Comptel’s convergent mediation solution was honoured as the Best Communications Industry Solution yesterday at a ceremony held during the IBM PartnerWorld Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. Comptel’s vice president of North America, Brad Niven, picked up the crystal trophy for us, and we are eagerly awaiting its arrival to our Helsinki headquarters. Along with the IBM Beacon Awards, the IBM PartnerWorld Leadership Conference offers insights on business analytics and growth markets to help our customers, communications service providers, succeed.
IBM and Comptel have a long-standing partnership—we have won several customers together where Comptel Convergent Mediation has played an important role. One good example is Movistar Argentina, which was announced last year; Comptel and IBM jointly helped the operator to not only collect and transform more than 400 million network transactions daily into billable records, but also efficiently and effectively deliver and charge for advanced mobile services. This proof point and others were evaluated by leading industry influencers and IBM executives to win us this award.
We are delighted to have stood out among the hundreds of nominations for the IBM Beacon Awards and hope to continue our fruitful cooperation with IBM in 2012 and beyond.
