At the recent MWC conference in Barcelona, Total Telecom spoke to Loukas Tzitzis, Chief Products & Marketing Officer, Nexign and Maxim Nartov, Digital BSS Products Director.

Loukas explained how Nexign, one of the leading providers of integrated revenue and customer management products with a Tier 1 operator reference of more than 77M subscribers on a single platform, has launched a new product portfolio that is trying to address the current business challenges of CSP’s and how they can transform themselves to DSP’s. Besides CSP’s ensuring that they select a true end-to-end IoT Platform that addresses connectivity, big data analytics and applications, Loukas explained that operators must ensure that their BSS as well as their Policy control and charging systems need to be updated to be ready for the 5G, partnership-ecosystem based business models of the Digital economy era.

Maxim gave us his view on how Nexign products and services go beyond agility to capitalise on the network slicing capabilities introduced by 5G as well as address the importance of digital channels, omnichannel customer experience and partnerships towards enabling new monetisation capabilities for operators.

About Nexign (fomer Peter-Service)

Founded in 1992 and based in St. Petersburg, Nexign (www.billing.ruen) became the first Russian company to create billing systems for mobile network operators. 26 years later and with more than 50 fixed and mobile communication services providers (CSP’s) in 14 countries using its products, Nexign ranks among the leading providers of innovative IRCM products, solutions and services. The company has successfully delivered more than 120 projects and boasts the successful support of more than 77 million subscribers on a single platform for the largest Russian mobile network operator (MegaFon).

Nexign helps CSP’s to overcome the stagnation of their traditional revenue streams by delivering its innovative products & services portfolio – covering IoT, BSS and Network monetisation- based on Agile, DevOps-based practises that allows CSP’s to accelerate their business model transformation as well as unlock value faster than their competitors on their journey to become digital service providers (DSP’s). The company’s consistent focus on maintaining an industry-best TCO and a partnership mind-set, where its success is linked with the business success of its clients has led to long-term client relationships across all operator tiers on a global scale.

In 2017 and while still operating under its previous brand (Peter-Service), the company was included in the Magic Quadrant for Integrated Revenue and Customer Management (IRCM) by leading analyst firm Gartner.
