Movilnet Expands Comverse InSight™ Open Services Environment to Accommodate Rapid Growth in Venezuela
InSight Replaces Legacy Competitor Installation
Comverse, the world's leading supplier of software and systems enabling network-based multimedia enhanced communication and billing services, today announced that Telecomunicaciones Movilnet CA, a leading mobile operator in Venezuela with more than eight million subscribers, is expanding its InSight Open Services Environment to handle the rapidly increasing demand for voice and value-added services. The expansion complements existing InSight capabilities and completes the phasing out of a legacy competitor installation with InSight’s advanced next-generation platform for voice and data value-added services.
The high-performance, cost-efficient, integrated system will supply and support existing and planned services with an enhanced user experience with consistent access to all types of messages, personal files and applications, and is designed to encourage service discovery and usage.
“Our subscriber base is growing quickly, partly due to the reputation we have earned for consumer orientation,” said Ernesto Ramos Henningsen, Operations and Systems Vice President at Movilnet. “Our most pressing need for the expansion at this moment is to accommodate the booming demand for voicemail. Looking ahead, this InSight expansion enables us to meet current and projected needs and lays a solid foundation for the extensive variety of advanced services that are part of our future plans. We are expanding our InSight base for its feature richness, user experience, visionary road map and excellent price/benefit ratio.”
InSight is an IP-based Open Services Environment for the launch and delivery of multimedia messaging and content value-added services. InSight’s core components and shared critical enablers create substantial operational efficiencies and accelerate deployment of new services with a consistent multimodal interface. InSight’s rich portfolio of advanced call completion and messaging services optimizes the user experience and leverages the capabilities of handsets and networks.
“An unmistakable benchmark of InSight success is the rapid takeup of the Open Services Environment by well more than 100 operators,” said Ramesh Barasia, President of Comverse Americas. “Further strong confirmation of the popularity of InSight-powered services is that many operators, like Movilnet, are expanding their systems as usage ramps up, and are making plans for future introduction of advanced services. InSight is a common denominator for success of leading circuit-switched, packet-switched, IP, hybrid, and IMS operators in South America and all around the world.”
