Elitecore Offers WiMax Billing
"Even as WiMAX has extended beyond backhaul towards the access level, it has emerged as a parallel service to cellular technologies with its ability to cater to mobile VoIP," says Hemal Patel, Managing Director and CEO, Elitecore Technologies, vendor of Crestel Convergent Billing. "To meet the challenge of providing matching service levels, WiMAX providers require a complete billing, service delivery and customer management solution."
WiMAX deployments are gaining speed, giving credence to predictions that the WiMAX equipment market is expected to grow from 42 million USD in 2006 to 3 Billion USD in 2010, according to In-Stat research.
"Although focus has been on cost-effective wireless connectivity in rural and low-infrastructure areas driven by green-field operators, WiMAX has found ready acceptance with Tier-1 operators in densely populated urban areas for the convenience of anywhere VoIP and high-speed data, content offerings, requiring different levels of service delivery," Patel adds.
