Comptel Corporation, a leading Operational Support System (OSS) software vendor for convergent mediation, charging, provisioning and network inventory, announced today that Gibraltarâ€™s Gibtelecom, an affiliate of Verizon, has now deployed Comptel’s mediation solution, and signed a further agreement to use Comptel’s reporting and provisioning solution. Gibtelecom will be using Comptel’s convergent solutions for its fixed, mobile and Internet services.
Mr. George Gaskin, Gibtelecomâ€™s IT Manager says: “Comptel was selected following a competitive tender for both mediation and provisioning. Obviously, by the time we came to choose a solution for reporting and provisioning, we had already worked with Comptel, so we felt confident that Comptel’s solutions would meet our needs. These solutions will enable us to provide even better services to our customers, while helping combat fraud.”
Gibtelecom chose Comptel EventLinkÂ® because it needed a convergent mediation solution that would be able to handle, collect and process usage information across all networks and services, allowing a greater flexibility in billing for these services. Comptel’s mediation solution offered an off-the-shelf integration with Gibtelecom’s billing systems. The solution is now deployed and live, managing Gibtelecom’s services, including GSM, GPRS and MMS.
Gibtelecom has now chosen Comptel’s reporting module, as well as Comptel InstantLinkÂ® provisioning solution. Comptel’s reporting module replaces Gibtelâ€™s legacy reporting solution that proved insufficient for Gibtelecomâ€™s mobile operations reporting requirements. Comptel’s solution will be used to report on traffic routing and Gibtelecom’s own business needs, but also assist the Company in meeting regulatory requirements. Gibtelecom also selected Comptel’s provisioning solution to activate customers and services on all its networks, replacing an existing solution that did not offer the flexibility and reporting capability required.
Mr. Mikko Saavalainen, head of Comptelâ€™s Global Sales concludes, â€œGibtelecom provides a perfect illustration of the variety of business, technical and regulatory challenges operators are facing in their OSS today. The fact that Gibtelecom chose Comptel for reporting and provisioning after deploying our mediation solution confirms Comptel’s ability to deliver convergent flexible solutions that are valued by operators.”
Gibtelecom, the main provider of telecommunications services in Gibraltar, has played a pioneering role in the growth and development of telecommunications locally and can provide sophisticated solutions to all types of businesses and residential customers using optical fibre networks, satellite communications and microwave links to transport voice, data and internet services.
The result of a joint partnership between Verizon Communications Inc. and the Government of Gibraltar, Gibtelecom an ISO 9001 registered company, provides its customers with products and services matching those offered by leading telecommunications companies throughout the world.
