GO goes with Cerillion for BSS transformation

Malta’s GO is upgrading its core business support system (BSS) platform to Cerillion 8.2 and implementing additional Cerillion modules including the Convergent Charging System and Enterprise Product Catalogue. GO will be able to decommission a number of peripheral systems as result of the upgrade – driving operational efficiency.

GO is Malta’s first quad-play operator, with a convergent and integrated communications and entertainment offering. It provides fixed phone, mobile telephony, broadband internet services, digital tv, in addition to business-related services such as data networking solutions, business IP services, managed and co-location facilities. It has around 500,000 customers and its biggest shareholder is Tunisie Telecom (TT).

London-based Cerillion says the BSS upgrade will accelerate GO’s time-to-market for new products and offers, enabling GO to rapidly build, test and deploy them based on reusable components and templates. Meanwhile, Cerillion’s convergent charging system will allow GO to innovate its pricing and packages, as well as monetise a new wave of data-centric services and digital commerce. 

“The last year has shown just how quickly businesses must be able to adapt to new market conditions, and it is therefore vital that we have an open digital BSS that supports rapid changes to our products, services and processes,” commented Kelvin Camenzuli, Chief Digital Officer at GO. “This major upgrade project with Cerillion is a key part of our digital transformation strategy, providing us with a standards-based platform and a catalogue-driven approach which not only accelerates our time-to-market, but also helps us to provide more customer-centric services.”

Cerillion’s Louis Hall commented that Cerillion and GO have been working together for the last 20 years as the service provider has evolved into a fully convergent, multi-service telco. “I’m delighted they’re now joining our other customers on Cerillion 8, which will power the next wave of digital growth for their consumer and corporate services,” he noted.
