JISP Announces OSS
/ BSS to Build Profitable WiMAX
(WiMAX World Conference and Expo, Boston, USA. 26 September 2005)
JISP Convergent Billing announces the adaptation of its convergent
billing framework to carry WiMAX from pure backhauling and remote
connectivity towards the retail end. In its drive to be part of this
emerging technology, JISP is working closely with leading WiMAX
vendors. It has made a heavy investment with focus on building retail
and carrier-grade capabilities into WiMAX, factors that are critical
to profitable deployment.
JISP’s portfolio includes pre-WiMAX deployments in Africa where the
technology finds ready acceptance due to lack of infrastructure. In
addition, it supports current WiMAX deployments in India.
With industry analysts forecasting USD 3 to 5 billion WiMAX market by
2009, the technology is set to penetrate the service provider market.
“JISP adds another much needed dimension to WiMAX which currently
focuses on interoperability issues,” says Hemal Patel, CEO and
Managing Director, Elitecore Technologies, vendor of JISP Convergent
Billing. “By incorporating JISP, WiMAX can convert its technology
strengths of cost-effective and high speed connectivity to business
and market benefits of high margins and customer satisfaction.”
Through pre-provisioning and self-provisioning, spectrum optimization,
AAA and enhanced offerings, JISP enables service providers to move
away from flat billing, limited services and unreliable service levels
which lead to suboptimal spectrum utilization, revenue leakage, low
margins and customer dissatisfaction.
JISP enables profitable WiMAX deployments while ensuring high levels
of customer satisfaction through delivery of value-added data, voice,
video services, simple authentication, multiple client device support,
instant service activation, easy roaming and payment facilities across
“JISP delivers scale with margins to WiMAX through its 4C focus –
customers, competition, content and channel partners – enhancing WiMAX
competitive strengths,” says Nikhil Jain, President and COO, Elitecore
Technologies. “In the process, we extract the full potential of WiMAX
and ensure rapid absorption of the technology into mainstream service
JISP’s single, comprehensive platform lowers operating costs and
