HELSINKI, January 15 /PRNewswire/ --

- Comptel Partners With Comware to Deliver a Complete Solution to Charge for WiMAX Services

Comptel Corporation (OMX Helsinki: CTL1V), the leading vendor of dynamic Operations Support System (OSS) software, announced today that an unnamed Taiwanese WiMAX operator has selected Comptel Convergent Mediation Solution. Comptel is partnering with Taiwan-based billing vendor Comware to deliver the complete charging solution for the postpaid and prepaid services the operator will be offering over their WiMAX network.

The operator is one of 6 operators to have been granted a WiMAX license in Taiwan, and hopes to be the first to launch commercial services in early 2009. Competition for broadband services is already quite intense in Taiwan, with some mobile vendors having launched mobile broadband offerings. In order to gain a foothold, the WiMAX operator needs an infrastructure that allows a fast time-to-market

The WiMAX operator chose Comptel, in partnership with Comware, to deliver the solution they needed. Comptel was able to demonstrate that Comptel Convergent Mediation Solution would be able to offer the flexibility and reliability required to support the WiMAX operator's on-going business plans.

Comptel Convergent Mediation Solution will be used to collect service usage information from the WiMAX network, and to forward it to the Comware billing solution.

Mr. Mika Korpinen, APAC Vice President for Comptel concludes: Comptel is once again demonstrating the importance of providing reliable delivery and enabling time-to-market. This combined with our unrivalled experience in telecoms and excellent partners such as Comware is what makes Comptel such a success across the world.

Comptel will be exhibiting at GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, 16 February - 19 February 2009 (stand # 2E58).
