Cable & Wireless Panamá unifies fixed and mobile data collection using Intec's Inter-mediatE convergent mediation platform

Inter-mediatE consolidates two systems to a single convergent platform to save cost, improve operational flexibility and reduce time-to-market

London – 1 September 2004 - Intec Telecom Systems, a global provider of operations support systems (OSS), has successfully deployed its Inter-mediatE™ convergent mediation platform for the collection and mediation of voice traffic for Cable & Wireless Panamá’s fixed and mobile networks. Inter-mediatE replaced two existing mediation platforms to collect TDMA, GSM and SMS data from Cable & Wireless Panamá’s mobile network. Cable & Wireless Panamá has used Inter-mediatE to collect its fixed-line traffic since 1999, and has now consolidated all data collection for its fixed and mobile business onto Inter-mediatE, creating one point of collection, reducing maintenance costs and improving flexibility as well as time-to-market for new services.

“Successfully consolidating Cable & Wireless Panamá’s data collection and mediation using Inter-mediatE further demonstrates Intec’s leadership in the convergent mediation space,” said Ian Gordon, Intec’s Regional Director for the Caribbean and Latin America. “As telcos continue to consolidate their data collection and mediation processes, they will need a convergent mediation platform that will allow them to easily rollout, manage, charge and bill for new services in order to keep a competitive edge. Inter-mediatE is a high performance real-time mediation platform designed to meet the needs of convergent service delivery on networks of all types and sizes.”

Inter-mediatE is one of the world’s leading mediation solutions, with more than 150 mobile, fixed, 3G and IP operators worldwide. Inter-mediatE's carrier-grade performance, unmatched reliability, and highly-configurable business rules-based processing have made it the mediation platform of choice for companies such as Vivo, Verizon, BellSouth, Telstra, COLT, Eurotel and '3'.
