Vodafone Idea, Ericsson complete charging consolidation program
Vodafone Idea (Vi) and Ericsson have successfully completed one of the world’s largest Charging consolidation programs in India. Ericsson has completed the charging consolidation program for VIL, replacing three existing Online Charging Solutions (OCS) with Ericsson Charging as the single OCS solution across India. The program is one of the industry’s largest successful installations of this type to date globally. This consolidated online charging solution with integrated data policy architecture enables faster product launches and better, more efficient ways of working.
With this, Vi now has a simplified prepaid charging stack, which brings uniformity of architecture in Charging and data Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF), customer experience, life cycle management, product modelling and configuration, features and functions. The solution takes advantage of the pre-integration of Ericsson Charging and Ericsson Policy portfolio (in this case Ericsson Service Aware Policy Controller).
Vodafone Idea is an Aditya Birla Group and Vodafone Group partnership. It is developing world-class infrastructure to introduce newer and smarter technologies, making both retail and enterprise customers future ready with innovative offerings conveniently accessible through an ecosystem of digital channels as well as extensive on-ground presence.
