Comptel Corporation (NASDAQ OMX Helsinki: CTL1V) recently announced that global communications service provider (CSP) Telefónica Central America, a member of the Telefónica Group, has chosen to consolidate its existing mediation systems supporting customers in Guatemala, Panama, Nicaragua and El Salvador with Comptel’s single, scalable platform.
Comptel Convergent Mediation will provide Telefónica Central America with the high performance and flexibility it needs to easily and efficiently collect and transform more than half a billion network transactions daily into billable records. It will also better the CSP’s time-to-market and its ability to meet customer demand for new products and services, facilitate greater organisational collaboration and more efficient business processes, and lower total cost of ownership as a result of unifying Telefónica Central America’s Operations Support Systems (OSS) and maintenance.
Telefónica Central America offers fixed and mobile telephony, Internet and data services to more than eight million customers across Guatemala, Panama, Nicaragua and El Salvador, as well as Costa Rica. Other members of the Telefónica Group, including Telefónica de Argentina and its mobile subsidiary, Movistar Argentina, have come to rely on Comptel Convergent Mediation to support their service control and monetisation needs.
Comptel Convergent Mediation offers an intelligent approach to mediation and charging by hiding network complexity and linking services and subscriber and payment types. Its vendor-independent components will seamlessly integrate with the CSP’s legacy systems, as well as extend to next-generation environments and services.
