The joint working group consisting of both companies’ experts have spent several months to prepare and execute all the activities necessary to change the network code (IMSI) and other parameters of the targeted "NTC" subscribers’ SIM-cards in order to migrate them to the network code of "VimpelCom" ("Beeline" brand) that have been completed in September 2013. Thanks to an innovative solution called Trafficland WiTS™ introduced to the "NTC" network, 95% of subscribers were spared from visiting of the "NTC" sales offices, and the MNO - from the need to re-issue a huge number of new SIM-cards. Notwithstanding the OTA update of network code (IMSI) is a very complex operation requiring precise synchronization with the billing and other network systems, all activities have been performed as planned.
According to Alexander Tepliakov, director of the United Primorye Brach of OJSC "VimpelCom": "When we were preparing for the OTA campaign, an important final step of integration of the "NTC" network with "Beeline", we have focused on achieving of the maximum convenience for our customers, that is, to carry out all necessary works unnoticed by mobile subscribers. Therefore, our preference was given to Trafficland LLC – the owner and operator of the highly reliable OTA-solution optimized for the remote update of the IMSI value and having an extensive practical experience in this kind of OTA-campaigns. Now that all our subscribers were successfully migrated to the "Beeline" network without the need to physically replace their SIM-cards, I can only confirm that our choice was the optimal".
"We are very pleased to resume our mutually beneficial cooperation with "VimpelCom". By providing of the most advanced Trafficland solution, which is unique in the world, we had no doubt about the success of this OTA-campaign.
