· InterconnecT reduces number of CDRs lost, immediately increases revenue

September 19, 2001 London/Paris - Intec Telecom Systems, a provider of telecoms Operations Support Systems (“OSS”), has announced that Bouygues Telecom, one of France’s largest mobile network operators, has gone into production with its InterconnecT™ inter-carrier billing system. The solution was installed by Intec’s experienced implementation team in France and was successfully integrated by Cap Gemini Ernst & Young, one of the leading IT consultancies in the world. InterconnecT has delivered accurate billing results from the first day of production, enabling Bouygues Telecom to witness a quick return on its investment.

Prior to the installation of InterconnecT, Bouygues Telecom used a retail billing system that was adapted to support inter-carrier billing. The company quickly realised that the limitations of the retail billing system could only be addressed with the installation of a dedicated, inter-carrier billing solution. Retail billing systems lacked the flexibility and technological sophistication to manage the increasing volume of call traffic on its wireless network. As a result, a growing number of Call Detail Records (CDRs) were not being recorded, leading to revenue losses for the company.

InterconnecT, the market leader in inter-carrier billing and settlement, was chosen by Bouygues Telecom to replace the retail billing option on the basis of its reputation for scalability and ease of configuration. “The solution responded to our requirements for a flexible billing system that could capture CDRs effectively, regardless of volumes, and help us to quickly calculate our invoices by the end of each month,” says Thierry Alexandre, Network IT Director at Bouygues Telecom. “The billing improvements were apparent from the moment InterconnecT went into production across our networks.”

“Bouygues Telecom is a valued customer and we are proud that InterconnecT has successfully responded to its demanding billing requirements”, said Kevin Adams, CEO of Intec. “Upgrading to a full interconnect billing solution is one way for telecoms companies to ensure maximum revenues in these competitive times.”
