Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) March 12, 2008
TelcoBridges™ Inc., the preferred hardware and software supplier for telecom solution developers, today announced that solution provider Kingdom Telecom of Beijing is using TelcoBridges' telecom platform for Henan Mobile to support the largest Personalized RingBack Tone (PRBT) system, supporting more than 4,000 E1s in China.
Henan Mobile, a subsidiary of China Mobile, provides the "Color Ring" service to its customers, which replaces normal ring tones with a variety of personalized voice recordings, songs, or sound effects that are selected by the called party. PRBTs, which require a subscriber account, are one of the few mobile applications not constrained by network technologies or handset dependencies. As such, every mobile subscriber is a potential customer, so the underlying technology used to support Henan Mobile's PRBT system must be extremely scalable and cost-effective.
Henan Mobile is using TelcoBridges' highly-scalable telecom platform along with Kingdom Telecom's application software to address the increasing customer demand for Personalized RingBack Tone (PRBT) services.
"We've been working with Henan Mobile for almost three years, and over that time, we've increased the capacity of the system several times, in a live fashion, without disrupting service, or affecting Henan Mobile's revenue streams," said Zhang Guang Bin, Vice President, Kingdom Telecom. "Through the combination of TelcoBridges' enabling technologies and our software, we've been able to provide the largest operator in the world with 100% PRBT system capacity for all their subscribers in Henan province."
Next to SMS, RingBack Tones is the second most profitable value added service that carriers offer to customers. Due to the seamless nature of Henan Mobile's expansion, this project is expected to provide a return on investment within just a few months.
"Deployments like Henan Mobile illustrate the superiority of our enabling technologies for PRBTs and other mobile applications that carriers need to build and deploy high margin services for their customers - and scale these systems when necessary to keep up with surging demand," said Gaetan Campeau, President of TelcoBridges. "In China alone, mobile services are expected to reach more than 740 million subscribers within the next two years. The inherent scalability of our architecture enables customers like China Mobile to add TelcoBridges hardware and software in a seamless fashion, when they need it to keep up with growing demand."
TelcoBridges is clearly defining the future of communications technologies. By supplying the industry's best telecom platform, TelcoBridges is helping telecom solution developers of VoIP and TDM solutions realize their bright ideas. TelcoBridges' customers develop and deploy carrier-grade telecom solutions for some of the world's largest operators in more than 35 countries.
