Tunisiana chooses NSN for Network Modernization

Tunisiana, the leading telecommunications operator in Tunisia, has deployed Nokia Siemens Networks' Flexi Intelligent Service Node (ISN) to modernize its GPRS core network. The Flexi ISN, which performs GPRS Gateway Service Node (GGSN) and data charging functionalities, is fully integrated with the existing Nokia Siemens Networks charge@once prepaid solution to enable flexible charging of data services. The systems integration services ensure seamless consumer experience, while managing an increasingly complex combination of new processes and systems. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The deployment enables Tunisiana to combine all in one box a GGSN and an Intelligent Charging Node. The deployed Flexi ISN 3.1 system is able, through deep packet inspection, to distinguish the type of traffic such as HTTP browsing, WAP browsing, MMS, streaming, content download thus enabling different charging models based on the type of data service used.

Tunisiana's network has 1449 base stations.
