Atlanta/London, October 5, 2010 – Intec, one of the world’s leading providers of Business Support System (BSS) solutions, today announced a multimillion dollar contract with a leading Colombian operator to standardise its operations on Intec’s Wholesale Business Management Suite (WBMS), including InterconnecT, Intec Roaming and Inter-mediatE. The selection was driven by the need for convergent products able to support the demands of next-generation networks and the services they enable.
Intec provides a single vendor, single solution model that minimises the duplication of reference data and improves overall revenue assurance. Intec InterconnecT will consolidate the operations of numerous systems onto a unified platform that will perform the rating, settlement, and traffic management of fixed, mobile and long distance usage. Intec Roaming, which leverages the same wholesale rating engine as InterconnecT, will minimise the impact on operational resources while maximising the knowledge share. Intec Roaming will provide a cost-effective unified solution for all traffic types: voice, SMS and data; in accordance with GSMA standards.
Inter-mediatE will collect traffic from all the diverse network elements and perform the necessary validations, filtering, enrichment, duplicate detection and correlation required prior to distributing the data to post-processing systems, including InterconnecT. The product’s robust functionality and its deployment on low-cost commodity hardware are expected to return a rapid ROI and an overall lower cost of ownership.
“Colombia is considered by analysts as one of the top 5 telecom markets in Latin America,” said Ian Watterson, Vice President, Intec Americas. “We see great potential for Intec’s solutions as the local and regional operators evolve their service offerings and infrastructure. We are very pleased with this latest contract, and look forward to enabling operational modernisation and service improvements throughout Colombia.”
Intec will participate in the 2010 Andicom International ICT Congress in Cartagena de Indias, October 27 – 29. Focused on driving business for the next decade in Latin America, the Congress offers both an academic and commercial program aimed at telecom operators throughout Latin America, as well as other companies that make intensive use of ICT, to examine the emerging technologies and trends and their impact on business strategy and communities.
