Aepona and Gintel to Help CSPs Launch New Applications for SME and Enterprises
Aepona and Gintel (News - Alert) launched a new Mobile Enterprise Communications Service (MECS) that can help communications service providers (CSP) leverage new and emerging market trends like increased employee mobility.
Built with the Gintel’s Easy Mobile PBX (News - Alert) solution running on Aepona’s IP Services Platform, the MECS is slated to offer an easy way for CSPs to deploy a network environment of any kind and also realize a future-proof platform for launching additional services.
Michael Crossey, chief marketing officer at Aepona commented, “As well as enabling CSPs to immediately generate new subscription-based revenues, the new MECS solution will allow them to attract and retain new customers from the highly-strategic Small-to-Medium Enterprise sector. According to industry analysts Analysys (News - Alert) Mason, the number of SMEs will increase at a CAGR of 0.6% worldwide between 2012 and 2017, but their spending on ICT services will grow more than three times faster. Our MECS solution will allow our CSP customers to capture an increased share of this spend.”
According to Aepona, the Mobile Enterprise Communications (News - Alert) Service (MECS), provided in conjunction with its partner Gintel, is a complete SMB application that outdoes the capabilities of a traditional PBX, whether on-site or hosted, by making use of the public mobile network and standard mobile handsets. The service controls the behavior of internal, outgoing and incoming calls to all employees, switchboard and common numbers, adding functionality for both the caller and the end user.
Ernst Thue, CEO at Gintel added, “This is an opportunity that cannot be ignored. With revenues from consumer markets shrinking and new challenges from OTT solutions, there has never been a better time to target business users. With the Mobile Enterprise Communications Service, CSPs can rapidly build a profitable new revenue stream, and we are very excited to be working with Aepona in bringing this solution to its customers.”
