QBoCel, a Mexican MVNO that operates on Telefonica’s Movistar Mexico network, has signed a multi-year contract with FTS, a global provider of billing, charging, policy control and payment solutions. QBoCel has selected FTS' Leap Billing for MVNOs that provides QBoCel with convergent charging, billing, invoicing, policy control, and customer and partner management, supporting both prepaid and postpaid subscribers.
Using Leap Billing’s policy control and charging capabilities, QBoCel plans to offer application-based plans such as video, Facebook and VoIP packages, to enhance customer experience and meet user demands for personalized pricing tiers and flexible data plans. In addition, QboCel intends to offer zero-rated data with free access to specific content as well as sponsored data plans, where data is paid by the over the top (OTT) content partner and not by the user.
According to FTS, the multi-million dollar project marks a significant expansion for the company in the Latin America region. FTS also acts as a systems integrator for the project, providing QBoCel with a full MVNO solution, including network elements, deep packet inspection, SMSC, HLR, GGSN, voice mail and IVR from multiple vendors.
