• Installing the latest SIGTRAN signaling technology

• Adopting a strategy of outsourcing components of IT services

Having been able to launch services on schedule helped us save approximately Rs.25 crores by using innovative ways of enterprise architecture design and best practices underlined in ITIL and BSM,” added Mr. Batra.

During this project, MTS has set industry benchmarks by deploying several innovations like CDMA mobile services used the concept of RUIMS (analogous to SIMS in GSM) that delinks a handset from the mobile number. This initiative has unveiled a whole new world for CDMA subscribers in India, who now have a choice to select the CDMA operator without the need to change their handset.
