Elitecore and Menatelecom bring first Nationwide LTE to Bahrain

Bahraini operator Menatelecom has successfully deployed its LTE network in tandem with its ongoing WiMAX network using Elitecore’s revenue and customer management platform.

Supporting up to 200,000 subscribers, Elitecore’s platform has supported Menatelecom’s complete WiMAX-to-LTE Transformation by upgrading the existing WiMAX platform to support LTE + WiMAX  components. This has enabled the smooth activation of multiple prepaid-postpaid services such as Voice, Data and bundled offerings (LTE + WiMAX services). The platform was ready to go live in just 3 months.

Elitecore’s converged product portfolio has enabled the operator to launch new LTE and WiMAX Data & Voice /IMS services on a single platform while allowing seamless integration between services and products for faster time-to-market. Online charging of prepaid VoIP and data services over IMS has achieved more competitive and innovative prepaid plans along with single point-of-sale portals to ensure real time customer acquisition and service enablement.

Abdul Razak Jawahery, Chairman of Menatelecom, commented “The whole project was successfully delivered meeting our key business requirements of integration with the existing ecosystem, performance optimisation and operational efficiencies at minimum CapEx.”

Nikhil Jain, MD & CEO of Elitecore, said, “LTE’s promise of high speed bandwidth and ubiquitous reach is making several operators shift from WiMAX to LTE or have them co- exist. Our LTE Revenue and customer management platform enables operators with “Concept-to-Cash” Solution which is scalable, agile and efficient.”
