The solution provides the data collection elements from ACE*COMM's Convergent Mediation suite, and will be used for the capture, processing, and storing of transaction records critical to the process of billing customers and managing traffic on the network. Kunming Tel is the telecommunications service provider for Kunming City – the capital city and largest metropolitan area in Yunnan Province, with a population in excess of three million people.
