Rodopi Announces Automated Provisioning and Billing for MetaSwitch

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 17, 2006 – Spring 2006 VON: Rodopi Software Inc., an industry leader in new generation operations systems and software (NGOSS) and back office automation software for IP service providers, today announced automated provisioning for the MetaSwitch Class 4/5 Softswitch to complement the billing integration announced last year.

The support announced today for MetaSwitch pre-integrates Rodopi’s web-based billing and provisioning technology into MetaSwitch’s multimedia enhanced telephony architecture (META). Service provider customers of both companies now gain access to a turn-key platform that helps them reduce the time, cost and effort required to deploy voice, video and data solutions; provision thousands of customers for different services; and bill each customer for the voice, video and data solutions they subscribe to.

Integration for these industry leading offerings is available as part of Rodopi OSS version 5.5, which was also announced at Spring 2006 VON. For additional details on version 5.5, please see release entitled “New Rodopi OSS Enables Service Providers to Implement Turn-key Billing, Provisioning, and Customer Care for VoIP and Other IP Services".
