Alcatel-Lucent’s convergent payment solution selected by Dialog Telecom for the delivery of MVNO services
Paris. Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU)today announced that Dialog Telecom, one of the leading alternative telecommunication operators in Poland, has selected Alcatel-Lucent’s convergent payment solution for its Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) services.
The Alcatel-Lucent 8610 Instant Convergent Charging Suite (ICC), based on the Open Services Platform, will give Dialog the capacity to expand its convergent service offering with mobile prepaid and post-paid services. Alcatel-Lucent will also integrate the platform with the core network of a mobile network operator, acting as a host for Dialog’s mobile services, as Dialog, a virtual operator, doesn’t own a network.
“Dialog wants to be a leader in service convergence among independent operators in Poland. As one of the leading brands in the Polish telecommunication market we are in good position to integrate our fixed, Internet and multimedia services with a mobile portfolio and create a winning quadruple-play service bundle,” said Piotr Mazurkiewicz, President of Management Board of Dialog Telecom. “We chose Alcatel-Lucent because we are convinced that the MVNO capabilities of their solution provide the performance and flexibility required for creating attractive and reliable services for our customers. It was also very important that Alcatel-Lucent has the references of a leading integrator of telecommunication systems, and these skills are vital for the success of this project.”
“This agreement establishes a strategic relationship between Alcatel-Lucent and Dialog for an element vital to Dialog’s target portfolio of convergent services.
We are very pleased that we can help Dialog realize a key piece of its strategy,” said Etienne Fouques, President of Alcatel-Lucent’s activities in Europe, Asia and Africa. “Our MVNO platform fits very well with Dialog’s requirements and future plans. It allows Dialog to create advanced and flexible mobile service offerings, bring them to market quickly and bundle them with other services to meet the needs of customers"
Under the terms of the contract, Alcatel-Lucent will deploy a service delivery platform which includes the Alcatel-Lucent 8610 Instant Convergent Charging suite and the 5900 Specialised Resource Point for IVR functionality. It will also deliver its 8985 Mobile Provisioning system and NGN switching subsystem based on the Alcatel-Lucent 5020 Media Gateway Controller and Alcatel-Lucent 7515 Media Gateway, which support SIP-based OSP applications.
Alcatel-Lucent’s Convergent Payment Solution is industry leading, highly configurable and field-proven with deployments at over 210 operators, supporting in excess of 400 million subscribers worldwide.
