Ericsson’s User Data Consolidation offering gives MTN South Africa much more than just a future-proof solution to support the evolution of its services offering.


MTN South Africa was looking for a subscriber data management solution to simplify the introduction of new services such as LTE and Wi-Fi, while reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) of its network. But when the operator opted for Ericsson User Data Consolidation (UDC), it discovered it had got a solution that could offer much more than that.

Optimized, flexible, and highly scalable, the Ericsson UDC solution allowed MTN to reduce its number of network databases, lower its TCO, and improve operational efficiency. Moreover, the solution’s unique protection mechanism against signaling storms brought the network robustness to a new level to secure zero impact to consumer services.

In this video, you will find out more about the challenges that MTN South Africa was facing and why it chose Ericsson’s UDC solution to empower its network and provide a better service for its customers.
