MTN Signs Multi-Year Agreement with Ericsson

MTN Group has signed a multi-year agreement with Ericsson, a provider of communications technology and services, to implement, support and manage Ericsson's Order to Cash suite. This solution enables MTN to standardize the customer experience of its products and services in all the markets it is operational. As part of the agreement, Ericsson will be responsible for the replacement of all legacy infrastructure with its new Charging System, Ericsson Multi Activation and Ericsson Multi Mediation across all MTN operations, enabling customers to activate new services more efficiently and to better monitor their data cost and usage. It will also enable MTN to respond more efficiently to customer related complaints. Ericsson will support, operate and manage this suite of products to ensure the benefits are realized across all MTN operations. Ericsson's Managed Services will allow for an agile launch of services, thus increasing MTN's capacity for innovation and speed that are essential for a sustainable and successful business differentiation. Multi Mediation supports the retrieval and processing of user data from all network nodes, so that such data can be made available to the relevant IT back-end systems and billed in real time. Multi Activation provides MTN with fully automated real-time fulfillment capabilities. End-to-end solutions help operators meet these challenges by helping them quickly develop new products, new packaging as well as pricing models that target specific user preferences, reducing time-to-market. This agreement not only reinforces partnership with MTN but places them in prime position to fulfill their strategic ambitions.
