June 02, 2014 --
WAKEFIELD, Mass., June 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Comverse (Nasdaq:CNSI), a global leader in telecom business enablement, announced today that it holds a dominant market share in North America for VoLTE-based (Voice over LTE) services. Several leading communication service providers (CSPs) have made Comverse their sole provider for IP messaging and voicemail services – paving a clear path for richer customer experiences throughout the region.
Comverse helps CSPs leverage IP and VoLTE to exploit the capabilities of their 4G networks to deliver rich new voice, video and messaging services while realizing significant cost efficiencies.
"Comverse has established its IP leadership in North America – as in other advanced markets worldwide – in evolving CSPs from circuit-switched voice and messaging services to IP/LTE-based solutions," said Aashu Virmani, VP Product Management and Product Marketing at Comverse. "Comverse digital services help CSPs keep their customers from moving to alternative over-the-top offerings by unlocking new IP capabilities – for example, transforming voicemail to a converged multi-device, multi-account service with advanced features such as videomail, a broad selection of visual inboxes and interfaces, immediate notification/ receipt of new messages with SMS, email, voice-to-text options, integration with IPTV and beyond."
With LTE rollouts driving the global shift to digital communication, cloud-based Evolved Communication Suite (ECS) is engineered to deliver richer customer experiences attuned to the essence and energy of today's digital environment. The Comverse ECS solution enables CSPs to leverage their differentiating assets to become key digital lifestyle players, building a critical mass of users for CSP IP-based communication services and rich RCS services (group chat, file transfer, video share, presence and geo-location information) – while boosting marketing insight and effectiveness with social network information.
Comverse leadership in IP/ VoLTE-based implementations draws from its rich portfolio of proven BSS, policy/ PCRF, digital voice and messaging solutions, complemented by managed services – delivering what's next for more than 450 CSPs in today's challenging and evolving multi-device market.
