LONDON, UK: Intec, provider of operations support systems (OSS) for fixed, wireless, and IP/Next Generation networks, has announced that it has signed a multi-million dollar deal in Lebanon with government owned GSM provider Alfa.

According to the agreement Intec will supply Alfa with its integrated customer care, charging and billing solution, a scalable business support system to Alfa.

Alfa has selected the Intec Mobile Business Solution, including its Singl.eView Customer Management, Billing and Financial Assurances modules which, combined, will help Alfa manage the customer care and billing of its latest value-added, next generation services as well as offer integrated charging, invoicing and reporting across its network, Intec said in a statement.

The contract is the biggest that Intec has ever signed in the Middle East and is the result of a collaborative effort with its strategic regional partner Midware Data Systems (MDS), a provider of IT infrastructure solutions and services, an Intec statement added.

Ineke Botter, managing director and CEO of Alfa, said, “The installation of Intec Mobile Business Solution and its core modules will give us the billing flexibility and scalability to roll out the most advanced service offerings that we are planning to launch in the course of 2008. Upgrading our billing system is a sound investment for our future business growth and we look forward to using Intec’s technology to help us deliver a continuous high quality of service.”

Alfa is one of two GSM providers offering wireless services in Lebanon and is managed by Fal Dete Telecommunications, which is a joint venture between Detecon International, a wholly owned subsidiary of T-Systems (Deutsche Telekom) and Fal Holdings Arabia, a Saudi-based Company

“Despite the economic and political challenges that Lebanon recently faced, the country is on track with rebuilding and modernising its mobile infrastructure and reclaiming its status as the commercial and financial centre of the Middle East,” explains Christian Ciupek, Intec’s regional business development director for Africa and the Middle East.
