United Arab Emirates,  September 23, 2020:  Etisalat, one of the leading telecommunication operators in emerging markets, has selected Ericsson’s (NASDAQ: ERIC) state of the art Charging System and Ericsson’s 5G Business Support Systems (BSS) as part of its national 5G network evolution. 
Ericsson Charging will be deployed across Etisalat UAE’s entire network. A dedicated Ericsson Charging and Policy Solution will also be implemented utilizing Ericsson’s cloud-native, micro-services-based Charging Access Function (CAF) which is a new access component within the 5G Service Based Interface (SBI). 
Ericsson Charging, a modular, scalable, open, single convergent Online Charging System (OCS) using industry standards and protocols will allow Etisalat users to control their costs through flexible packaging, bonuses and discounts. 
 
The deal is part of a strategic partnership, which will see Ericsson and Etisalat UAE partnering on digital infrastructure to enable 5G use and business cases. 5G offers Etisalat an unprecedented opportunity to monetize new, immersive experiences such as 5G in Gaming, augmented reality (AR) or virtual reality (VR) applications, - for example, watching a 360° immersive 4K video on VR goggles – along with other innovations that take advantage of low-latency and ultra-high broadband speeds available with 5G. It will also lay the foundation to enhance Etisalat’s position in the value chain and tap into new revenue streams in a variety of industry vertical use cases from smart manufacturing, smart cities, smart ports and logistics to advanced healthcare applications. 
 
Ali Khalfan Ali Al Shamsi, Vice President, Charging and Fulfillment Operations Etisalat, says: “We are pleased to extend our partnership with Ericsson to provide our charging and 5G Business Support Systems as part of the UAE’s evolution to 5G, which is in line with our overall strategy of ‘Driving the digital future to empower societies’.
