WAKEFIELD, Mass., May 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At Digital Services World Congress 2014 in London June 2-4, Comverse (Nasdaq:CNSI), a global leader in telecom business enablement, will show CSPs how to leverage their key assets to become true digital lifestyle players – and position themselves to move to digital services and business models that transcend traditional telecom boundaries.

In the plenary session, Shai Perach, Director of Product Marketing and Strategy, Digital Services, Comverse, will deliver a key address entitled Enabling CSPs to Become Digital Lifestyle Players. With user expectations of communication services shaped by Internet-based services, Perach will show how CSPs can leverage their unique assets to maintain relevance in the digital era by a) evolving their bread-and-butter telecom services to a digital experience, b) delivering new rich communication (RCS) services, and c) laying the groundwork to seize future digital services opportunities in communications, commerce, information, entertainment and additional fields.

Positioning CSPs for Success in the Digital World

Comverse will demonstrate the Evolved Communication Suite (ECS), engineered to enable CSPs to evolve existing services to the digital world, deliver full RCS services to a broad user base via downloadable apps or GSMA-accredited devices, and leverage insight into subscribers gained from social networks for more effective marketing and introduction of new services.

"The paradigm of traditional telecom services available only on mobile phones, only via the MNO network and only utilizing a dial pad user interface is not sustainable in the digital era," said Aashu Virmani, VP Product Management and Marketing at Comverse. "The digital capabilities that users seek do not exist in today's telecom services experience. Comverse ECS brings the rich digital lifestyle experience to life in existing and new services alike, with a rich client experience consistent over the multitude of Internet-connected devices."

Innovation Award Finalist

Comverse's Evolved Communication Suite (ECS) has been honored as a finalist for the Pipeline Editor's Choice Innovation Award in recognition of the high level of innovation demonstrated by the solution. The award recognizes pioneering and visionary products in areas of communication and entertainment (COMET).
