MADRID, Spain -- Eurotel Praha, spol. s r. o., the largest provider of voice and data wireless services in the Czech Republic, today announced that it has chosen NetSpira Networks to provide a new content-based charging system for its GPRS and HSCSD data services.

NetSpira’s ECS platform (Enhanced Charging Solution) enables mobile data network operators to identify the type of data message being sent and received. This enables operators to adjust their charging and service model to maximize revenues but at the same time decrease costs for many customers.

By using NetSpira ECS, Eurotel will be able to introduce service-differentiated charging for its Eurotel Live! WAP and video streaming content, corporate e-mail and MMS services, as part of their single APN implementation.

NetSpira ECS sits alongside the GPRS gateway support node or the PDSN in wireless networks and can support both post-paid and prepaid customers. It is also deployed and in commercial service in Vodafone Spain, Telefonica Moviles Espana and Optimus in Portugal. Along with other prominent GSM/GPRS and CDMA Operators in Americas and Asia Pac.

"We evaluated the main solutions in the market place and found the NetSpira Networks offering very effective and intelligently built, offering the flexibility we require to develop our mobile data services further. It fits in with our current infrastructure so no replacements of existing technology are needed" said Michal Heøman, acting CEO of Eurotel Praha, spol. s r. o.

NetSpira’s Executive Vice President, Salim A. Mawji and CEO, Jose Lopez, jointly commented: "Content-based charging is the way forward for all mobile data operators. Eurotel has joined our band of early adopter customers who are able to increase revenues whilst at the same time pleasing customers who want flexible pricing packages".
