Tunisian cellco Orascom Telecom Tunisie, which operates under the brand name Tunisiana, has announced the modernisation of its GPRS core network through the integration of Nokia Siemens Networks’ (NSN’s) Flexi Intelligent Service Node (ISN). The Flexi ISN, which performs GPRS Gateway Service Node (GGSN) and data charging functionalities, is fully integrated with the existing NSN charge@once pre-paid solution to enable flexible charging of data services. The systems integration services ensure seamless consumer experience, while managing an increasingly complex combination of new processes and systems. ‘The Flexi ISN offered by Nokia Siemens Networks will enable us to take a step forward in the way we innovate, giving us greater flexibility in delivering advanced data packages for existing and new services. It enabled us reducing CAPEX and OPEX by combining both GGSN and charging session control all in one box’ said Jalel Kamoun, VAS and Pre-paid director at Tunisiana.
