WAKEFIELD, Mass., July 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Comverse (Nasdaq:CNSI), a global leader in telecom business enablement, today announced that a major APAC communication service provider (CSP) has selected Comverse to power its expansion to multi-play services – including the addition of a new major nationwide broadband line of business.

Comverse Policy Manager: Streamlined Software-Based Deployment Delivers Strength Plus Savings

To launch its new broadband Internet service, the CSP selected Comverse Policy Manager (PCRF), a leading solution deployed by CSPs worldwide. Engineered to provide a superior customer experience, Comverse Policy Manager meets the CSP's demanding requirements for advanced capabilities: dynamic quote updates, quality of service modifications, real-time alerts and notifications and more. The CSP opted for the software-based solution mode, streamlining installation and deployment of the PCRF system in its data center and benefiting from significant cost advantages.

Fully interoperable with the industry's leading policy enforcement solutions, Comverse Policy Manager will integrate with a leading third-party Policy Enforcement Manager to handle the expected explosion of data traffic, deliver insight into subscriber behavior and to increase profitability.

Tight Integration with Comverse Kenan FX

Tightly integrated with the Comverse Policy Manager, the existing Kenan BSS solution will be the backbone of the CSP's multi-play success, providing single-source convenience for customer care and technical support. The customer experience will be energized by a single user-friendly bill for all products and robust self-service providing instant access to usage information and personalized control of service options.
