WAKEFIELD, Mass., April 26, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A new report on the mobile Web industry published by research firm Current Analysis lauds Comverse Mobile Internet Hub and details advantages of its Policy Management solution.
The newly released Product Intelligence Report by Current Analysis focuses on mobile broadband, regarded as one of the most promising sources of revenue growth for mobile operators.
With usage skyrocketing globally, mobile broadband presents tremendous revenue opportunities for operators – together with unprecedented challenges. As indicated by the report, Comverse's Policy Management solution enables operators to seize market opportunities by meeting today's big challenges, such as monetizing the data potential with smart charging, preventing network congestion, and delivering premium customer experiences.
"Multi-Dimensional Policy Management is a major point of differentiation for Comverse," noted Joe McGarvey, Principal Analyst, IP Services Infrastructure, Current Analysis. "Deep integration into a comprehensive software platform spanning the operator's network and tight linkage with the Comverse ONE BSS system lets operators leverage a variety of sources (network, IT and subscriber information) to offer personalized subscriber services and usage options. This richness adds value to Comverse's policy and charging subsystem beyond the capabilities of multivendor solutions, while making it possible to speed up time to market and cut integration effort and expense.
"The Comverse platform also scores high in the important area of providing feedback and control options to subscribers," added McGarvey. "It issues customer notifications around a variety of network events, including when subscribers near or reach quotas, prepaid balance-related notifications, and more. Together with flexible service plans, automatic triggering of promotions and more, these effective tools can increase monetization and user satisfaction."
"Comverse's MIH Policy Management solution was selected by over one dozen tier-1 and other customers in the last year in countries across all regions. Excellent references from operators and leading industry analysts underscore the unique value of Comverse Mobile Internet Hub policy and enforcement services," said Lionel Chmilewsky, Senior Vice President, Head of the Customer Facing Group at Comverse. "With IP reshaping the communication space, Comverse's end-to-end dynamic Policy Management, Policy Enforcement and BSS capabilities provide the broad policy functionality and flexibility needed to combat network congestion, provide a superior mobile Internet experience, and boost monetization from one of today's most promising growth areas."
