Communications Service Providers Worldwide Continue to Select Oracle to Improve Customer Service, Minimize Costs and Optimize Operations

More than 90 Communications Service Providers Selected or Implemented Oracle Communications Software in Oracle’s Most Recent Fiscal Year

Redwood Shores, Calif. – July 28, 2010

News Facts

More than 90 communications service providers worldwide selected, implemented or extended their use of Oracle Communications applications during Oracle’s fiscal year – June 2009 through May 2010. These companies rely on Oracle to help accelerate offer design and rapidly deliver and charge for innovative services while reducing the cost and complexity of infrastructure software and hardware.
For example, WIND Mobile, a subsidiary of Globallive that provides voice, text and data services to Canadians on a next-generation wireless network, worked with Oracle to enhance its service delivery platform and increase its applications offerings. With Oracle Communications Services Gatekeeper, WIND Mobile exposed its network to third-party providers and partners, giving them the opportunity to develop applications without expertise in specific network protocols. This provided WIND Mobile with the scalability to offer hundreds, if not thousands, of applications in a very fast and cost-effective manner while maintaining security and control over which third-party developers use its network. This implementation enabled WIND Mobile to maintain a competitive edge as next-generation mobile content emerges. WIND Mobile and Oracle worked with HP on the six-month implementation.
The following communications and media companies also selected or extended their use of Oracle Communications applications and platform software: Berca Global Access (Indonesia), Bharat Business Channel Limited (India), FairPoint (United States), Grameenphone Ltd. (Bangladesh), LG Telecom (South Korea), Nintendo of America Inc. (United States), PenTeleData (United States), PT Indonesia Comnets Plus (Indonesia), RTI – Reti Televisive Italiane S.p.A. (Italy) and Travelport LP (United States).
