In Equatorial Guinea, Orange-GETESA Strengthens Alepo Partnership with Policy, Charging and Billing Solutions for Fixed and Mobile Data Networks
Orange-GETESA recently expanded its portfolio of Alepo solutions in its networks with an upgrade of charging, billing, and policy control solutions for 2G, 3G, and DSL data services.
Tuesday, January 20, 2015, Austin, TX – Alepo(www.alepo.com), a leading provider of network and IT software solutions for global communications service providers, announced today that longstanding customer Orange-GETESA has recently upgraded to the latest version of Alepo Service Enabler with the addition of Alepo’s advanced policy and charging control (PCC) in order to support its growing fixed and mobile data business in Equatorial Guinea. Wanting to support more competitive business plans for its fixed and mobile data services, Orange-GETESA worked with Alepo to modernize its multi-access technology network environment. In addition to the upgrade of Alepo Service Enabler to support billing and CRM, Alepo deployed its advanced policy and charging control (PCC) solution to better monetize data services across DSL, 2G and 3G networks. A TR-069 Auto-Configuration Server (ACS) was also deployed for remote device management. A major reason cited for this project was the need for streamlined and real-time operations that would enable Orange-GETESA to seize market opportunities as soon as they emerge.
With Alepo’s Online Charging System and PCRF Lite, Orange-GETESA can rapidly create and deliver differentiated services with the assurance of zero revenue leakage. What’s more, Orange-GETESA can send automatic alerts to customers via SMS or email whenever they reach a certain data limit or if a plan is about to expire. “Alepo continues to assure us of its robust and flexible solutions,” said Ignacio Ela, CTO at Orange-GETESA. “A continued partnership with Alepo means that we can respond quickly to changing market trends and expand our business in Equatorial Guinea without costly or risky replacements. With Alepo, we found a partner with the expertise and innovation necessary to support our customers’ current and future needs.” With Alepo’s advanced solutions, Orange-GETESA is able to deliver more granular, QoS-based data offerings to its fixed and mobile broadband subscribers. This includes the ability to dynamically increase or decrease bandwidth speeds, such as for Bandwidth on Demand or fair use policy applications. “We are proud of our lasting partnership with Orange-GETESA,” said Brandon Johnson, VP of Services at Alepo. “As Orange-GETESA’s business and technical needs evolve, we continue to provide robust solutions that enable this forward-thinking company to capture emerging opportunities at the moment they appear.”
