Wednesday, September 28, 2022, Conakry, Guinea â€“ Responding to growing demand for high-quality data
services, Guineaâ€™s leading service provider ETI SA is transforming its network by implementing digital enablement expert Alepoâ€™s industry-leading BSS Transformation. The advanced platform will modernize the operatorâ€™s existing FTTH services, as well as provide support for the future launch of its fixed LTE network.
The deployment will replace ETIâ€™s legacy BSS with Alepoâ€™s convergent Digital BSS, providing a unified billing and
charging platform for all of ETIâ€™s prepaid and postpaid services. ETI will be able to introduce a range of advanced new offerings, including limited and unlimited plans, pay-as-you-go offers, high-spending and referral discounts, time- and volume-based offers, and more.
Alepoâ€™s Digital BSS will enable advanced invoicing with support for invoices in different currencies, issued in advance and at different frequencies, and issued on demand. The solution will integrate seamlessly with the operatorâ€™s IT and core infrastructure, introducing digitization and automating key processes to streamline network management.
The platform also includes policy control for different services, dynamic offer creation, CRM, online payments, and more. In addition, Alepoâ€™s AAA will bolster network security and enable a scalable network to support expansion as the subscriber base grows.
Alepoâ€™s solution also includes a real-time reporting system that will enable the operator to gain advanced BI insights. These reports will enable ETI to create personalized and contextual plans based on customer usage patterns.
Alepoâ€™s platform will also support data and voice services for the operatorâ€™s future fixed LTE network, for which the operator has recently acquired a license from the Guinea government. Over the next few years, the operator will roll out these services in phases, beginning with a pure data network and eventually introducing voice.
â€œWe have plans to launch our LTE network in the pipeline, but we also wanted to modernize our existing offerings to quickly meet demand from our customers for advanced and innovative data services. Given Alepoâ€™s reputation of rapid and seamless BSS deployment, weâ€™re certain they will enable us to seize monetization opportunities now and into the future as we expand our network,â€ said Latif Taleb, Chairman and Founder, ETI.
Derrick Gross, President, Alepo, said, â€œWeâ€™re proud to partner with ETI in enabling increasingly digital lifestyles in
Guinea. The deployment will empower ETI to modernize their customer experience with enhanced offerings, while better monetizing their network. Alepoâ€™s futureproof Digital BSS will support service innovation as the market evolves and we look forward to being a part of ETIâ€™s growth for years to come.â€
