READING, England, November 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Acision, the world's leading messaging company, today announced that Telenet, the market leader for Belgium's residential broadband, telephone and TV services, is upgrading its legacy Voicemail platform to Acision's next generation messaging architecture. This platform will allow Telenet to reduce the total cost of ownership of its Voicemail solution, as well as deliver Converged Messaging and Voice Mail applications for Telenet's full MVNO mobile platform.

This new advanced messaging platform is a feature rich solution that allows Telenet the capability to provide market leading services such as Business Voice, Unified Messaging, VoiceSMS, VoiceMMS, Visual Voicemail and Voice to Text all within a single solution architecture. In addition, the Acision solution will easily scale to support Telenet's plans for rapid growth.

Globally, wireless operators are seeking ways to provide subscribers with compelling services to increase their ARPU. Voice was the original killer application in the mobile world and, from a revenue perspective, it still is. According to industry analyst firms, 77 per cent of global wireless revenues come from voice services and that majority status will remain that way for many years to come. With the Acision Advanced Messaging solution, operators can continue to optimize their call completion cycle increasing billable network activity and, in turn, revenue from voice.

Peter Michiels, SVP Network Service Engineering of Telenet commented: For years, Acision's voicemail has serviced the needs of our fixed-line telephony customers. Now, Acision's next generation platform will enable us to provide additional benefits to our ever growing mobile subscriber base. The advanced voice messaging functionality will enable our customers to communicate in new ways and increase our service stickiness.

Tony Morrish, SVP and GM, Europe and Russia of Acision said: The deployment of Acision Voice Messaging Platform at Telenet is not only endorsement of the strength of our voicemail offering but also marks the continuation of an already solid relationship between the two companies. The flexibility of our platform means it can be scaled to meet the needs of service providers of all sizes and can be expanded to meet subscriber growth at minimal cost.

Acision is also providing Telenet with upgrades to the voicemail software and hardware platforms, as well as all implementation, integration, maintenance and support services, making it the sole contractor for the new solution.
