Supports the creation of profitable content delivery and settlement:First customer in place for InterconnecT CPM
Intec, a leading BSS/ OSS software vendor for fixed, mobile and next-generation networks, launched InterconnecT Content Partner Management (CPM), the latest addition to its market leading settlements product suite, at the 2005 3GSM World Congress in Cannes.
InterconnecT CPM offers a unified partner management and settlement solution for all mobile services including data and content services. This includes providers of content infotainment services, mobile gaming and gambling as well as m-commerce offerings. It enables service providers to offer incentives to innovative and successful partners in order to deliver attractive products and services to subscribers. By allowing configurable levels of partner self-care and partner self-registration, service providers are able to manage numerous relationships efficiently. Moreover, through a high degree of partner self-service, costs and overheads can be kept low whilst keeping partners informed and loyal.
CPM is configured to support the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) standard which defines a generic architecture for offering Voice over IP (VoIP) and multimedia services. It is an internationally recognised standard, first specified by the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP/3GPP2) and now being embraced by other standards bodies including ETSI/TISPAN. The standard supports multiple access types – including GSM, WCDMA, CDMA2000, Wireline broadband access and WLAN.
Intec CEO, Kevin Adams, said: “InterconnecT CPM will enable operators to attract high value brands and services to offer their customers. With a proliferation of content providers and the need to add new service partners, CPM will help service providers efficiently create profitable partnerships. By linking with Intec DCP (Dynamic Charging Platform), a real-time, value-based charging solution for advanced data network services, customers can further benefit from real time content charging and settlement.”
InterconnecT CPM is already being implemented with a lead customer, a major North American operator that is offering advanced content services to its customer base.
InterconnecT CPM is a natural evolution of Intec’s best of breed InterconnecT v7 product, which currently supports over 200 customers around the world including mobile service providers such as Vodafone, Orange and Hutchison’s ‘3’ Mobile Group.
