Manx Telecom, the leading telecommunications provider in the Isle of Man, recently announced that it would procure Cerillion’s real-time Convergent Charging System (CCS) to enable the monetisation of online data transactions traversing its next generation LTE infrastructure.
The convergent capabilities of the Cerillion CCS will enable Manx Telecom to run both prepaid and postpaid data transactions in concert to deliver a real-time experience to both customer bases. As a part of this solution, the Cerillion CCS will also be integrated with a media messaging platform which will deliver real-time service information and opportunities to end consumers.
Cerillion’s Convergent Charging System is the result of an extensive product development programme and has been built, from the ground up, according to the latest 3GPP standards. The solution has been designed to interoperate with network elements over Diameter and other industry standard protocols, as well as downstream to the BSS/OSS domain with either Cerillion’s own pre-integrated BSS/OSS product suite, or with 3rd party BSS/OSS components.
“With the introduction of new data network elements with native Diameter protocol capability, this deployment at Manx Telecom will cause very low business disruption and have a short lead time. This is one of the many great advantages our CCS can deliver to our customers” said Louis Hall, CEO of Cerillion.
“We are delighted to be able to capitalise on Cerillion’s leading edge technology to support us in the deployment of our ground-breaking LTE network infrastructure, which will deliver significant long-term benefits to our customers in the Isle of Man. Going forward, we expect to use Cerillion’s solution to maximise the return on this significant investment and deliver a superior customer experience,” said Mike Dee, CEO of Manx Telecom.
