South Korean mobile operator, LG U+ has selected DigitalRoute Usage Management functionality as part of its mediation components of its BSS infrastructure. With the new solution in place, the operator expects to both reduce its IT operating costs and increase the efficiency and effectiveness of its BSS.
According to DigitalRoute, LG U+'s decision to upgrade its legacy mediation was driven in part by its need to address the real-time rating challenges that are provided by DigitalRoute's Usage Management functionality. In addition, the company planned a wider BSS transformation which would simultaneously both enhance the performance of and reduce TCO in its legacy stack.
The initial phase of the LG U+ project will see DigitalRoute replace all legacy mediation assets at LG U+ and implement Usage Management for Bill Shock prevention and real-time Quality of Service control. The second phase of the project, due to commence next year, will include online mediation and the replacement of LG U+s fixed-line systems.
To deliver the LG U+ solution, DigitalRoute partnered with Forelink, an in-region professional company dedicated to software development and Information Technology services and LG CNS, a subsidiary of LG Corporation that provides IT services.
