Isle of Man-based Manx Telecom has contracted Cerillion Technologies to transform its business support systems (BSS) infrastructure to support fully convergent services across multiple network technologies. By upgrading to the latest version of Cerillion’s pre-integrated BSS suite, Manx Telecom will reportedly be able to offer a more flexible array of services to its customers, while benefiting from lower operational costs resulting from the removal of legacy charging systems. In a press release announcing the deal, it was noted that the rollout of Cerillion’s Convergent Charging System (CCS) to support online charging for all voice, data and content services forms a key part of Manx Telecom’s continued investment in its service architecture evolution programme. Meanwhile, Cerillion will also deploy its Self Service module to enable Manx Telecom’s customers to buy and manage services online. The project is being implemented in close co-operation with session control and data monetisation specialist, Tango Telecom.
‘Cerillion’s convergent charging and billing technology is a key enabler for us to differentiate our services and maximise the return on the investments we have made in our fixed and mobile network infrastructure,’ said Kevin Paige, chief technical officer at Manx Telecom.
