hot-spot, where interconnection represents a key source of potential revenue, has signed a deal to deploy Intec InterconnecT bureau services
"¢ Celcom, one of Malaysia's leading network operators, has implemented Intec's Total Service Mediation Solution, in a contract worth USD$ seven figures, to support its strategic market growth strategy.
"Given current economic uncertainties around the globe, operators are looking for high-performing solutions that will deliver rapid ROI and enhanced customer satisfaction" commented Andrew Taylor, CEO of Intec. "Intec's OSS and BSS solutions have proven track records in more than 70 of the globe's top 100 network operators, and we're delighted that both established operators and new market entrants continue to see the value in our highly relevant, cutting-edge technologies."
With Intec's mediation solution, Exatel, Novotel and Celcom will gain full convergent mediation capabilities thereby enabling the rapid deployment of new services and their respective ability to secure market growth. With proven ability to handle the highest levels of traffic and multi-party settlement with a variety of third party providers, Intec's InterconnecT addresses the needs of dynamic operators dealing with both traditional and next generation products and services.

BBCOM will derive immediate benefit from InterconnecT through driving down the costs of its wholesale business for a limited investment. The deal makes Intec the undisputed leader in the African wholesale billing market, the service bureau system affording emerging operators with a compelling economic model, enabling them to "˜pay as they grow'.
