Vietnam's VMS Selects Alcatel-Lucent's Convergent Payment Solution

Vietnam Mobile Services Company (VMS) selected Alcatel-Lucent's Converged Payment solution for its 54 million pre- and post-paid mobile subscribers. To support the rapid subscriber growth of VMS, Alcatel-Lucent will deploy its 8610 Instant Convergent Charging Suite (ICC) over 100% of the entire network. The ICC, which enables real-time rating and charging for voice and data services, will allow VMS to quickly bring to market new convergent mobile prepaid and post-paid services. Alcatel Lucent will also undertake the design, project management, integration, installation and commissioning of the solution.

"With this win, Alcatel-Lucent strengthens its foothold as a leading vendor in the Vietnam telecoms market. As the trusted solution vendor of VMS, we are committed to helping them develop and evolve their networks to provide new features and services to an ever-expanding subscriber base," said Sean Dolan, president of Alcatel-Lucent's activities in Asia-Pacific.
