Telkomsel's digital transformation strategies aim to provide leading user experience and transform Telkomsel from a traditional telecom service provider to a leading digital and data service provider. In 2018, Telkomsel worked with Huawei to migrate package quota management into the Unified Policy and Charging Controller (UPCC) through the Huawei SmartPCC solution. This solution provides rich features and simplified network topology, reducing operational complexity and total cost of ownership (TCO), shortening average time to market (TTM) of MBB packages, and introducing competitive new services.
This MoU aims to further enhance technical cooperation between the two parties in the MBB field. Their joint innovation in core network solutions will accelerate rollout of Telkomsel's new service packages, meet diverse requirements of individuals and enterprises, and improve user experience.
Telkomsel CIO Montgomery A. Hong, said: "Telkomsel and Huawei have established an in-depth partnership during the past decade. Thanks to Huawei's efforts and support, the Volume Base Offload project for quota management was delivered quickly and qualitatively in 2018. In terms of digital transformation strategies, Telkomsel would like to continue cooperating with Huawei for continuous business development."
Liu Kang, president of Huawei Packet Core Network Product Line, said: "I'd like to thank Mr. Hong and the Telkomsel senior management team for the years of trust and support. With our joint efforts, package quota management of 160 million mobile subscribers has been smoothly migrated into the UPCC. This is a great achievement for both of us. Huawei has a deep understanding of Telkomsel's digital transformation strategies. We hope to strengthen our partnership in the core network field and further deepen our cooperation in business and technological innovation. I believe that with joint efforts from both parties, Huawei and Telkomsel will brave future business challenges and grow together on the road of digital transformation."
