With LTE on the Horizon, Tishknet Iraq Expands its Alepo Partnership to Support Existing WiMAX Services

Tishknet Iraq previously penned an LTE agreement with Alepo for a complete policy and charging solution plus CRM. Recently, Tishknet expanded the scope of the Alepo solution to provide immediate support for Tishknet’s existing WiMAX services as well as Tishknet’s highly anticipated LTE services upon launch.

Tuesday, April 14, 2015, Austin, TX – Alepo, https://www.alepo.com, a leading provider of network and IT software solutions for global communications service providers, announced today that Tishknet, a leading 4G service provider in the Middle East, has extended its Alepo policy, charging and CRM solution to provide support for its existing WiMAX services in addition to its future LTE network. The announcement follows a partnership agreement signed earlier this year between Tishknet and Alepo for a complete LTE core network.

With this project expansion, Tishknet has implemented a single core network and IT solution for both WiMAX and LTE services, significantly reducing capital and operational expenses related to its evolving 4G portfolio. This convergent solution affords Tishknet immediate upgrades in capacity and performance on its WiMAX network while also laying the foundation for the service provider’s highly anticipated LTE launch. With it, Tishknet will be able to make a more gradual transition from WiMAX to LTE or alternatively, to support both technologies concurrently or across different markets.

Alepo’s solution has helped Tishknet in the creation and delivery of innovative services that heighten the customer experience. Tishknet’s commitment to customer satisfaction has been strongly embedded in the company values since creation and listening to the voice of customers, fulfilling their needs and expectations is the key to the company’s growing success in Iraqi Kurdistan.

Dan Stern, VP of Sales at Alepo, commented on the evolution from WiMAX to LTE.

“We work closely with many service providers that are planning a gradual transition from WiMAX to LTE. The ability to reuse infrastructure in a convergent environment and to gracefully migrate from one technology to another are two critical factors of a successful and efficient transition,” he said.

Tishknet selected the Alepo solution as an expansion to its existing LTE partnership with Alepo. For Tishknet’s LTE network, Alepo will provide a complete “LTE in a Box” solution, which features Alepo’s Policy and Charging Control (PCRF and OCS) and Alepo Service Enabler (CRM, BSS / OSS). This pre-integrated solution enables a rapid and more cost-effective launch of new LTE services, end to end.

“Iraqi Kurdistan is an area of rapid growth, with customers increasingly looking for faster, more personalized services,” said Rasty Mazhar, CTO of Tishknet. “With Alepo’s convergent solutions, we are best positioned to deliver innovative services today and into the future as technologies and market trends evolve.”
