Guyana Telephone selects Comverse

Guyana Telephone & Telegraph (GT&T), the telecom
service provider in Guyana, has selected Comverse’s converged BSS, Comverse ONE
Billing and Active Customer Management Solution with Comverse Mobile Internet,
and Comverse HUB Voice & Messaging Value-Added Services (VAS), to power a
significant business transformation that will enable it to offer unmatched
service with significant OPEX reduction throughout its converged triple play
(landline, mobile, Internet) portfolio.

“Our fundamental drive is to provide our subscribers
with superior service. The way we achieve this in our fast-changing industry is
by continued improvement to our business,” said Yog Mahadeo, CEO,

“This deployment of solutions from Comverse will
position us to provide a best-in-class communication experience, with agility
to dramatically reduce time to market when launching new services and to grow
all while benefiting from tremendous operating cost reductions,” Mahadeo

GT&T selected Comverse ONE to benefit from a single
product catalog and rating engine, efficiently uniting all subscribers (prepaid
and postpaid) and all lines of business (mobile, wireline, Internet). This
makes possible innovative bundles, cross services, real-time personalized
promotions, rewards and more, plus significant operating cost efficiencies.

Tight integration of Comverse ONE with Comverse Mobile
Internet Hub promotes mobile data traffic optimization and monetization.
Integration with Comverse HUB VAS solutions such as Next-Generation Voicemail,
SMSC, MMS, and USSD (information over signaling channels) can advance
maximization of voice and messaging assets and opportunities.

This comprehensive robust linkage empowers GT&T to
take full advantage of the synergies between these systems to improve
efficiency, significantly reduce total cost of ownership and accelerate time to
market all while improving service and data monetization. The “out of the
box” nature of the linked solutions can dramatically reduce deployment
time and risk.

“Pre-eminent in BSS, mobile Internet and VAS,
Comverse offers advanced technologies that can deliver true business
transformation with tightly linked solutions that ideally provide communication
service providers (CSPs) like GT&T with an edge for success in a
competitive market now and beyond into a future of convergence and
IPfication.” said Lionel Chmilewsky, senior vice president, Head of
Customer Facing Group, Comverse.

“It is yet another validation of the value of our
close bond with our customers that GT&T is extending its long-term
relationship with us by choosing Comverse to take their operations to the next
level,” Chmilewsky added.
