Turkish operator Turkcell has upgraded to the Ericsson Mediation platform, supporting its ongoing business support systems (BSS) evolution.
The upgrade also increases Turkcell’s capability to handle the data growth of the mobile network, delivering efficiency and management tools across the different generations of networks, including 5G.
Ericsson says its Mediation platform plays a key role in a communication service provider’s network in terms of functions ranging from data processing to protocol harmonization transformations. It supports a variety of use cases in IT, 5G, and IoT with its converged, batch, online and stream mediation capabilities. It also provides communication service providers with a range of deployment options such as on-premises, virtual and cloud-native deployment models.
Acting as a stable, flexible, and uniform interface for data, Ericsson Mediation enhances network simplicity and makes possible reductions in operating and capital expenditures.
This update not only develops Turkcell’s existing online solution by replacing the interfaces with the latest representational state transfer (REST) interfaces, but it also provides Turkcell with out-of-the-box applications for fast solution deployment in key areas such as charging and billing.
Ericsson says that by switching to the latest Ericsson Mediation software, Turkcell will be ready to implement 5G use cases and process 5G call detail records (CDR) within the network.
It adds that, with more than 230 customers worldwide and performance proven to handle billions of data records per day, Ericsson Mediation continues to serve as an exceptionally stable, predictable, and accurate mediation platform and will enable Turkcell to offer services that boost digitisation across Turkey.
