Dublin, Ireland and Reston, VA, 4th October 2005; Openet Telecom, a world leader in real-time charging, advanced mediation, and network-edge rating, today announced that it has signed a contract to supply its FusionWorks Mediation solution to Telscape, a competitive CLEC focusing on the US Hispanic market. The solution has recently gone into production.
The initial stage of the project will see complete replacement of the legacy Ericsson BMP mediation solution with a specific focus on numerous areas of possible revenue leakage. With a 100% audit trail of all usage and customer maintainable configurations, the initial deployment of the new system will ensure Telscape has a solid foundation upon which to further grow its revenue.
Our existing mediation solution was developed a number of years ago and is outdated,” commented Louis Cheng, Vice President of Information Technology at Telscape. “It is not easy to make configuration changes and it is difficult to balance and reconcile. We needed a solution we could maintain and operate with 100% visibility for the business moving forward”, added Cheng.
Future phases of the project will see the addition of new IP products and new ILEC suppliers, both of which Telscape will implement and manage both of which Telscape will implement and manage through easy configuration of business logic.
