Comverse at IMS World Forum: Prepare for Rich Opportunities With Next-Gen IP Networks

Comverse Chairs Panels Focusing on Revenue Potential of OTT and RCS at Global IMS Conference in Madrid

WAKEFIELD, Mass., April 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Comverse® (Nasdaq:CMVT), the global leader in business enablement through BSS, mobile Internet, value-added and managed services, and a sponsor at IMS World Forum 2012 in Madrid, Spain, will show how communication service providers (CSPs) can leverage next-generation IP networks to thrive in the increasingly connected and converged world.

Drawing from its extensive global experience to share insights and best practices, Comverse will focus on how next-gen IP networks position CSPs to reap significant benefits from key arenas such as Over-the-Top (OTT) services and Rich Communication (RCS) offerings:

Cashing In on the OTT Opportunity

Comverse shows CSPs how to create a win-win situation in the OTT space through innovative pricing and bundled offerings that maximize operator benefits from OTT partnerships and drive new revenue streams. Moderating the panel "Facilitating Interoperability between Operators and OTT Players – Partnerships and Competition for the Future," Comverse explores how CSPs can leverage their strategic assets to strengthen their roles in domains such as content, M2M, and mobile payment, outlining the backend systems that can help CSPs rapidly monetize new business models.

Ushering in the Enriched RCS Experience

As moderator of the panel entitled "Analyzing the Evolution of RCS-e – Developments, Deployments and Beyond," Comverse shares the latest news and timescales for RCS and "joyn" rollouts, commercial adoption, monetization, and customer experience management considerations, while outlining how innovative Rich Communication Offerings can revolutionize the user experience and boost CSP revenues.

Both panels are moderated by Orly Rapaport, Head of Technology Strategy, Comverse, with participants from leading CSPs.

Preparing for the Next-Generation Converged IMS Environment

"Convergence of voice, data and video services into a unified IP infrastructure opens the doors to a wealth of services that can re-invigorate voice and messaging revenues and pave the way to promising new business models," said Gabriel Matsliach, Senior Vice President, Chief Product Officer, Comverse. "To monetize that potential, CSPs must also be prepared with the right back-office BSS capability – one that is designed from the ground up to enable smart monetization of these new business models and provide superb customer management."  

Visitors to the IMS World Forum in Madrid, Spain, April 24-25, 2012 are invited to learn how Comverse paves the way for CSP growth and success in OTT, RCS and beyond.
