Cost Management Category Showcases Superior Performance of Intec Inter-mediatE
ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Intec, recently acquired by CSG Systems (NASDAQ: CSGS) and one of the world’s leading providers of Business Support System (BSS) solutions to the global telecom industry, today announced that it has been named a finalist in the 2011 B/OSS Live! Excellence Awards in the Best Cost Management Implementation category for its deployment of Inter-mediatE v6 at Vivo, the largest wireless provider in Brazil.
Widely acknowledged as the most scalable and flexible convergent mediation solution on the market, Inter-mediatE provides the lowest total cost of ownership by running on commodity blade technology. Inter-mediatE’s cost/performance ratio is unmatched, making it the mediation solution of choice, especially for the world’s largest operators, like Vivo, with daily processing volumes in the billions. This processing value is critical for all operators as data traffic continues to soar due to the strong adoption of smart phones and tablets, and the services they enable.
Communications Service Providers, particularly wireless operators, need a cost-effective way to increase performance and throughput to handle exploding growth in both subscribers and usage. By leveraging Intec’s Inter-mediatE solution, carriers such as Vivo can reduce processing costs while improving performance, enabling them to not only satisfy consumer demands for new services, but to ensure profitability for those services as well.
“Cost control is imperative for the financial health of any service provider, but even more so in highly competitive markets. By helping Vivo dramatically reduce CAPEX and OPEX, we have enabled them to focus on delivering new services that address consumer demands and drive bottom line growth,” said Michael Henderson, executive vice president of sales and marketing at CSG Systems. “We are honored to be recognized for our efforts to deliver innovative, proven means to address cost management challenges.”
Inter-mediatE is a proven solution at other leading companies worldwide, including MasterCard, the Hutchison group, Reliance, Optus, Telstra and retailer Best Buy.
