Hutchison Telecommunications to Optimize Mobile Internet User Experience with Comverse Data Management and Monetization
Comverse® (Nasdaq: CMVT), a global leader in BSS, mobile Internet and value added services, today announced that Hutch Telecom Lanka, part of the Hutchison Whampoa Group, selected the Comverse Mobile Internet Data Management and Monetization (DMM) solution for the network’s rapidly growing data traffic, accelerating implementation of new plans and offerings to enrich the user experience and generate new revenues in Sri Lanka.
“Mobile Broadband is expanding rapidly in Sri Lanka, accounting for an increasingly large share of our total business. It is vital for us to deliver the freshest and highest quality experience to our users now and in the future,” said Mr. Anand Prakash, Chief Operating Officer of Hutch Telecom Lanka. “Easy and rapid implementation of attractive segmented data plans and exciting services will increase our differentiation in the market and enable data to fulfill more of its revenue potential.”
The comprehensive solution selected by Hutch Telecom Lanka includes a pre-integrated DMM PCRF Policy Manager with the DMM DPI Traffic Manager and the DMM Application Gateway. The Policy Manager is based on a unique model providing high coverage of desired business cases with excellent performance. Pre-integration with Hutch’s existing Comverse Real-Time Billing makes the solution truly end-to-end for rapid creation of data monetization plans facilitating lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and accelerating time to market.
The rich selection of pre-configured use cases and the easy-to-use operator interface further promote the utmost agility and speed-to-profit for segmented plans, offers, incentives and advanced monetization use cases — including quota-based plans that take into account device information and assure prioritization and QoS for premium services, and location-based plans that leverage cell information and tailored metrics to fine-tune effectiveness.
“Comverse has become a data market leader by enabling smart Mobile Internet service providers like Hutch Telecom Lanka to deliver a richer and higher quality mobile Internet experience,” said Amos Marom, Head of Comverse Mobile Internet Unit. “As a trusted Hutch partner in VAS and Billing services, it is our honor to help them extend their competitive edge by taking their mobile data to the next level of management, monetization and user experience — while lowering TCO.”
“Combining BSS with the state-of-the-art DMM Policy Management and Enforcement supports today’s and tomorrow’s business use cases, accelerating monetization and market innovation,” concluded Marom.
