Veraz Networks and Comarch Announce Wholesale Revenue Assurance Solution Using Pre-Paid Billing

Press release from: Comarch S.A.

Solution enables wholesale carriers to cost-effectively offer advanced carrier pre-paid billing solutions across heterogeneous networks

SAN JOSE, CA & KRAKOW, POLAND – May 27, 2009 – Veraz Networks, Inc., (NASDAQ: VRAZ), the leading provider of Multimedia Generation Network application, control, and bandwidth optimization products, and Comarch, the leading BSS/OSS vendor and systems integrator, today announced a joint offering for wholesale carriers that combines Comarch’s real-time pre-paid, service creation and credit control application with Veraz’s ControlSwitch™ interconnect VoIP platform.

Wholesale service providers are increasingly looking to offer pre-paid billing as an option for their carrier customers. Carrier pre-paid services require real-time billing, credit control and revenue assurance capabilities that need to be tightly integrated into both the carrier’s OSS/BSS systems and their voice switching infrastructure.

In many cases, wholesale operators’ voice networks are a multi-vendor mixture of legacy TDM switches, next generation softswitches and increasingly IMS SIP components. The real-time integration of all of these diverse elements into a unified pre-paid billing architecture is often technically challenging and cost-prohibitive.

The Veraz-Comarch solution addresses the cost of integration by leveraging the ControlSwitch’s ability to interwork across legacy, first generation softswitches and IMS-based SIP control elements, providing a unified interface into the carrier pre-paid system and overall OSS/BSS environment. This dramatically lowers the cost of integrating a diverse network switching environment into the pre-paid system.

Comarch’s BSS/OSS portfolio and expertise, which includes convergent billing systems for retail and wholesale carriers, telecom CRM systems and network and service assurance applications provides carriers with an industry leading and complete solution covering billing, rating, charging and real-time service creation and control.

“By working together, Comarch and Veraz are lowering the cost and complexity of implementing pre-paid wholesale services,” stated Piotr Piątosa, VP Telecommunications, Member of the Board, Comarch SA. “Our joint solution provides a powerful platform that can easily accommodate future service capabilities without requiring significant changes to the network.”

“The Veraz-Comarch solution delivers an industry-leading carrier prepaid solution, solving both the interworking complexity for carriers across multiple switching platforms, as well as the real-time reporting and credit control required in this environment,” said Dawn Hogh, Vice President of Marketing for Veraz Networks. “Veraz is pleased to be working with Comarch to deliver these types of capabilities to wholesale carriers globally.”
