REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. -- Oracle today announced that Telecom Argentina, a leading communications service provider in Argentina, selected Oracle® Communications Billing and Revenue Management to support its launch of next-generation services including IPTV, VoIP and Wi-Fi. Telecom Argentina chose Oracle’s application for its flexibility, which enabled the company to offer diverse pre- and post-paid billing plans and customized solution bundles to meet diverse customer needs and to help expand beyond its 50 percent market share in the country.

In addition to flexibility, Telecom Argentina also selected Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management for its scalability. Telecom Argentina expects significant growth, particularly in new services and in ADSL broadband Internet. The Oracle solution will help Telecom Argentina efficiently deliver and bill for services, as its subscriber-base continues to grow.

“Telecom Argentina is committed to offering next-generation products and high quality service. We needed our IT applications to support that mission,” said Guillermo Desimoni, Director of Information, Telecom Argentina. “We considered other vendors, but chose Oracle because it had the best solution to meet our immediate and future needs.”

Telecom Argentina expects the Oracle implementation to help it become a leader in offering customer-centric next-generation services and compete more effectively in a rapidly changing competitive landscape. The company plans to launch pre-paid Wi-Fi in April 2007 and ADSL services in October 2007. Telecom Argentina plans to use the application to boost average revenue per user (ARPU) by quickly launching new services and leveraging marketing functionality to improve cross-selling initiatives.

“Oracle Communications brings together a unique portfolio of proven software that enables service providers to leverage next-generation convergent services,” said Bhaskar Gorti, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Communications. “We look forward to helping Telecom Argentina maintain its position as a leading communications provider as it pursues aggressive next-generation service rollouts.”
