INTEROP TECHNOLOGIES PARTNERS WITH TANGO TELECOM TO INTRODUCE POLICY AND CHARGING CONTROL SOLUTION

Cloud technology helps operators effectively manage data traffic while

unlocking new services and revenue streams

FORT MYERS, Fla. and LIMERICK, IRELAND— Sept. 16, 2013Interop Technologies, a provider of core wireless solutions for advanced messaging, over-the-air (OTA) handset management, and connectivity gateways, and Tango Telecom, a provider of highly scalable policy and charging control solutions, today announced a partnership to provide a cloud-based policy and charging control solution to United States-based mobile network operators. The technology enables operators to monetize growing demand for mobile data while optimizing their use of network resources.

With an extensive range of revenue-generating use cases available out of the box, the Interop-Tango Telecom policy control platform helps operators improve profitability while enhancing the subscriber experience. For example, operators can offer multiple device or family plans that let subscribers allocate a percentage of their monthly data pool to different devices or family members. Other use cases include support for service tiers, parental controls, prepaid mobile broadband passes, and subscriber rewards programs, among others.

The feature-rich, cloud-based platform enables operators to benefit from quality of service control and other policy services without the CAPEX required for an in-network solution. The highly flexible, standards-compliant technology enables operators to bundle multiple use cases and can be seamlessly integrated with operators’ charging infrastructure. The solution also includes a feature-rich subscriber self-care application that can be customized for individual operators.

“We are pleased to couple Tango Telecom’s unmatched policy control expertise with Interop’s extensive experience in the cloud to provide the most flexible policy control solution available today,” said Damian Sazama, Vice President of Corporate and Product Marketing, Interop Technologies. “Without a large up-front investment, operators can leverage our policy server to monetize growing demand for mobile data while delivering a personalized subscriber experience.”

 

“This is an ideal choice for operators who do not wish to embark on a traditional CAPEX procurement and deployment model which may prove to be time and cost-prohibitive and inflexible to change,” explains Angela Pinette, Vice President of Sales, Tango Telecom. “The Tango Telecom / Interop Technologies SAAS solution offers operators the most extensive range of revenue generating use-cases available now out of the box, including multiple device and family plans, BYOD and bandwidth on demand.”
