Mr. L.T. Wang, Chairman of APBW stated: “With its business logic-based configuration, the Intec mediation solution has demonstrated its capability to help a service provider to differentiate itself by accurately delivering new and innovative communication services, and by leveraging a single converged mediation platform to scale and support the needs of rapid penetration into a high-volume market. We are also very impressed by the quality of the product and delivery team and also the speed of delivery.”
Asia Pacific Broadband Wireless Communication Inc., (APBW) is Taiwan`s first third generation (3G) broadband wireless service provider. Established in November 2001, APBW won its 3G mobile operating license and successfully introduced Taiwan`s first CDMA cellular service in 2003.
Intecâ€™s convergent mediation solution is the platform of choice for APBW and its group companies, including Asia Pacific Broadband Telecom (APBT). The adoption of a robust, advanced convergent mediation solution will enable APBW to gain business advantage in a highly competitive environment through faster service launches. The proven scalability of the solution in large carrier environments will prepare the service provider for future growth.

Huawei acted as the prime contractor for this project, with Intec enabling Huaweiâ€™s turnkey project delivery of Intecâ€™s proven convergent mediation platform, assuring APBW revenue streams management.
