WAKEFIELD, Mass., Oct. 18, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Comverse, a global leader in BSS, mobile Internet and value-added services, announced today that JT, a leading operator based in the Channel Islands, has selected the Comverse ONE® Billing and Active Customer Management™ solution to power a significant business transformation that will enable it to increase operational effectiveness and business agility throughout its converged multiple-play portfolio.
