July 09, 2012

 


PortaOne (News - Alert), a provider of software solutions such as VoIP switches and billing for the telecommunications industry, has just revealed that Datora Telecom Group (Datora), a Brazil-based provider of VoIP solutions, has selected PortaBilling Oracularius, a carrier-grade converged VoIP billing and customer management platform, in order to better manage its opportunities in Latin America and global markets.

Datora provides VoIP services throughout Latin America and other parts of the globe. The company's mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) and mobile-to-mobile (M2M) services allow its customers to provide a more customized experience to end users with product and mobility convergence and deepen brand loyalty.

"We are very pleased to work with Datora Telecom and provide them with our scalable PortaBilling Oracularius solution," said Roman Khalenkov, sales and marketing director for PortaOne, in a statement. "Datora is capturing significant market share in one of the world's fastest growing telecom environments, and we are there to make sure their customers receive the sophisticated VoIP functions they need to operate profitably."

Datora first partnered with PortaOne in 2007 when it selected an early version of PortaSwitch, a flagship VoIP infrastructure system featuring a real-time billing system, class 4/5 SIP softswitch, and media applications that deliver converged VoIP billing and provisioning, SIP call control, unified messaging, IP Centrex and hosted IP PBX (News - Alert), callback management, IVRs, conferencing and more.

Following this implementation, the company saw significant growth, and over time it expanded the PortaSwitch platform to manage its increased capacity needs and provide more redundancies.

The company recently upgraded to PortaOne's PortaBilling Oracularius that provides Datora with a reliable system within an Oracle (News - Alert) Real Application Cluster environment. The system provides multiple billing capabilities including usage event or periodic-based billing.

PortaBilling Oracularius is a real-time billing engine that works in tandem with Datora's other telecommunication network equipment to enable actions such as flexible call routing, profit-guarantee routing, as well as other plans designed to ensure efficiency and maximize return-on-investment.

Wilson Otero, CEO of Datora Telecom stated, “The PortaOne systems are vital to our continued growth as they allow our customers to manage their own accounts and it significantly improves the reliability and quality of our services."

According to Otero, PortaBilling Oracularius allows his company to handle multiple business needs on just one platform. "We upgraded to this system in order to manage our considerable growth without any interruption to our services. It provides instant scalability, and allows us to add capacity as needed to our Oracle RAC cluster or other components."
