London August 6th, 2003 – Intec Telecom Systems, a global leader in Operations Support Systems (OSS) for fixed, wireless, and IP/next generation networks, today announced the successful deployment of Intec’s InterconnecT™ billing system at Slovenské Telekomunikácie a.s. (ST), the major provider of telecommunications services in the Slovak Republic. With InterconnecT, the world’s leading intercarrier billing and settlement system, ST is now able to accurately and efficiently charge mobile operators and other service providers for using its network and facilities. The deployment underlines Intec’s successful business expansion into Eastern Europe. The Polish, Hungarian and Latvian PTTs are existing users of InterconnecT, in addition to a growing number of mobile carriers in the region such as Westel in Hungary and VimpelCom in Russia.
“InterconnecT is an integral part of ST’s wholesale operations,” explains Ron Weintraub, Director of ST’s Customer Care and Billing Program. “The solution gives us the flexibility and scalability to maximise cost-savings through effective interconnect management. This form of billing enables us to compete with new communications providers by simplifying the intercarrier business relationship and giving us the revenue streams to invest in advanced services and innovative products.”
ST has upgraded its legacy interconnect billing platforms with the InterconnecT product, successfully leveraging existing network investments. The InterconnecT solution was integrated by a leading consultancy, with the support of Intec Professional Services. InterconnecT manages the entire rating, summarising, and reporting process of interconnect traffic billing and settlement. ST capitalises on InterconnecT’s flexible architecture, allowing for modular enhancements based on company requirements. This includes scalability in handling numerous intercarrier network agreements and flexibility in introducing innovative services quickly to the market, thereby enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty.
“Intec’s installation of InterconnecT at Slovenské Telekomunikácie is further evidence of our commitment to this fast growing market,” said Kevin Adams, Intec’s CEO. “Our experience with many telecommunications network providers in the region ensure that ST has the support it requires to remain the most successful player in Slovakia’s newly liberalised market.”
