BANGALORE, INDIA: Subex Limited, a provider of operations and business support systems (OSS/BSS) for communications service providers, and IBM India have entered into a multi-million dollar deal with Idea Cellular, a GSM mobile services operator.


Subex and IBM will implement Subex’s ROC for interconnect billing for the telecom major.

The solution will be implemented through IBM, who is Idea’s Strategic IT Outsourcing Partner. IBM has so far been supporting Idea’s interconnect billing and reconciliation needs through a bureau service.

These requirements are now planned to be catered through Subex’s solution deployed in-house.


Sudeesh Yezhuvath, COO, Subex Ltd said, “Our ROC Interconnect billing will enable Idea to focus on newer sources of revenue by bettering their new services, while streamlining complex revenue sharing agreements. Along with this, Idea will now be able to easily detect any billing errors and correct them proactively.”

With the implementation of these solutions, Subex will play an important role in enabling the customer to have improved control over their operations. During the entire duration of the contract, Subex will provide complete product support including updates and version upgrades.
