Philippines-based cellco Smart Communications has placed an order with Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) to provide its unified charging and billing solution ‘charge@once’, to enable a faster time-to-market for its services. Orlando Vea, chief wireless adviser at Smart Communications, said: ‘The increased complexity in our charging and billing platform… was posing challenges to the rapid development and rollout of new services for our large and growing subscriber base. Nokia Siemens Networks’ unified solution will help us rapidly create and customise a wide range of services to enhance the end-user experience, as well as improve operational efficiency.’
