Comverse, the world's leading supplier of software and systems enabling network-based multimedia enhanced communication and billing services, today announced that Connexion Technologies, a leading US fiber-optic amenity company, has launched Comverse's MyCall Converged Communications to help telecommunications companies serve residential customers with high-quality IP-based voice services over Connexion's Fiber to the Home (FTTH) networks.
Connexion wanted to ensure that its Fiber to the Home customers have access to state-of-the-art crystal-clear digital voice services to complement other fiber broadband services such as high-speed Internet, television and home security monitoring. Connexion made the investment in the MyCall system for service providers to offer advanced voice services to Connexion’s fiber to home residential, business and hospitality customers.
“Sophisticated homebuyers across the US are demanding fiber-optic technology today,” said Glen Lang, CEO of Connexion Technologies. “Our customers expect state-of-the-art telephone service with rich features, upgrades and a variety of advanced devices. We needed to find service providers capable of providing such services over our fiber to the home broadband networks who could work within a short timeframe to keep up with our growth. Together with our service provider partners and Comverse, we succeeded in delivering a rich and reliable voice service that is easy to setup and provision, and works perfectly with other services on our broadband fiber networks.”
Connexion Technologies provides a “one-stop-shop” for real estate developers and communities by designing, installing and operating FTTH networks. Given fiber's vast bandwidth, a wide range of services can be delivered over Connexion Technologies’ leading-edge fiber-optic networks. By adding Comverse’s MyCall Converged Communications, Connexion now has a flexible multimedia communications platform that can be used by service providers to seamlessly integrate with its high-speed Internet, TV and security services for a richer user experience in different residential, hospitality and business applications.
“Connexion Technologies leads the trend in the U.S. to bring fiber to the home,” commented Ramesh Barasia, President of Comverse Americas. “They offer a network that can support truly integrated converged communication services customized to consumer lifestyles. This project exemplifies the rich and personalized experience that Comverse’s total communications solutions contribute to our evolving market.”
MyCall Converged Communications is a pre-integrated solution that is based on a future-proof, IMS architecture and operates on Comverse’s highly scalable Class 5 Application Server. It increases revenues through fixed-mobile convergent telephony and messaging services across fixed phones, mobile phones and PCs. Two applications of MyCall Converged Communications, the PC Communicator and the Mobile Communicator, allow subscribers to access all communication and messaging services (telephony, voicemail, SMS, MMS, IM and presence) via PC or mobile phone using a single ID/telephone number.
