Limerick, Ireland – 1st December 2010: Tango Telecom, the leading provider of Policy Control, Real-time Charging & Advanced Messaging solutions, today announced the successful deployment of the Tango Telecom Data Charging & Policy Control Platform with a leading operator in Africa, enabling the highly successful launch of its new mobile data services with very competitive and innovative pricing options to encourage uptake.

As well as offering and controlling innovative pricing plans such as pay-per-use vouchers and tiered pricing for light, average and heavy users of data services, Tango Telecom’s unified Data Charging & Policy Control solution has also enabled the operator to offer and manage free introductory access to premium news and social networking sites to incite subscriptions.

Rory O’Toole, VP of Global Sales at Tango Telecom, comments: “The ability to quickly launch usage based packages, independently of the existing prepaid system, was key to the success of this launch in Africa.  The operator needed also to intelligently manage its network capacity to ensure that costs were curtailed, quality of service for subscribers was maintained and revenues were captured following the high uptake of its new data services.  Tango Telecom’s Data Charging and Policy Control Platform ensured that the operator could confidently launch 3G services by providing the tools to easily implement fair usage policies, congestion management, innovative pricing models and tiered service level plans.  Our solutions are proven to ensure that operators can beat the capacity crunch and see real revenue growth from their data services.”
