ComArch, a global provider of OSS & BSS systems, successfully completed implementation of ComArch TYTAN Mediation Device, Service Provisioning and Interconnect Billing system at JV Mobile Digital Communications Ltd (MDC)—the leading mobile operator in Belarus operating under the trademark Velcom. The systems presently support more than 720,000 post-paid subscribers with forecasts that will exceed 1 million subscribers by year end.
The systems developed by ComArch, TYTAN Mediation Device, TYTAN Service Provisioning and TYTAN Interconnect Billing assist MDC adjust to the rapidly changing market conditions and improve the quality of services rendered by the wireless carrier. JV Mobile Digital Communications Ltd. noted that their operations are growing dynamically, which is why a new Mediation Device and Service Provisioning platform are required to support the expanding networks.
“We strive to maintain leadership in the Belarusian market which means always being first-to-market with new wireless services provided to our customers. This year we will have 7 Ericsson switches distributed throughout Belarus and Velcom continuously expands its base stations installations countrywide. Recently our technical department has expanded our network coverage to more than 95% where the urban population resides and extended the coverage along the main transportation highways. Velcom today is also the only GSM carrier who operates in all underground stations of Minsk. All the changes we are currently introducing will significantly influence the level of traffic in our networks. ComArch TYTAN Mediation Device and Service Provisioning platform turned out to be one of the more advanced products available on the market and nowadays allows us not only to introduce the sophisticated Next Generation services, but also offers technology that does not pose performance limitations which is a critical value for MDC,” said Sergey Zubkov, MDC IT Director
ComArch also deployed the TYTAN Interconnect Billing system, which allows the efficient and accurate billing of MDC telecom partners. “Belarus is becoming an increasingly competitive market”, says Alexander Voytov, MDC Chief Financial Officer. “This project is a critical investment for us to secure the interconnect revenues. That is why we wanted to work with a strong and reputable company that will be around to help and support us in the future. As ComArch is a renowned market leader in OSS/BSS, selecting ComArch TYTAN Interconnect Billing was a logical choice for us as it has already proven the ability to deal with the complexity of next generation interconnect services. It has the capacity to effectively bill massive volumes of data.”
“We are proud that TYTAN platform performs well for Velcom’s traffic network and operations and welcome MDC as a key customer to leverage our strong position in Eastern Europe. Furthermore, the project proved the competitiveness of ComArch solutions within the telecommunication wireless market," said Christophe Debou, VP, ComArch.
