"After an extensive evaluation of other mediation products Intec's Inter-mediatE was chosen for a number of reasons, including its high level flexibility, which stems from the application's configurable, fully convergent, rules-driven architecture," explains David Craig, CIO at ROMTELECOM. "No other mediation software on the market could better deliver the scalability to allow us to independently control business rules. With Inter-mediatE, ROMTELECOM will be able to roll out new services quickly and efficiently - with real-time functionality - by using the software to format, process and output network data. Intec's relationship with local partners as well as its dedicated support team will also be beneficial to the company both during and after the migration project."

Intec signs 2 million Euro mediation deal in Romania

April 26, 2004, London/Bucharest: 
Intec Telecom Systems has a won a two million euro contract to supply Romania's national fixed line provider ROMTELECOM with Inter-mediatE(tm), the market leading, high-performance, fully convergent mediation solution. Under the terms of the agreement ROMTELECOM will implement Inter-mediatE to centrally manage its service offerings quickly and efficiently, taking advantage of the application's powerful, distributed architecture to gather and process network call data information for use in billing and other downstream systems. ROMTELECOM's selection of Intec as its mediation provider was based on the quality of Intec's comprehensive solution in addition to its strong local service and support capabilities, extensive experience in mission critical OSS and recognised expertise in designing and implementing mediation systems.

The contract win underlines Intec's ongoing business expansion into emerging European markets. The Polish, Hungarian and Latvian PTTs are already existing users of Intec's solutions, in addition to a growing number of mobile carriers including Eurotel in the Czech Republic and VimpelCom in Russia.

ROMTELECOM is the leading fixed line national operator in Romania, supporting in excess of 4 million subscribers across the country with the help of over 30,000 km of fibre-optic cable. The company is expected to increase its subscriber figure by 25% by the end of next year. The company offers a host of fixed line services to residential and business customers, including basic telephony, ISDN, Internet and data services.

In January 2003, Hellenic Telecommunications Organization OTE became majority shareholder of ROMTELECOM, owning 54.01% of the stock. The Romanian State owns the remaining 44.99%.
