Mediation technology delivers fast, reliable service enablement platformBarcelona, Spain February 23rd, 2016 – Vodacom, South Africa’s leading telecommunications company, will be extending its agreement with DigitalRoute, the leading provider of data integration and management solutions globally. The new agreement will see the companies continue to work together over the next three years.
The relationship was initially signed in 2014. DigitalRoute’s MediationZone technology is providing a data integration and management platform that drives the transformation of Vodacom’s entire BSS infrastructure. In particular, it is enabling the CSP to:
- Reduce operating costs.
- Achieve IT self-sufficiency.
- Enable new service offerings.
- Reduce times-to-market.
- Provide revenue monitoring indicators.
Achieving these benefits is key to Vodacom’s future success in the highly competitive and fast- developing African telecommunications market. Vodacom’s BSS transformation project covers all its lines of business and sees around 50 million Packet Data Network gateway events and up to 60 million CDRs a day processed by MediationZone, sourced from 25 data streams drawn from elements across its entire network.
Vodacom has been delighted with its relationship with DigitalRoute since the project began. Keith Kriel, manager – Mediation Application Development at Vodacom comments: “DigitalRoute has an unrivalled understanding of its mediation system’s capabilities and when this is combined with an outstanding team of people, everything works truly effectively in the determination and development of solutions with our own team. This relationship has been at the heart of the continued success of our IT transformation.”
Kriel adds: “The advantages of DigitalRoute continue to be significant. Today, we have fewer systems and databases to maintain. The architecture has been simplified and we continue to become more efficient.”
