Aptilo Networks, a leading provider of solutions to manage mobile data services for wireless networks, has announced that 3 Scandinavia, a mobile operator providing voice and broadband services over its high quality network, selected Aptilo's advanced Charging Module to speed up their charging process for 3G/4G service and create new revenue generation opportunities. The advanced Charging Module is available in the Aptilo Policy & Charging Server™ which has been deployed at 3 Scandinavia since September 2012.
"The Aptilo Charging Module allows 3 Scandinavia to minimize the number of Call Detail Records (CDRs) which are necessary to handle for billing each user session. The Aptilo Charging Module aggregates CDRs that are generated between the policy enforcement nodes and 3 Scandinavia’s mediation system. The aggregated CDRs are generated at a rate based on the configured policy and the status of each session, e.g. roaming or non-roaming. The policy that controls the CDR generation rate can be based on any parameter that is available, e.g. data from the policy enforcement nodes, customer profile, network session, traffic session and/or user session."
"During our five years of cooperation, Aptilo has shown that their innovative solutions and mindset adapt to the operator instead of the other way around,” said Jörgen Askeroth, CTO, 3 Scandinavia. “The Aptilo Policy & Charging Server simplifies our customer charging process, and gives us the flexibility to rapidly respond to any future customer demands.”
