The company was selected for this honour based on its development and applications of Comptel Bandwidth Management.

In its 13th year, the World BSS Awards helps raise awareness of the significance of billing and information management systems and processes to the communications industry by identifying key trends and rewarding BSS best practices.

"The judging panel was very impressed with Comptel Bandwidth Management, which represents a new generation of highly commercial BSS/OSS solutions now coming onto the market," said Ms. Cottam. "What's exciting about this particular solution is that it combines a better customer experience -- ensuring the delivery of the QoS needed and paid for by an individual customer -- with a better commercial experience for cellcos deriving from lower operational costs, fewer customer complaints and the ability to support more innovative business models. The result is a win-win situation, which delivers a better telesperience for all."
