SWAN picks Cerillion to provide BSS to support 4G launch

23 Oct 2014

Slovakian triple-play broadband provider and prospective 4G mobile operator SWAN has awarded a contract to Cerillion Technologies for the deployment of a new business support system (BSS) to prepare for its 4G launch. Cerillion is providing its Convergent Charging System for online charging and policy control, as well as its CRM Plus, Revenue Manager and Service Manager modules for an end-to-end order-to-cash solution.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, SWAN was confirmed as Slovakia’s fourth mobile licensee in January 2014, paying EUR6.60 million (USD9.10 million) for its 2×15MHz technology-neutral 4G concession in the 1800MHz band. It expects to launch commercial services by the end of this year, and to achieve full coverage the telco says it will use its right to national roaming, which is included in its licence conditions. SWAN reportedly targets half a million mobile customers within two years.
