CK Hutchison taps CSG online charging solution

CSG announced a new engagement with CKH Innovations Opportunities Development (CKH IOD), a unit of CK Hutchison’s telecom division, to provide online charging solution for its wholesale and Internet of Things (IoT) customers.
CSG at MWC 2013Since 2002, CSG has supported the launch, growth and transformation of CK Hutchison’s Three Group network operators around the world. CSG, as part of this new contract, will deploy its Ascendon solution to provide CKH IOD with a centralized group billing and settlement platform that will support its MVNO and IoT clients.

CKH IOD offers a single point of entry through which customers with multinational requirements can access its global footprint.  CKH IOD has deployed several central platforms and capabilities that Three Group network operators use to launch new revenue streams.

CSG Ascendon will enable CKH IOD’s wholesale and IoT businesses to collect and integrate large data sets, while simplifying the management of various multinational channel partners and digital offers.

Ascendon will enable CKH IOD to launch new services faster, while supporting new, innovative business models through a central, cost-effective, cloud-based platform, CSG said in a statement.

“CKH IOD has grown quickly by empowering wholesale and IoT enterprise customers around the world with cutting-edge digital solutions,” James Kirby, head of CSG’s EMEA business.
