Aepona Causeway Service Enablement for Pre-Paid Announced at 3G World Congress, Hong Kong, 14-18 November, 2005

Aepona, the developer of enabling software for telecoms service delivery, has announced a further key development of its market leading Causeway Service Enablement Suite – currently in use by leading mobile operators in Asia, Europe and the US.

The Causeway Call Supervision application allows operators to roll out

new services across circuit-switched and SIP resources more rapidly and cost effectively, extending such services into the pre-pay world. Easy pre-paid support for new services means that operators can now consider all customers – pre and post paid – as one and the same as far as services roll-out is concerned.

According to Michael Curran, Head of Global Sales for Aepona, “this makes our Causeway service enablement suite utterly compelling. Not only can we make the lives of operators immensely easier by allowing them to develop applications on our platform, leaving us to take care of integration with network resources – now we can hook the entire customer base in to those new Causeway enabled services as well as IN services.”

“Real-time network services can be offered to pre-paid customers in exactly the same way as they are offered to post-pay. This was a major difficulty in the past, but not any more. With Causeway all those call control functions that can be rolled out over our standards-compliant gateway can now integrate with pre-paid billing systems via Radius and Diameter. An on-board charging service supports content and event based charging – a critical component for new data services. Moreover, we can support interworking with intelligent network environments as well as OSA/parlay based services. “

“In short”, he continued, “regardless of how many pre-paid customers operators have (and pre-pay bases tend to be high here in Asia as well as in other markets like Eastern Europe) they can now get them hooked up to the latest services in real time, thereby increasing average revenue across the whole user base.”

Michael Curran will be available to answer questions about the pre-paid extensions to Aepona Causeway during the 3G World Congress in Hong Kong, 14-18 November, 2005. Booth number 1954.
