LAS VEGAS—Sprint selected Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) to help it deliver a simplified and individualized subscriber database solution, eliminating inefficiencies and added costs usually associated with multiple databases.
Using Apertio’s One NDS (Network Directory Server), the solution will help Sprint operate a Subscriber Profile System (SPS) based on a single, real-time common subscriber database. This also will allow Sprint to integrate new applications by plugging in extensions to the core data model on short notice without service interruption.
The platform also will support a host of IP and IMS-based services and applications over the Xohm WiMAX network.
According to Sue Spradley, Head of NSN’s North American region, “As Sprint paves the way for 4G, we are pleased they have chosen our one-of-a-kind solution to manage and unify their subscriber data.”
NSN also will provide maintenance and system integration services.
