Published on: 5th May 2014
Taiwan 's FET (FarEasTone Telecommunications) has selected Amdocs products and services to modernize its charging and billing systems with real time capabilities and facilitate the launch of LTE services.
Amdocs systems have been supporting FET's mobile billing operations for the past 10 years and will now be upgraded to Amdocs' Convergent Charging and Billing solution, based on the Amdocs CES 9 product suite. Amdocs said that it will deliver a full solution including third-party hardware and software, implementation, systems integration, testing, training and maintenance services.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
Following the deployment, FET will have a single, real-time charging engine and a single product catalog to allow the rapid introduction of real-time prepaid and postpaid services and bundles. FET will also be able to support hybrid accounts spanning multiple personas and devices and multi-hierarchy accounts.
"With a single, convergent system that can support huge volumes of real-time prepaid and postpaid events generated from any service, whether mobile, fixed-line or broadband, and on low-cost hardware, FET will be able to reduce operational and hardware costs and cost-efficiently scale the system to support growing data usage and subscriber numbers, as well as additional lines of business," said Rebecca Prudhomme, vice president of product and solutions marketing at Amdocs.
