T-Mobile International has plans to deploy an intelligent packet core networking solution from Nortel Network. With this implementation, the Wireless Service Provider pursues the creation of new business opportunities.

Nortel Network explains that this solution will be designed to make it possible for this Deutsche Telekom’s strategic division to implement flexible billing options for subscribers based on the content they have accessed, time spent downloading, or volume of data downloaded. On accordance with T-Mobile plans, these billing features will be used for personalized mobile data services initially across the United Kingdom, with the potential to expand across other T-Mobile European networks.

“This decision aligns closely with T-Mobile’s One Network vision of offering ubiquitous customer experiences across Europe,” said Wolfgang Ptacek, executive director and head of International Division Service Development at T-Mobile International. “We are leveraging our investments in Nortel Networks GPRS and UMTS packet core to deliver new billing and services options. By consolidating these services in the wireless packet core infrastructure, we will be able to accelerate the time-to-market for new services while greatly reducing the operational complexity”, added Ptacek .

In addition to enabling content-based billing, the Nortel Networks solution will deliver an optimized IP (Internet Protocol)-based architecture that will greatly simplify network design and help drive reduced operating costs.
