Mobilink extends Motorola HLS contract

12 Dec 2006

Pakistan cellular operator Mobilink has extended an existing contract with US vendor Motorola for its home location server (HLS) to increase its capacity to 30 million subscribers. The existing HLS order, announced in February 2006, supported Mobilink in meeting its growth plans and reaching its goal of 20 million subscribers, achieved last month. According to Motorola: ‘the HLS solution consolidates silos of subscriber data into a single subscriber-centric database, providing Mobilink with the ability to roll out new services and provision subscribers in a faster and more cost effective manner. Reliability, high performance, high capacity and smooth scalability are inherent features of the platform, which can be smoothly upgraded to support 3G/UMTS as well as the emerging IMS HSS functionality.’
