· Prepares Swisscom Mobile for future UMTS and next generation billing
February 19th, 2001 – Intec Telecom Systems today announced the signing of an InterconnecT billing agreement with Swisscom Mobile, worth in excess of one million pounds sterling (E1.67m). The billing system is expected to go into production by April 2002.
Intec’s CEO, Kevin Adams said: “We are extremely pleased with this deal, which secures our market share in Switzerland. Intec has already developed an excellent long term relationship with Swisscom as its supplier of InterconnecT software, and we will work towards achieving the same level of success with Swisscom Mobile as it prepares for the future demands of UMTS and 3G technology.”
InterconnecT is the market leader in intercarrier billing, allowing operators to accurately charge other inter-exchange and local exchange carriers for using its facilities. The solution provides superior scalability to also deal with an increase in network traffic, while minimising operational overhead in settling with other carriers.
