Sri Lankan operator SLT (Sri Lanka Telecom) is upgrading its NetCracker billing and mediation environment to the firm’s next-generation billing, rating and active mediation solutions.
SLT is Sri Lanka’s national ICT solutions provider and leading broadband and backbone infrastructure service provider. It provides quad-play services to consumers, encompassing 4G/LTE, FTTx, Wi-Fi hotspots and carrier-grade Wi-Fi technology. It also provides advanced IP-networking and applications to small, medium and large business customers and wholesale network and traffic transit services to global telecom operators and enterprises.
In this transformation project, NetCracker will upgrade Sri Lanka Telecom to the next-generation rating, charging, billing and mediation components of its leading-edge Digital Business Platform. SLT’s existing solutions are pre-acquisition versions of NetCracker’s billing and mediation solutions.
NetCracker will also consolidate SLT’s two existing NetCracker mediation systems onto its innovative Active Mediation platform. This will enable SLT to introduce a range of new pricing, rating and billing configurations that address emerging digital business models, the growing demand for transactional digital services, and the need for personalised customer experience.
This new solution will be integrated with a number of SLT’s existing BSS systems to create seamless, end-to-end revenue management processes and strengthen SLT’s go-to-market capabilities for new services and bundles as well custom enterprise and wholesale agreements.
“The shift toward an end-to-end, next-generation architecture is a sign of an emerging trend that NetCracker is not only witnessing but is enabling for our innovative customers around the world,” said Ganesh Balasubramanian, Vice President APAC and Middle East at NetCracker. “We are excited to help Sri Lanka Telecom embrace this movement and monetize its digital business by using leading-edge revenue and transaction management solutions.”
