Intec launches Mobile Business Solution for newcomers, MVNOs

BSS/OSS supplier Intec has launched a new mobile charging, customer and revenue management solution particularly applicable to the developing world. Intec's Mobile Business Solution is intended to meet the needs of mobile operators and MVNOs worldwide for a single, scalable BSS/OSS platform capable of evolving from simple voice and messaging services through to fully converged, circuit-switched and IP-based next-generation mobile services. 

The new solution recognises that the quickest route to market entry for new mobile licensees and MVNOs is through the launch of simple voice and SMS services, supported by a BSS/OSS that affords low cost market entry, ongoing low operating expenditure, easy revenue assurance and solid margins. Up until now, however, customers were restricted to either a functionally limited prepay solution or a disproportionately complex and expensive carrier grade billing system. 

Intec claims to offer an affordable alternative approach, by putting in place the right infrastructure and systems from day one at a cost within the budget of most start-up companies, and with a short potential initial deployment time. As the subscriber base and service portfolio grows, the Intec Mobile Business Solution can be expanded in functionality and, through its natural scalability, to deal with the largest and most sophisticated operation. 

Several attempts have been made to launch pre-packaged BSS/OSS solutions before. However, the reality has been that these approaches have often been too prescriptive, limiting flexibility and service growth potential for operators and MVNOs. The Intec solution attempts to resolve these issues by presenting different options to address var yi ng operator needs. 

This is particularly relevant in developing countries. Customer service expectation and the need for revenue management are no different here from in developed countries, but resources and time scales often are.  

With the growing number of new wireless licenses, particularly in Africa, the Middle East and Latin America, and the emergence of regional operators such as Orascom, Econet, CelTel and MTN, flexible, low cost, packaged BSS/OSS solutions are particularly applicable to developing world situations.
