Expanded interoperability between company platforms gives mobile virtual network operators end-to-end infrastructure for service/subscriber management
Global communications software company PortaOne, Inc. and PROTEI, a leading Russian infrastructure vendor, today announced completion of interoperability testing between PortaOne’s PortaBilling Business Support System (BSS) and PROTEI’s Home Location Register HLR/HSS and Policy Controller PCRF products. As an expansion of the two companies’ existing technology partnership, this new compatibility gives Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO) a complete, end-to-end solution for managing subscribers and associated services independently of host network operators, and even for launching their own mobile networks.
Last year, PROTEI and PortaOne announced interoperability of the PortaBilling BSS with PROTEI’s CAMEL Gateway and DPI Platform. The addition of PROTEI’s HLR/HSS (Home Location Register and Home Subscriber Server) and PCRF (Policy and Charging Rules Function) platforms provides additional support for critical subscriber information, along with enforcement of the operator’s business policies for wireless broadband usage.
Today’s announcement gives MVNOs and MVNEs an even more robust infrastructure solution for intelligent network services. As markets change and service possibilities evolve, providers need the ability to implement products and services that match both internal and competitive requirements. The addition of Home Location Register and Policy Controller to the PortaOne/PROTEI technology mix makes this kind of flexibility possible.”
Vladimir Freinkman, PROTEI Vice President of Marketing and Business Development
From the outset, it has been evident that the technologies from PortaOne and PROTEI are complementary. It has been our goal to extend the interoperability of our products as far as possible to benefit our mobile network customers. Now, through tested compatibility with Home Location Register and Policy Controller, PortaBilling’s billing, rating and provisioning capabilities provide an even greater level of value.”
Roman Khalenkov, PortaOne Sales and Marketing Director
