Retail and wholesale billing provisioning provider, Utilibill, has implemented its solution for newly-launched telecommunications provider, Indigo Telecom.
The billing and provisioning platform was integrated into the telco’s hybrid communications network. It combines voice and data mobile satellite, a dedicated virtual private network (VPN) and point-of-presence (PoP) for IP data through the Thuraya mobile network.
Launched last month, Indigo claimed it can provide 100 per cent coverage across Australia.
Utilibill managing director, Morgan Duncan, said the partnership would broaden opportunities for both companies and predicts it would sign up tens of thousands of customers to its services in the first year of operation. “Now that we have integrated our system into this multi-billion dollar hybrid communications network we look forward to introducing Indigo Telecom’s products and services to our wholesale service providers,” Duncan said in a statement. “This is an exciting time for all Australians as this partnership provides a long-needed and competitively priced mobile communications service for businesses and industry operating in regional and remote areas.”
Utilibill anticipates Indigo will help the billing provider reach one million new customers in Australia.
Indigo Telecom CEO, David Ruddiman said in a statement that Utilibill will aid with the telco’s smooth international expansion. Utilibill began operations in 2007 and services more than 140 telco providers.
