Global billing and customer care solutions provider CSG Systems and IBM today announced that Beijing Telecom has successfully deployed the CSG Kenan/BP billing platform and CSG Data Mediation solution to support the voice and data transactions for all of its subscribers.
IBM & CSG completed the first phase of the billing platform implementation in 18 weeks. Beijing Telecom is the fixed line, advanced IP, high speed Internet and Leased Line services provider operating under China Telecom, China's largest telecommunications service provider. CSG's billing and network data mediation solutions will support Beijing Telecom's efforts to enhance customer care, increase profitability and gain greater control over when and how they launch new services or introduce new business models.
IBM and CSG Systems teamed up to implement Kenan/BP and CSG Data Mediation on the IBM AIX platform, IBM's UNIX operating system, that is designed to support e-business and internet applications with enhanced security, workload management, system management and Java software scalability. This compatibility with AIX gives telecommunications service providers worldwide more hardware and operating system choices for running CSG solutions in both outsourced and licensed formats.
CSG recently ported its Kenan/BP and mediation products to the IBM AIX platform and Beijing Telecom is the first customer using the hardware and software combination. IBM is the System Integrator for the billing platform, providing hardware, project management implementation and consulting services, as well as middleware integration with the CRM and payments systems.
