At the same time, CTM is extending its 2G deployment of the Comptel Event Mediation solution to handle next generation mobile services.
With the planned roll-out of mobile 3G services in 2007, CTM needs to ensure that it had all the right systems in place to be able to provision customers and services fast and efficiently, as well as collect usage information to bill them correctly.
