Mtel Banja Luka taps Optiva for convergent charging in Bosnia Herzegovina

Telekom Srbija’s Bosnia & Herzegovina unit Mtel Banja Luka has renewed its private cloud upgrade and support agreement with Optiva.

The operator, which has over two million subscribers in the market, is deploying Optiva’s Charging Engine. The transition to the new cloud platform and renewed Optiva support services will enable Mtel to drive modernisation and operational automation as well as lower its total cost of ownership (TCO).

The Optiva cloud platform affords Mtel a smooth and seamless upgrade, addressing any migration risk to the ongoing business operations and simplifying Mtel architecture and ongoing management of operations. 

“The technical transformation Mtel is experiencing places a high priority on increasing business — not just ensuring our equipment works. We intend to be a monetisation engine, equipping our marketing and business teams with robust tools to remain competitive and provide advanced, digital services to consumers and enterprises,” said Marko Lopičić, CEO of Mtel Banja Luka.

“By deploying our mission-critical, cloud-native BSS on its private cloud, Mtel will increase its capability to innovate quickly, thereby accelerating its business velocity and success in bringing to market new use cases that fully leverage its next-gen BSS capabilities,” said John Giere, President and CEO of Optiva.
