Marshall Islands National Telecommunications Authority Selects Alepo for Fully Converged Fixed and Mobile Services Billing and Complete BSS

With the new fully convergent billing system, the National Telecommunications Authority (NTA) will have the ability to respond to shifting needs in the island nation with the flexibility to support new services. Further, Alepo’s solution will enable NTA to roll out new, competitive 2G, 3G, 4G, and fixed-line data and voice plans, and to manage and monetize those service offerings from a single converged solution.

Thursday, June 7, 2018, Austin, TX, USA – Alepo, an award-winning provider of core network and IT software solutions for communications service providers worldwide, announced today that NTA Marshall Islands has selected its convergent billing solution as one of the key platforms for its large-scale IT transformation project. NTA Marshall Islands will implement Alepo’s solution to consolidate legacy billing systems onto the already existing Alepo LTE platform with a smooth and successful migration to the advanced platform.

With Alepo’s fully convergent BSS platform, NTA will migrate their existing 2G, PSTN, ADSL, WiFi and IPTV subscribers, offering greater flexibility and a new level of digitized customer experience.  By eliminating the dependency on multiple legacy platforms, NTA will also lower its total cost of ownership. Alepo’s solution for NTA will include interconnect billing, mediation, data warehouse management and CRM.

The new convergent billing solution means NTA will be able to offer a range of prepaid and postpaid voice and data plans. It will include a complete back-end solution designed to allow NTA to quickly design and launch nuanced, policy-driven bundles – such as on-demand bandwidth, family plans and location-based offers – targeted to the specific needs of the operator’s customer base.

Thomas Kijiner, Jr, President and CEO of NTA, said, “With our legacy system, we found it difficult to respond in a timely manner to evolving customer needs. With Alepo’s solution, however, we are primed to respond to market changes as soon as they appear. It’s important to be able to offer a breadth of plans perfectly targeted to our customers’ needs. This flexible and robust new solution will enable us to offer customers enhanced flexibility and capabilities to launch new services easily.”

Vani Manian, Technical Director for APAC, Alepo, said, “Alepo’s solution creates greater data monetization opportunities while simultaneously reducing the overall service activation and delivery costs. Alepo’s expertise and comprehensive billing solution will enable NTA to enhance the customer experience and create the foundation to build a profitable business in Marshall Islands.”

Alepo has several other deployments in the Pacific Islands, including a complete BSS for Tuvalu Telecommunications Corporation in Tuvalu.
