KMC conducted a lengthy evaluation of the vendors of commercially available mediation solutions before selecting Intec. George Stowers, IT manager of KMC’s operations center in Georgia said: “Network technologies and network services are changing rapidly. KMC needed a mediation solution that could handle our network and service evolution. Not only did Intec have the best solution for our needs, they are a stable company with local support and development. They are also a very customer-driven company, to which I can personally attest after attending their user group conference in Atlanta in June.”

KMC was impressed with Inter-mediatE’s intuitive user interface that seamlessly manipulates the industrial strength framework of features and functions of the core solution. In addition KMC will make use of Inter-mediatE’s Duplicate Record Manager for enhanced, error-free record processing. The audit capabilities of the Reporting module will give KMC added visibility into the details of what is collected at the switch versus what is billed.

KMC Telecom selects Intec for mediation and revenue assurance solution

Largest privately held US telco to use market-leading Inter-mediatE solution

8 September 2004 – Intec Telecom Systems, a global provider of Operations Support Systems (OSS) for fixed, wireless, and IP/next generation networks, today announced a contract with US based KMC Telecom for the license of Intec’s market-leading convergent mediation solution, Inter-mediatE. KMC, the largest, privately held US telecom operator, selected Intec’s Inter-mediatE solution and associated modules to provide mediation and revenue assurance for its CLEC business line.

An operator’s mediation solution plays a pivotal role in revenue assurance. Operators need a robust platform in place that can capture usage data from diverse network elements, correctly correlate that data, provide automated error processing, and offer integrated audit capabilities. Intec’s Inter-mediatE solution provides ample return on investment from its consolidation of multiple systems for data collection, mediation, and distribution, and the human and system resources required to manage those same processes. Its robust error processing eases the process of analysis and recovery via “edit & release” capabilities, while its flexible reporting can be used to identify trends or usage absence based on any of a number of variables.

“KMC joins a long list of operators that have realised that their existing mediation systems may be a prime source of potential revenue leakage. The adoption of a robust mediation solution that minimizes errors in the first place and then automates and streamlines error processing can have an immediate affect on the operator’s bottom line, especially when coupled with strong reporting and auditing capabilities,” said Fred Brott, president of Intec North America.

Because of its exceptional total cost of ownership, existing users of Inter-mediatE are preparing for migration to Inter-mediatE v5. Along with KMC, two leading RBOCs are already utilizing Inter-mediatE v5, assuring the revenue derived from their networks and streamlining their network processing.
