O2 contracts Cerillion for Isle of Man HSDPA mediation

31 Aug 2005

UK cellco O2 is pushing ahead with the introduction of high speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) technology on the Isle of Man and has contracted convergent billing specialist Cerillion Technologies to provide a new mediation solution to support the HSDPA network of its Manx Telecom subsidiary. O2 selected Nortel Networks to supply its UK UMTS network infrastructure in October 2004. The two completed a series of tests using HSPDA in early 2005 and full scale HSDPA trials are now under way. Its HSDPA equipment on the Isle of Man has been supplied by Lucent Technologies as part of a wider plan to deploy a converged fixed-mobile network offering all its customers access to ‘blended’ mobile data, multimedia and VoIP services. Cerillion will provide its Mediator system to support the rollout of Manx Telecom’s new HSDPA services. In subsequent phases this will be extended to provide fully convergent mediation for all Manx’s fixed and mobile services. By upgrading to the latest version of the Cerillion CRM Plus and Revenue Manager products, the telco will also benefit from enhanced features including streamlined customer service capabilities.
