Zain Jordan has selected Ericsson to deploy its Charging & Billing in One (CBIO) solution in a bid to provide more flexible billing options to its subscribers.

Ericsson's CBIO solution will allow both prepaid and postpaid Zain subscribers to benefit from convergent charging and billing. Subscribers will experience enhanced billing flexibility, which will allow them to try new services without facing unexpected costs at the end of the month.

Ahmad Al Hanandeh, CEO, Zain Jordan, said: "This latest step in our partnership with Ericsson will allow us to provide unparalleled billing flexibility to our subscribers and pave the way for the introduction of more advanced technologies in the future."

Ericsson's charging and billing solutions allow operators to handle all customers, partners and services in a streamlined, convergent process and support prepaid and postpaid, voice and data, fixed and mobile, retail and wholesale customers in a single system.

Ericsson's solutions also support new machine-to-machine offerings and advanced subscriber and partner management capabilities, which create vast opportunities for operators to be innovative in their service offerings.

Tarek Saadi, president, Ericsson North Middle East, said: "Zain has anticipated the need for a converged system to work hand in hand with their long-term strategy and with the system's support; they will be able to continuously introduce more advanced technology to meet subscriber demand."
