A1 Group awards Amdocs contract for 5G charging

News

The deal is over an unspecified number of years and across the operator group’s European footprint.

Amdocs is to provide the A1 Telekom Austria Group with real-time, cloud-native, microservices-based charging and policy products for 5G and edge-computing services.

The vendor says this is part of a multi-year deal to update A1’s charging in Bulgaria, Croatia and North Macedonia, as well as its policy functions in Austria, Croatia, North Macedonia, Serbia and Slovenia.

Acceleration

The Openet 5G charging and policy control products are intended to accelerate the modernisation of A1 Group’s IT into “an open and dynamic infrastructure, improving time-to-market for new innovative services, as well as the overall experience for A1 Group’s customers across a range of its operating countries”.

The multi-tenancy solutions are designed to improve A1 Group’s total cost of ownership and monetisation.
