Huawei Helps KPN’s Telfort Better Serve Its Customers

Convergent Billing Solution (CBS) will allow operator to shorten service delivery cycle

(PresseBox) (Eschborn, ) Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. ("Huawei"), a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, recently held the contract signing ceremony in its headquarters in Shenzhen, China with Telfort, part of the Netherlands’ largest telecoms operator KPN, announcing that Telfort will procure the prepay solution of Huawei CBS. Huawei CBS will help operators build an open and horizontal billing architecture with the capability to support various networks and services.

Huawei currently supplies the KPN Group with extensive transmission and all-IP based core network products. Telfort will have the opportunity to significantly shorten its service delivery cycle for 2G and 3G services with the convergent rating, charging and billing infrastructure powered by Huawei CBS.

The benefits of Huawei’s CBS are manifold:

- It provides common and rule-driven rating engine to offer flexibly configurable tariff plans, enabling short time-to-market to win in fierce competition.
- It adopts customer-oriented data model and offers unified customer view, enabling personalized marketing to attract new customers, reduce churn and boost traffic.
- It supports both prepaid and postpaid subscribers with open and modularized architecture, enabling converged operation and multi-supplier environment to reduce CAPEX & OPEX.

Telfort CEO Mr. Marco Visser expressed his satisfaction with the cooperation with Huawei at the ceremony. He said, “Huawei CBS is an important building block for Telfort’s future service development. This is the first time that the KPN Group has been cooperating with Huawei on services, and it marks a deepening of the relationship between us.”

Dr. Haiping Che, President of Huawei Application and Software Product Line, said, “KPN is a prominent European operator that is highly innovative in adopting new services to grow its competitive edge. Our product portfolio is closely aligned with KPN/Telfort’s strategy and well positioned to meet its needs. We will continue to work closely with the KPN Group to help it achieve its business goals.”
