaid subscribers,” the company said in a statement.
Earlier Telcordia had deployed the solution in just five months on a trial basis, powering Aircels pan-India network rollout and supporting the introduction of interactive real-time services and tariff plans.
“We selected Telcordias leading edge solution because it provides us with the reliability and scalability we need to support our business strategy of delivering service innovation to millions of subscribers, said Gurdeep Singh, chief operating officer Aircel Cellular.
“Telcordia implemented the entire solution in record time. The prepaid solution is flexible and vendor agnostic, which means that we are able to easily and quickly implement new service offers, which will attract more customers and build our market share, he added.
The real-time charging solution is emerging as a market leader for next generation prepaid services in high growth and highly competitive markets.
