Today, eServGlobal announced a partnership with SunTec targeting WiMax solutions for mobile service providers with a pre-post paid convergent billing solution.
The global WiMax market is rapidly evolving. A recent report from Infonetics Research, published 22 August 2008, stated,
More than 200 networks are now being deployed and more than 100 other trials are in progress; the market will be increasingly driven by more Tier 1 operators entering the market;
*** Developing countries are the engine for WiMAX market growth, with Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Central and Latin America, and parts of the Asia Pacific being hot-beds of activity;
*** In particular, India, Russia, and Brazil are fast-moving markets with numerous active WiMAX operators and large populations and market conditions to give potential for strong growth; and
*** The number of fixed and mobile WiMAX subscribers topped 2 million worldwide in 2007 and is expected to triple by the end of 2008.
The new WiMax charging solution will combine eServGlobal’s ChargingMax and SunTec’s TBMS-T suite of convergent transaction pricing and billing products. eServGlobal’s ChargingMax allows for a “cocktail” of services, with flexible charging to generate additional sources of revenue. Its integration capabilities and high configurability allow ChargingMax operators to maximize their return on investment with full pre-postpaid convergence on any type of network.
SunTec’s TBMS-T product suite is designed to help service providers of the Communications, Media, and Entertainment (CME) industry launch new services quickly and achieve customer growth.

We are pleased to combine forces with them, and in turn, to strengthen SunTec’s dynamic pricing and billing offering to communications service providers.”
