Oct 18, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
GO, a provider of telecommunications services in Malta, has selected Smart Plan from Alcatel-Lucent, a provider of IP and cloud networking services, for its network services.
Alcatel-Lucent's Smart Plan is designed to help service providers define and shape their retail strategies around fixed, mobile and data commercial offers. For GO in particular, Smart Plan will provide key policy and charging software, enabling consumers to easily discover, purchase and manage the broadband services that suit them.
Along with Smart Plan, Alcatel-Lucent will also be providing GO with its Evolved Packet Core technology- the high-performance, all-IP platform that sits at the heart of a mobile network to ensure the highest quality of experience while optimizing total cost of ownership.
GO is laying the groundwork for its 4G LTE service by putting in place critical policy and charging software to manage customer services usage. GO is the first customer to deploy Alcatel-Lucent's complete Smart Plan solution, which was introduced in February 2013 to help service providers easily shape a retail strategy around fixed, mobile and data offerings. The Alcatel-Lucent Smart Plan platform enables GO to build service offers for every target market -from traditional voice users to heavy mobile data users, making it easier for customers to understand, tailor and manage their own service plans.
Smart Plan deployed by GO includes: Smart Plan Builder empowering GO customers to easily discover, purchase and manage broadband services; SurePay simplifying real-time charging across fixed, mobile and data services; 5780 Dynamic Services Controller (DSC) based on Agile Rules Technology (A.R.T.) and making it easier for GO to implement personalized services faster.
GO also is deploying the Alcatel-Lucent's Evolved Packet Core, including 7750 Service Router Mobile Packet Gateway and 9471 Wireless Mobility Manager/ Mobility Manager Entity (MME) to support the future LTE deployments in the country.
Gianluca Baini, president Mediterranean Countries of Alcatel-Lucent said: "As GO evolves its network, it needs flexible solutions to create personalized offers and business models that drive new revenue streams for mobile data, as well as voice and SMS. What's more, GO can leverage the Smart Plan platform to complement its retail strategy, creating a new and convenient touch point on customers' mobiles."
