The IP services market promises an essential source of revenue for telecommunications service providers. With an aim to assist the new and existing leaders in this market, Comarch is announcing the latest versions of Comarch Interconnect Billing and Comarch Wholesale Billing with IPX billing modules at the Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) in Barcelona.
Comarch specializes in designing, implementing and integrating solutions and services for telecommunications operators. The new Comarch (News - Alert) Interconnect Billing and Comarch Wholesale Billing with IPX billing modules solutions are designed for telecommunication service providers that conduct settlements according to Global System for Mobile Communications Association (GSMA (News - Alert)) recommendations for network and IPX services.
The company’s solutions offer full support of inter-operator settlements required for IPX as well as short implementation time of bilateral and multilateral agreements. These solutions are meant for providers or telecommunications services, including wholesale departments, as well as HUBs integrating the IP and traditional telecommunication worlds.
Comarch pre-configures and supports the agreements resulting from IPX services in the two solutions: Comarch Interconnect Billing and Comarch Wholesale Billing.
“These solutions handle Cascade Billing settlements in the bilateral, bilateral service hub and multilateral modes, management of complex settlement agreements, based on SLA agreements yet also paying attention to various Quality of Services (QoSs) and the creation of new business scenarios for providers of telecommunication services and partners,” said Piotr Machnik, business development center director, Comarch SA, in a statement.
For a telecommunication service provider, IPX is a service delivered to another provider or bought from them. It is also the network infrastructure, which forms the basis for the delivery of the services.
According to Comarch, IPX solves many problems such as availability for mobile, fixed, carriers and Internet service providers (ISPs) as well as the delivery of services according to the set QoS level. On the business level, it helps in the execution of different types of agreements based on bilateral, bilateral service hub and multilateral Cascade Billing.
Comarch’s telecommunications business primarily addresses the fixed, mobile and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) operators, cable TV networks, Internet service providers and Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs).
