Montreal, Quebec, Canada (PRWEB) August 15, 2007
TelcoBridges Inc. announced today that SGX-listed Unified Communications Holdings Limited of Singapore has used TelcoBridges' innovative telecom platform to enable a portfolio of value-added service (VAS) solutions supplying Personalized Ringback Tones (PRBT) and Background Music (BGM). The solutions are offered and deployed in Asia Pacific to meet the increasing demand for innovative, youth-oriented VAS products that help differentiate service providers and attract more subscribers.
BGM allows callers to enhance their telephone calling experience by injecting their favourite tune into the conversation to create the perfect mood. Background music VAS products drive up usage rates and boost revenue for the operator through subscription and content download fees.
PRBTs provide subscribers with the flexibility to substitute the common ringback tone with music, songs or personal recordings which can be heard by selected callers. Unified Communications' PRBT solution allows operators to increase average revenue per user (ARPU) by fulfilling subscribers' desires for more personalization and entertainment.
Unified Communications recognized that the carrier-class and highly-scalable telecom platform offered by TelcoBridges could take its VAS solutions portfolio to the next level, supporting higher channel densities and effortless system expansions.
"We required a platform we could build on which provides the flexibility to support a variety of leading-edge applications and the scalability to create larger systems," said Mr. Wong Tze Leng, CEO, Unified Communications. "It is crucial for our clients to rapidly introduce new and innovative VAS services to maintain their competitive edge while being able to scale their systems easily to keep pace with ever increasing demand. We found TelcoBridges' products offer exactly what we need to fulfill our needs and those of our customers".
"Unified Communications has created powerful VAS solutions for carriers. It includes easy-to-use interfaces such as IVR, web, WAP, etc. which allows subscribers to download their favourite musical content," said Gaetan Campeau, President, Founder and EVP Sales, TelcoBridges.
