Tango Telecom Delivers Policy and Charging SaaS in the Cloud to help Mobile Operators Grow Business

Limerick, Ireland – 10th July 2013: Tango Telecom, (www.tangotelecom.com), today announced the availability of its new Policy and Charging SaaS to help mobile network operators manage growth, introduce new client services and boost profitability. This Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution is built on IBM® Pureflex™ System.

Tango Telecom is one of the leading policy and charging control solution providers to mobile operators, currently supporting over 130 live systems serving over 550 million subscribers in 30+ countries.  Its solutions help operators to successfully manage and monetise the growing demand for mobile data while optimising their use of network resources.

“As a result of adopting IBM’s smarter computing approach, we can deploy the solution rapidly and have an operator’s policy control applications up and running much faster than with competitive systems”, says Rory O’Toole, EVP of Alliances at Tango Telecom. “Our SaaS solution is an ideal choice for mobile operators who do not wish to embark on a traditional CAPEX procurement and deployment model which may prove to be cost-prohibitive and inflexible to change.”

The Tango Telecom SaaS solution ensures that mobile operators have access to the latest functionality and features such as real-time dynamic and context aware policy as demanded by their evermore discerning subscriber bases.  The cloud based solution is currently available to operators worldwide.
