Vivo Brazil selects Intec Telecom Systems to consolidate mediation platforms

Telefónica Móviles and Portugal Telecom wireless joint venture Vivo signs contract for Intec’s Inter-mediatE to collect and process over 215 million voice and IP/data calls daily

April 6, 2004 - Global operations support systems (OSS) provider Intec Telecom Systems has won the mediation software contract for Vivo, a joint venture between Telefónica Móviles and Portugal Telecom. Vivo will use Intec’s mobile mediation solution to consolidate six different companies throughout Brazil into one data collection centre. The contract includes Intec’s Inter-mediatE™ convergent mobile mediation platform with Duplicate and Correlation Manager as well as Inter-mediatE Reporting. Vivo joins several other major service providers in North America and Europe who have recently chosen to consolidate multiple companies or platforms into a single convergent Inter-mediatE platform.

Vivo has more than 21 million customers in 19 Brazilian states, including the Federal District, covering 86 percent of the region. The Brazilian mobile market is experiencing very rapid growth. Anatel, Brazil's telecommunications regulator, estimated mobile phone users in Brazil at 46.4 million at the end of 2003.

"As shown in benchmark testing, Inter-mediatE is capable of processing more than 1.2 billion network events per hour," said Per Martell, Caribbean and Latin American operations director for Intec. "Inter-mediatE was the mediation platform of choice for each of the individual companies that now form Vivo. Selection again by the Vivo joint venture validates that Inter-mediatE delivers solid business value and a measurable return on investment to all mobile operators, regardless of size."
