Comptel Corporation (NASDAQ OMX Helsinki: CTL1V), the leading vendor of dynamic Operations Support System (OSS) software, recently announced that Latin American communications service provider (CSP) Telefónica de Argentina S.A., a member of the Telefónica Group, has chosen Comptel Convergent Mediation to replace its existing vendor’s mediation platform.
Comptel’s real-time, scalable and flexible solution will enable Telefónica de Argentina to more easily and efficiently collect and transform more than 90 million network transactions daily into billable records. It will not only address the operator’s need to improve the delivery and charging of advanced fixed services, but also better Telefónica de Argentina’s operational processes and organisational synergies with Comptel Convergent Mediation already deployed at its mobile operator, Movistar Argentina.
A member of the Telefónica Group, Telefónica de Argentina is the largest CSP in Argentina. It has 23 million fixed and mobile subscribers, from consumers to small- to medium-sized businesses to enterprises in the region. The company has more than three million broadband accounts and 25,000 kilometres of fibre-optic cable capacity in the country.
Movistar Argentina has been a Comptel customer since 2002. Most recently, it upgraded Comptel Convergent Mediation in order to take advantage of the platform’s enhanced performance and scalability. Comptel enabled Telefónica de Argentina’s mobile operator to manage more than 600 million transactions daily, and deploy and charge for advanced mobile services with speed and ease.
Comptel Convergent Mediation, which will be implemented by Comptel at Telefónica de Argentina, 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 BSS/OSS and CRM systems, as well as extend to next-generation environments and services.
