The Cerillion solution was delivered by a remote team working in close partnership with MVN-X to ensure that deadlines and dependencies were met, whilst adjusting to changes in working practice enforced by the coronavirus pandemic.
On a growth trajectory which will see them double their subscriber base by the end of this year, MVN-X recognised the importance of pushing ahead with the OCS project in order to future-proof their business with a 5G-ready platform, equipping their MVNO customers with state-of-the-art charging and product catalogue capabilities. With a distributed project team spanning multiple time zones, Cerillion adjusted its working hours to fit with its MVN-X counterparts using daily stand-up meetings and online collaboration tools to complete the delivery of this mission-critical real-time system.
In addition to the clear product benefits, one of the key reasons for choosing Cerillion was their impressive track record of project delivery all around the world. This has proven to be crucial in us completing this strategic project on budget, despite the difficult circumstances that we all face during this pandemic. From the outset, the Cerillion team aligned itself with our project team and partners, using online collaboration tools and transparent communication to ensure that the project would be a success. We are delighted with the results.Valde Ferradaz, CEO of MVN-X
MVN-X provides a turnkey service to MVNOs and currently enables ten South African brands with over 400 000 subscribers between them. With ambitious growth plans to double the number of subscribers this year and to expand into Africa, MVN-X identified the need to upgrade its online charging system (OCS) to support the latest generation of charging options including balance sharing and balance transfers, as well as enabling the MVNOs to become fully self-sufficient and improve time to market. Cerillion’s CCS is a 5G-ready native diameter OCS enabling rapid integration to the host network, reducing complexity and streamlining operations. The Enterprise Product Catalogue provides a platform within which MVNOs can now design and build their own offers, whilst staying within the parameters set by MVN-X.
The world is a very different place now from when we started this project, but I am proud of how our team has responded to the challenges of remote working whilst delivering to a global customer base. We are delighted to be helping MVN-X to meet their strategic goals and look forward to supporting them as their business continues to grow and expands into Africa.Louis Hall, CEO, Cerillion
