ElitecoreTechnologies Enabling Nationwide LTE Service in Bahrain

Telecoms in developed countries are rapidly reaching full saturation points, which is driving companies to look for opportunities in developing regions around the world. The Middle East is one of the regions that has a disparate socioeconomic makeup. While the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Bahrain enjoy some of the highest living standards in the world, places like Yemen and Palestine offer a very different contrast. Even though there are huge differences, they all offer great opportunities for companies looking to expand. Elitecore Technologies, provider of integrated policy, charging, and revenue management solutions, is enabling Menatelecom, a telecom operator in Bahrain, to offer the first nationwide LTE service in the country.

Menatelecom is the first company in the World to launch a nationwide WiMAX 802.16e end-to-end network and the first telecoms operator in Bahrain to deploy a nationwide 4G LTE network. The company looked to Elitecore Technologies to implement a reliable platform for its LTE revenue and customer management platform along with its ongoing WiMAX Network.

This transformation allowed Menatelecom to offer its 200,000 subscribers effortless activation of multiple prepaid-postpaid services, as well as bundled offerings with LTE + WiMAXdata and voice /IMS on a single platform delivered with seamless integration of products and services with a faster time to market. This gave Menatelecom a clear advantage in the Bahraini market as it continues to introduce the latest wireless technology in the country.The platform was operational and ready to go in just three months.

"We chose Elitecore for its customer-centric focus. The whole project was successfully delivered meeting our key business requirements of integration with the existing ecosystem, performance optimization and operational efficiencies at minimum CapEx, speedily initiate new offerings and enhance overall customer experience," said Abdul RazakJawahery, Chairman of Menatelecom.

The Elitecore LTE revenue and customer management platform gives operators the ability to quickly roll out their 4G/LTE, IMS services and improve overall customer experience with a single convergence platform. This allows them to provide a real-time pre-integrated stack of BSS with online charging, convergent billing, provisioning as well as EPC offerings with PCRF, DSC and 3GPPAAA.

Some of the key features of Elitecore LTE Revenue and Customer Management Platform include:

  • Pre-integrated or modular approach
  • Single data model
  • Real-time analytics
  • Self-care and PoS portal
  • Service provisioning and activation
  • Integrated service fulfillment
  • Real-time policy management
  • Open integration support
  • Centralized diameter routing agent   
  • Highly scalable platform

"LTE's promise of high speed bandwidth and ubiquitous reach is making several operators shift from WiMAX to LTE or have them co- exist. Elitecore has proven itself as a reliable partner for Service Providers to address their migration challenges from WiMAX to LTE and offers the flexibility of either pre-integrated stack, or standalone modular components," saidNikhil Jain, MD and CEO of Elitecore.
