Least cost routing solutions provider Intec, recently acquired by CSG Systems (News - Alert), has been named a finalist in the 2011 B/OSS Live! Excellence Awards in the Best Cost Management Implementation category for its deployment of Inter-mediatE v6 at Vivo, the largest wireless provider in Brazil.
Inter-mediatE is a scalable and flexible convergent mediation solution. Company officials said that it provides the lowest total cost of ownership by running on commodity blade technology.
Thanks to the unmatched cost/performance ratio, Inter-mediatE’s is the preferred mediation solution for Vivo -- with daily processing volumes in the billions. Company officials said that this processing value is critical for all operators since data traffic continues to exponentially grow due to the strong adoption of smartphones and tablets, and the services they enable.
To handle exploding growth in both subscribers and usage, communications service providers such as wireless operators need a cost-effective way to increase performance and throughput.
Carriers such as Vivo are leveraging Intec’s (News - Alert) Inter-mediatE solution to reduce processing costs and improve performance. Company officials said that this is enabling them to not only satisfy consumer demands for new services, but is also ensuring profitability for those services as well.
“By helping Vivo dramatically reduce CAPEX and OPEX (News - Alert), we have enabled them to focus on delivering new services that address consumer demands and drive bottom line growth,” said Michael Henderson, executive vice president of sales and marketing at CSG Systems.
The company is honored to be recognized for its efforts to deliver innovative, proven means to address cost management challenges, Henderson said.
Companies such as MasterCard, the Hutchison group, Reliance, Optus (News - Alert), Telstra and retailer Best Buy are also benefiting from Inter-mediatE.
The B/OSS Live! Excellence Awards 2011 recognize excellence in service providers’ business from both vendor-enabled and internal initiatives.
Earlier this year in April, Intec announced that MasterCard (News - Alert) Worldwide commenced production in January 2011 on it products, Singl.eView and Inter-mediatE.
