Elie Hanna, President Ericsson Mexico, Central America and Caribbean, says: “Our pre-integrated solution will help Viva Dominicana expand its data offerings, quickly respond to consumer demands for service bundles by decreasing time to market.”

Ericsson Charging System enables real-time convergent charging, policy control and faster service creation. It lets the operator control credit while letting users control their costs through flexible packaging, bonuses and discounts. Ericsson is a leader in real-time charging, with more than 200 implementations managing more than 1.6 billion end users worldwide.
