Poland’s Tel-Energo buys integrated OSS solution from Intec Telecom Systems

Intec signs fourth deal in largest telecoms market in Eastern Europe Valued at over 2 million Euros

January 07, 2004: London/Warsaw - Intec Telecom Systems, a global provider of Operations Support Systems (OSS) for fixed, wireless and IP/next generation networks, today announced an integrated OSS solutions deal with Tel-Energo, one of Poland’s leading telecoms operators. Under the terms of the agreement Intec will supply the company with its InterconnecT™ and Inter-mediatE™ billing and mediation solutions to support the complex and diverse challenges of Tel-Energo’s fibre optic network. Tel Energo is Intec’s first Inter-mediatE and fourth InterconnecT customer in Poland, making the country one of the biggest revenue earners for Intec’s software solutions in Eastern Europe. Intec’s new agreement with Tel-Energo is valued at close to 2 million Euros and includes licence and support fees.

“Poland’s telecommunications sector is in a state of rapid transition,” explains Peter Deane, Intec’s Managing Director for EMEA. “Pressure from the EU and the WTO has forced the state regulator, URTiP, to introduce new telecoms laws that will encourage fiercer competition and increase mobile and fixed penetration rates in Poland. Tel-Energo is responding to this new business environment by investing in InterconnecT and Inter-mediatE. These solutions are specifically designed to support interoperability with other operators and to help carriers launch new services quickly and cost-effectively.”

As a fully convergent solution, Inter-mediatE also allows Tel-Energo to use the same mediation system for both its present voice services as well as its planned introduction of next generation services.

“Many Eastern European operators like Tel-Energo are facing the challenges raised by telecoms deregulation and EU membership requirements,” said Kevin Adams, Intec’s CEO. “Unfortunately most of their in-house billing and mediation systems are not prepared for these challenges since they have been designed for routing simple CDRs and therefore cannot cope with the significantly increased volumes of data from competing mobile and fixed carriers. Fortunately the integration of Intec’s solutions will provide a sophisticated billing package for Tel-Energo’s network. InterconnecT and Inter-mediatE are widely recognised as the very best OSS products on the market today and will offer the necessary flexibility and scalability Tel-Energo needs to achieve its expanding business requirements.”
