--  Oracle today announced that CenterNet S.A., an Internet provider and
    mobile network operator in Poland, has successfully deployed Oracle
    Communications Prepaid Charging to support its intelligent
    telecommunications network, as well as enhance network management and
    billing capabilities for next-generation communication services.
--  As it faced growing competition, CenterNet wanted to improve its
    end-to-end network billing capabilities and launch convergent services
    from a single, common platform to better support next-generation
    services and improve its customers' experience.
--  Oracle Communications Prepaid Charging, a part of the Oracle
    Communications Network Charging and Control product family, served as
    the primary component of the network management system. The solution
    enables CenterNet to improve network control, message processing and
    online charging across all services, networks and payment types for
    both pre- and post-paid customers.
--  Oracle Communications Prepaid Charging also enables CenterNet to:
    --  Support end-to-end network control and charging in real time for
        multiple services -- including voice, short text message service
        and packet sessions
    --  Launch convergent services on a common platform using various
        network technologies -- including the global system for mobile
        communications (GSM), universal mobile telecommunications system
        (UMTS), IP, LTE and cable
    --  Offer a common platform for pre-paid and post-paid services, which
        enables integration with the provider's billing system
    --  Create new subscriptions and accounts without any intervention
        from external systems, thanks to the platform's self-provisioning
        capabilities
--  Oracle Platinum Partner Fujitsu Technology Solutions lead the
    implementation and helped CenterNet achieve the functionality it
    required from its next-generation network management platform, while
    also optimizing total costs.
--  CenterNet has also implemented Oracle Database and SPARC T3-1 servers
    as its hardware platform due to the ease of integration with Oracle
    Communications Prepaid Charging.
