Wateen already been using AdvOSS Real time Billing System for Prepaid Calling services from last few years decided to replace its core IN & Online Charging System for its overall Wimax services. They were pleased with AdvOSS platform's robustness, scalability & level of services extended by the vendor. AdvOSS Converged IN & Charging System has now replaced Wateen's previous IN & Charging System provided by Jnetx (An Amdocs product) and Highdeals (SAP Charging & Billing Product for Telecoms).

We are extremely pleased to work together with Wateen and providing them our IN & Charging Solutions. They hold remarkable position in world's Wimax market being innovator to launch one of the first Wimax service and have one of the largest Wimax networks deployed in the world. Migration of real time systems for an operator of this scale was never easy but we are delighted that we accepted the challenge and executed it successfully. We also look forward to further developing our relationship with Wateen group at international level" said Syed N. Hashmi CEO of AdvOSS, Canada.

Deployment of Real time systems for Wateen was complex due to the magnitude of services Wateen offers and unlike deploying a solution for some Green Field operator, AdvOSS had to migrate all services and profiles of hundreds of thousands of subscribers to its system in a very short time-span.

AdvOSS platform can scale seamlessly with the growth in subscriber base of our customers to almost unlimited magnitudes.

Zaidi CTO for AdvOSS.
