NEWCON Deploys "Intercarrier- & Wholesale- Billing Solution" for Swisscom

VIENNA, January 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

NEWCON, a global leading provider of Telco core components in the area of OSS and BSS, today announced that the company has deployed its "Intercarrier- & Wholesale Billing Solution" - as part of NEWCONs' powerful "OSS/BSS Integration Layer™" software suite - for Switzerland's leading telecoms provider, Swisscom.

Swisscom with 5.7 million mobile and around 1.9 million broadband connections, has searched for a next generation, cost efficient and flexible Intercarrier - & Wholesale- Billing Solution in order to improve its competitive position on the national- and international- Telecom market.

NEWCON Ltd. deployed its "Intercarrier- & Wholesale- Billing Solution" to enhance the flexibility of Swisscom Wholesale department and to guarantee sustainable cost optimizations over this complex and business critical value chain plus heavy reductions in terms of time to market. Swisscom is using NEWCONs' product, in particular the advanced rating and revenue assurance capabilities along with the highly flexible product configuration features and the mighty online part. Swisscom selected NEWCON to replace a "Wholesale Billing" solution from another third party product vendor. The Next Generation Intercarrier- & Wholesale- Billing Solution has been implemented with a target to reduce the total cost of ownership for billing service at least by 30%.

Swisscom has engaged KPMG as auditor to guarantee high quality and avoiding any kind of revenue loss during migration phase. KPMG confirmed during a "parallel run phase" high level of correctness even on the first bill cycle run.

As a remarkable result out of that complex deployment Swisscom's Wholesale Manager, Mr Bruno Müller, confirms the following key-strengths: "The way the teams have worked together was impressive. After the test period defined by the auditor - in fact the comparison of the results Billing old versus Billing new - the NEWCON system took over the production lead without any problems. Based on our experience with other migration projects an outstanding performance has been shown by NEWCON. After that phase our over-20-years-old grown billing solution has been decommissioned. We are very proud about our Swisscom team and NEWCONs' delivery team."

"All in the beginning of the migration-phase defined Project Targets have been reached. The great cooperation with Swisscom's highly engaged project team was essential to meet all the criteria's defined in terms of time and budget," said Gerald Haidl, CEO NEWCON.  


NEWCON has a clearly defined feature on the national and international market of product vendors, service integrators and management consultants: NEWCON covers the complete value added chain of its business customers, which are mainly from the enterprise customers sector. NEWCON offers a wide range of services, starting with Top Level Management Consulting (Strategic Consulting) and going to R&D, System Integration and Outsourcing of whole applications.
