April 1st, 2003: Intec Telecom Systems, a global provider of Operations Support Systems (OSS) for fixed, wireless, and IP networks, has signed its first deal in China for its InterconnecT™ solution with China Telecommunications Broadcast Satellite Corporation (ChinaSat), one of the country’s major telecommunications operators. InterconnecT, the world’s leading intercarrier billing solution with over 60% global market share, will be used to manage interoperator billing and to support the rollout of new services for China’s fast growing subscriber base.
“This deal is significant for us in two ways,” said Kevin Adams, Intec’s CEO. “It is our first deal in mainland China, now the world’s biggest and most dynamic telecommunications market. Through working with one of the leading state-owned operators in the country Intec will gain commercial exposure to promote its products and services to other Chinese telecoms companies. Secondly, the fact that InterconnecT was selected above other products in a competitive evaluation is a further testament to the product’s reputation for market leadership and next-generation capabilities.”
InterconnecT is a sophisticated and scalable solution, capable of billing for everything from basic telephony billing to complex IP and next generation technologies. ChinaSat will be able to use the solution for any type of billing scenario, maximising its return on investment.
“Through this agreement Intec has created a solid footprint in the region and is ready to become a major player in the future,” said Aaron Low, Intec’s manager in China. “In the long term we are looking to convert this win and the partnering agreements we have created into future Intec customer relationships. As China’s operators prepare for new technologies such as next generation services, there will be a growing need to invest in OSS solutions with proven support for more complex revenue generation scenarios.”
InterconnecT’s growing list of customers in Asia includes many tier one companies such as Indosat and Telkomsel Indonesia, Maxis Malaysia, FarEasTone Taiwan and VSNL India. A major advantage that Intec offers to Asia region customers is world-class service and support through its Asia-Pacific Centre of Excellence in Kuala Lumpur.
“We have built a strong partnership with a local Chinese consultancy, SuperWay in Beijing, and this combined with our strong local Asian presence was key to winning the contract after a competitive tender process,” explains Asia Pacific regional director John Rocca. “In the past six months Intec has begun to make real progress in China and start building relationships with both customers and partners. This is a groundbreaking first deal for us and hopefully just the beginning of new opportunities in the Chinese market.”
