HELSINKI -- Comptel Corporation, the leading vendor of dynamic Operations Support System (OSS) software, announced today that Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) has selected Comptel to supply mediation, provisioning and activation solutions. These solutions will replace existing 3rd party solutions, providing the much needed flexibility and reliability to meet the growing popularity of GSM services in the Bahamas.

BTC is the incumbent operator in the Bahamas. Like many operators in the region, BTC serves not only the local population, but also the strong financial and tourism industries which bring many visitors to the islands. Until a few years ago BTC offered services predominantly on TDMA and CDMA, network standards that are particularly wide-spread in North-America. In recent years though, the global GSM standard has gained popularity in the Bahamas, and now most users are on the GSM network.

Comptel has been used by BTC since 2002 for service mediation, provisioning and activation for TDMA and CDMA, but until now, other 3rd party solutions were deployed to handle the GSM services. As the number of GSM users grew services became more complex requiring BTC to search for a more robust and reliable solution. Comptel has now been selected to replace those solutions.

Ms. Nickola Dawkins, CIO at BTC Bahamas, says: “At BTC we have a very demanding customer base, who expect the highest standard of service on an international scale. BTC must be able to deliver services fast and reliably, so we expect an excellent time-to-market and reliable delivery from our suppliers. Having worked with Comptel since 2002, we knew that their Comptel Dynamic OSS solutions would be able to meet our strict criteria.”
