New Delhi: Nokia Siemens Networks has implemented its data charging system to support Vodafone India subscribers. This will help Vodafone India boost its data subscriber take-up, capture new revenue streams, and reduce operating costs through simplified operations. Unified charging and billing will also allow data subscribers to enjoy greater transparency of their usage and spending patterns with real-time notifications to their handsets.
Speaking about this innovative system, Vishant Vora, chief technology officer at Vodafone India said, “As a whole new generation of subscribers uses mobile data services more frequently, our aim is to better understand data consumption patterns and accordingly offer truly customized data tariffs. As our long standing partner, Nokia Siemens Networks clearly understands our needs. Its unified charging and billing portfolio will help us launch new, flexible data tariff plans across multiple consumer touch-points.”
“The implementation of our unified data charging solution positions Vodafone strongly in a highly competitive market,” added Sandeep Girotra, head of India region at Nokia Siemens Networks. “As a partner for Vodafone’s pan-India deployment, we are unifying the data charging capabilities for its subscribers across India with one platform. This will result in a much higher flexibility in creating new tariffs, in addition to simplified operations, and will lead to savings in operating costs.”
Nokia Siemens Networks will build and operate its data charging system, integrating prepaid systems and other elements in a multi-vendor environment. It will also provide its NetAct network management system to help Vodafone efficiently monitor, manage and optimize its network.
