MetaSolv Software, Inc., a global leader in comprehensive operational support system solutions for next-generation communications service providers, today announced IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) support with their convergent activation and mediation capabilities.
MetaSolv brings provisioning, activation and mediation capabilities to all three layers of the IMS architecture, ensuring that the end-to-end needs of provisioning and managing network connectivity, call session control and application services are met. MetaSolvâ€™s activation and mediation solutions provide the flexibility, openness and ease of configuration that enables them to become an integral part of the Service Delivery Platform (SDP) for IMS service creation and assembly. Ultimately providing automated service delivery and enabling the rapid time-to-market needs driven by IMS service innovation. These robust capabilities allow operators to identify new revenue streams and develop flexible pricing models for their end customers.
The MetaSolv IMS solution has the flexibility to grow with your business â€“ important since IMS is still in its infancy â€“ with modular network interface support that can be added at any time to enable new IMS elements as they are deployed. The MetaSolv mediation solution implements the IMS offline charging function, including advanced features for aggregating, correlating, filtering, enhancing and reformatting usage records, which aids in shielding the downstream billing system from any record changes. With superior multi-service support and capabilities including IP MPLS, Mobile, QoS Policy and VoIP, MetaSolv is both experienced and well positioned to help service providers transition to IMS and achieve its benefits.
As referenced in Nortelâ€™s 2005 press release, MetaSolv and Nortel have extended their existing partnership to include IMS. MetaSolvâ€™s next-generation mediation solution enables billing for IMS-based services by providing the critical Charging Data Function and Charging Gateway Function (CDF/CGF) for the Nortel IMS solution.
MetaSolv is currently deployed at over 60 mobile operators worldwide across multiple technologies including GSM, GSM-R, GPRS, 1XRTT, EDGE and UMTS. MetaSolvâ€™s mobile solutions include multi-service mediation, order management, inventory management and flow-through activation of wireless subscriber services. MetaSolvâ€™s solutions are market-proven and deployed for high volume performance and scalability at many leading mobile service providers, including mobilkom, O2, T-Mobile, Vodafone and Brasil Telecom.
