ASPIDER delivers branded mobile services to mobile network operators (MNOs), such as Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom and mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) in the Netherlands, Ireland, Malta, and the US. The company provides complete outsourcing solutions for voice, data, and content. ASPIDER services are all designed for a rapid deployment of mobile revenue streams for MNOs and MVNOs, providing all of the components: everything from the core network, all the way through to the applications that are used by the mobile subscribers. The company’s solutions are not limited to just the components, but also include complete operations staffing to support mobile brands. ASPIDER has developed a 40% share of the competitive Netherlands market and is expanding rapidly in other parts of Europe and the United States. The company’s subsidiary, ASPIDER M2M, also has a decade-long history in serving energy, healthcare, transport, and security customers in the fast-growing, machine-to-machine (M2M) sector.
ASPIDER chose Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control because of its advanced functionality, real-time charging capabilities, and open platform. The company purchased the Oracle solution to support service delivery to the prepaid market, but also uses the platform for the postpaid environment. Oracle’s position as a leading software and hardware solution provider to many communications sector organizations helped ensure rapid acceptance of the new technology platform by communications service providers.
"Oracle’s continued investment in product enhancements, its long-term development roadmap, and documented upgrade path provides security for us and our customers,” said Luis Carrera, European CEO, ASPIDER. "Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control supports our three sales propositions, which are smarter innovation, improved agility, and faster time to market.”
Oracle Consulting advised ASPIDER on platform design and technical support. Oracle Consulting’s in-depth product knowledge and past implementation experience helped the company deploy the technology platform quickly and efficiently and gain rapid time to value.
"Our first-to-market strategy means we want to be early adopters of new releases,” said Patrick Meyer, vice president corporate development, ASPIDER. "Oracle Consulting provides the support we need to benefit from new innovations without the risk."
