US-based Alepo has announced a new partnership with Blue Arcus Technologies to launch 4G LTE and Wi-Fi services across the Marshall Islands, on behalf of the National Telecommunications Authority (NTA). As the country’s sole telecoms operator, NTA has opted to upgrade its mobile broadband infrastructure from 2G to 4G LTE and Wi-Fi, in order to provide customers with faster, more reliable mobile broadband services throughout the Marshall Islands, as well as to offer personalised data plans and to create a more modern customer experience. ‘NTA is committed to providing reliable, high-quality communications services everywhere in the Marshall Islands, and by upgrading our networks to 4G LTE and Wi-Fi, we will be able to give our customers and visitors a greater digital experience,’ said NTA President and CEO Thomas Kijiner Jr., adding: ‘We are confident in our selection of Alepo and Blue Arcus to make our vision of 4G LTE a reality.’
As part of the project, Alepo will deploy its convergent, real-time charging and billing solution, which enables service providers to accelerate time to market of new services and offers, to modernise the customer experience with web and mobile app self-service channels, and to differentiate services via app-based charging, service bundles, family and shared plans, pre-paid and pay-as-you-go data plans, flexible promotional offers and loyalty rewards, and much more. In addition, Alepo will integrate with the legacy mobile core infrastructure to create a truly convergent mobile environment.
