Bahamas Telecommunications Deploys Comverse ONE

Bahamas Telecommunications Company Ltd., a subsidiary of Cable & Wireless Communications PLC, has deployed Comverse ONE(R) Real-Time Billing & Active Customer Management Solution.

BTC, a provider of broadband services and fixed-line, has deployed Comverse BSS, VAS and mobile Internet solutions for new service enablement and monetization from Comverse. It currently has approximately 19,000 broadband customers, 388,000 mobile customers and 123,000 fixed line customers.

Comverse ONE will help Bahamas Telecommunications in business transformation. It will optimize its new 4G infrastructure. With the help of Comverse ONE, Bahamas Telecommunication aims at maintaining its leadership position when the markets in the Bahamas get deregulated by seamlessly moving toward convergence which is the strategic vision of C&W group.

"We chose Comverse for this major business transformation because of the breadth of their portfolio and the proven performance of their products and service throughout the longstanding partnership between Comverse and the LIME group within Cable & Wireless," said Marlon Johnson, senior vice-president for Marketing & Communications at BTC.

"Highly attuned to our vision to provide an exceptional user experience, Comverse's solutions make the most of our new 4G network's powerful capabilities -- differentiating our service, and giving us a competitive edge as we prepare to adopt new connected business models."

BTC now launches promotions in a single day -- just a small fraction of the time it used to take them. The synergies, agility and operational efficiencies that BTC gains by adopting BSS, mobile Internet and value-added services from Comverse's comprehensive portfolio unleash the value of their network, giving BTC a significant competitive edge."
