A tier 2 MNO in the Middle East provides mobile voice and data services to businesses and consumers over its mobile network. Its prepaid and postpaid service offerings are a vital resource to the country’s 29 million residents, 75% of whom are in need of humanitarian assistance as a result of ongoing civil conflict in the country. Optiva Business Value Consulting services worked closely with the MNO to understand its business objectives and make recommendations based on the unique challenges of operating in the country’s political climate.

The Challenge

The civil unrest in the country demanded measures to protect national telecommunications resources. As such, regulators required the operator to move its mission-critical systems – including Optiva Charging Engine™ – to a remote data center, thereby separating the company’s production environment from its disaster recovery. Optiva analyzed the TCO for three options to accomplish that goal.
