Sunrise Communications AG, the Swiss operator, has deployed Nokia’s cloud-native converged charging software in order to more rapidly package, price and promote a wide range of consumer and business services and to future enhance the user experience for the company’s 3.5 million customers.
Developed for the needs of 5G, internet-connected devices and multi-vendor deployments, Nokia Converged Charging (previously called Nokia Smart Plan Suite) provides the flexibility to react quickly to changing market conditions.
Elmar Grasser, CTO/CIO, Sunrise, said: “We believe in creating intuitive, high-quality experiences for our customers. Nokia’s cloud-native monetization software enables Sunrise to rapidly launch innovative services for our private and business customers, support emerging use cases enabled by 5G and IoT, and further increase customer loyalty.”
5G enables new business speed, scale and innovation, along with growing demands for premium digital experiences. In the era of digitalization, this trend touches B2C, B2B and B2B2x business models and sets a new pace for service launches. This calls for agile, highly flexible Business Support Systems (BSS) capabilities.
Converged Charging offers the performance and reliability required to efficiently deliver high-quality digital services and is built on Nokia’s Common Software Foundation, which makes Nokia’s software products easier to deploy, integrate, use and service.
Nokia together with Sunrise delivered deployment and migration services. With this deployment and the future phases, Sunrise can now quickly create differentiated offers even for the most complex IoT use cases and services enabled by 5G network slicing.
Over 270 service providers around the world rely on Nokia’s Monetization solution to deliver service innovation, covering more than 1.8 billion subscriptions.
Bhaskar Gorti, President of Nokia Software and Chief Digital Officer, said: “5G requires service providers to update not just their networks, but also their operations and business systems. By implementing our Converged Charging solution, Sunrise can improve the customer experience today and cost-efficiently monetize current and future business models.”
