Irving, TX and Herndon, VA -- Sprint has chosen Nokia Siemens Networks to implement an innovative subscriber database solution that will simplify operations and provide a more individualized service to enhance the customer experience. The solution, which includes the Apertio One-NDS (Network Directory Server), will enable Sprint to operate a Subscriber Profile System (SPS) based on a single, real-time common subscriber database, eliminating the inefficiencies of multiple databases and reducing administration and cost. Additionally, the capability to efficiently integrate new applications by plugging in extensions to the core data model on short notice without service interruption gives Sprint greater agility to adapt to changing markets.
The platform also will support a host of IP and IMS-based services and applications over the XOHM WiMAX network.
"Providing a personal experience to our customers is a top priority," said John Daley, VP Customer Management for Sprint's XOHM business unit. "Implementing the new database, coupled with our dedicated customer service, will enable Sprint to achieve this goal and help to further position our services at the forefront of the industry."
"In today's market, it is essential for service providers to offer their customers a highly personalized and prompt communication experience," said Sue Spradley, Head of North America, Nokia Siemens Networks. "As Sprint paves the way for 4G, we are pleased they have chosen our one-of-a-kind solution to manage and unify their subscriber data."
The Apertio One-NDS (Network Directory Server) is the leading real-time database for the telecommunications market, with over 46 customer references worldwide. The solution includes subscriber provisioning and operations and management functions that make it easy and cost effective to operate. Apertio was recently acquired by Nokia Siemens Networks.
Nokia Siemens Networks also will provide maintenance and system integration services.
