Turk Telekom and Netcracker have revealed that it took seven months to transform part of the operator’s enterprise legacy billing infrastructure.
Three existing legacy billing systems – corporate security, enterprise VPN and point-to-point networking services – were consolidated into a single, streamlined service using the US-based vendor’s Revenue Management solution.
The transformation was limited to the operator’s fixed line operations.
NEC-owned Netcracker said TT had realised operational efficiencies and cost reduction due to the consolidation and improved its ability to support and deliver sophisticated services to its large enterprise customers.
According to its latest financial results, TT’s corporate data business saw revenue growth of 17 percent in the first three months of the year.
Overall, TT’s revenues rose two percent year-on-year to approximately €1 billion, but profits were hit by the Turkish Lira’s depreciation against the US dollar and the Euro.
Cengiz Erdogan, Head of Revenue and Resource Management at Türk Telekom commented: “NetCracker was a clear choice for our business because of its demonstrated track record of successful BSS transformations and its next-generation revenue management quality, flexibility and deep functional capabilities.”
The announcement was made at the TM Forum Live! event this week.
It follows the news last October that MegaFon selected NetCracker and NEC Neva Communications Systems to implement a joint OSS solution.
