New Zealand Telecom Provider Selects Pactolus SIPware Prepaid Service

By Michelle Robart, TMCnet Editor

Creators of the industry's most widely-deployed SIP applications and service creation/delivery solutions, Pactolus Communications today proudly announced that its SIPware Prepaid Service has been selected and deployed by a reputable telecommunications provider in New Zealand.
Telecom New Zealand International (TNZI), a division of Telecom New Zealand (News - Alert) Limited, will use the SIPware Prepaid Service to add ‘white label’ services to its offering. This will allow retail MSO and IP service providers to brand and offer subscribers affordable, feature-rich services.
TNZI has collaborated with many MSOs to roll-out new international services, which transparently layer prepaid international long distance "bucket-of-minutes" plans that are rated in real time until used up, and are supported by existing VoIP services.
With this convenient and affordable international calling service, MSOs will be able to more successfully compete against free and flat rate VoBB international calling services to prevent subscriber attrition, and integrates easily with pre-existing core VoIP services.
It also lets subscribers add value-priced international dialing capabilities to their current post paid VoIP accounts, and use the service without additional dialing or account authentication processes.
To learn more about how the TNZI and Pactolus joint solution provides cable and service providers a new opportunity to grow revenues, join the companies for a Webinar on Tuesday, December 16, at 2 p.m. EST / 11 a.m. PST.
The companies will explain how their joint solution provides cable and service providers with new revenue opportunities.
"Our goal was to allow MSOs and retail service providers to offer their subscribers complete 'transaction transparent' international calling in region, and allow ongoing flexibility at the retail level for promotional service offers, new features, etc. The Pactolus SIPware Prepaid Calling service and RapidFLEX Service Delivery Platform quickly emerged as the ideal voice services solution," said Mike Grieg, senior director of business development for Telecom New Zealand International.
TNZI quickly added the new service to their existing customized service offerings, using the RapidFLEX Service Creation Environment (SCE), a telco-grade developer environment that allows for fast service customization and integration. SIPware and the RapidFLEX Service Delivery Platform were also selected for their market-proven scale, which guarantees that TNZI's International services would quickly, effectively deploy and could scale to give business and residential subscribers a convenient, feature-rich and affordable array of regional International calling plans.
With the Pactolus SIPware, TNZI-based service providers gain the freedom and agility to define, implement and enhance consumer calling plans, subscriber features, special offers and services that work with their existing services, billing and subscriber management systems, and branding and business models.
"We are very pleased to be chosen by TNZI, a global provider of premium voice services, as its solution for the exciting new line of private label services that extend the service bundles of some of the world's leading retail service providers," stated Pactolus President, CTO and Founder, David Horton.
