Partnership will speed integration and improve time-to-market for next generation IP services
Reading, UK, November 21, 2001- XACCT Technologies, the leading provider of business infrastructure software solutions for IP networks, today announced its participation in Convergys’ Geneva Carrier Grade Real-Time (CGRT) partner program, part of Convergys’ new Geneva Active Revenue Management (ARM) initiative. Under the program, XACCT and Convergys will develop and test integrations of XACCT’s real-time N2B platform with Convergys’ new Carrier Grade Real-Time interface to its Geneva’s active rating engine.
XACCT’s business infrastructure platform serves as a single, bi-directional point of interface between a network service provider’s back-office and the physical network. XACCT’s real-time N2B platform and the CGRT functionality from the Geneva ARM software provide a secure foundation for new content and commerce-based business models. Geneva’s active rating engine provides real-time features including: fail-over management, load balancing, and rejected handling, with XACCT providing mediation and connections to the network. Together, the two products support revenue generation and assurance all the way from the physical network through to billing.
“Our on-going partnership with Convergys provides the market with a proven solution to help service providers deploy new, value-based services quickly and cost effectively and maximize revenue streams,” said Anil Uberoi, senior vice president of marketing and business development at XACCT. “Active participation in Convergys’ Geneva CGRT program further demonstrates our continued commitment to bringing together best-of-breed products that leverage XACCT’s core technology platform to create complete solutions for communications carriers, worldwide.”
“Close collaboration with our key partners allows us to ensure that our technologies integrate seamlessly, and that we are able to help operators speed the deployment of new services,” said Stephen Thomas, managing director of Convergys EMEA. “Geneva version 5.0 provides the market with a step change in real-time capability. We are pleased that industry-leading partners like XACCT share our vision.”
