Comverse at Global Messaging World Congress 2012: Expand Messaging Success Into New Markets

Comverse Opens Door to New Messaging Revenue Opportunities in Broadband, IMS, Social Media, Over-the-Top Applications, More

WAKEFIELD, Mass., June 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As a featured session speaker and panel participant at Global Messaging World Congress 2012, Comverse® (Nasdaq:CMVT) will highlight new developments in broadband, IMS, social media and the over-the-top (OTT) space that are creating rich messaging opportunities and new business models for communication service providers (CSPs).

"We will focus at the event on how CSPs are expanding their market horizons and generating new revenues with compelling new consumer experiences," said Oz Ovady, Senior Vice President and Value-Added Services General Manager at Comverse, the global market share leader in value-added services. "CSPs using the Comverse Value Added Service (VAS) 3.0 solution also gain effective tools for securing vital voice and messaging revenues while maximizing cost effectiveness."

Comverse is a featured conference participant in two key events. On June 19 at 14:45 Nir Flatau, Head of Comverse VAS Marketing and Business Development, will speak about "Implementing a Customer Value Business Model for Messaging by Creating Innovative Services Leveraging Operator Assets." On June 20, 11:55 he joins the panel "Successfully Exploiting the Revenue Potential of A2P and P2A SMS for the Business and Enterprise Markets."

"Text and messaging services currently generate significant network revenues, but this is only a fraction of their potential. Comverse helps CSPs leverage messaging capabilities for greater value – while offering protection from cannibalization by emerging alternative messaging players," said Ovady. "I invite event participants to learn how Comverse solutions open up lucrative new avenues, such as Voicemail on Facebook, Safe Messaging while Driving, and additional opportunities and new business models in the OTT space, M2M, and beyond."
