Also choosing Comverse's RTBS software, but for a different reason, is Corporacion Digitel, C.A., Venezuela's only GSM mobile operator. Digitel will utilize Comverse billing solutions for its prepaid requirements and to manage all of its subscribers, regardless of payment type. To cap off its busy day, Comverse announced that Pathway Communications, a leading Canadian provider of Internet solutions, has launched voice services using the Comverse MyCall Converged Communications and Converged IPCentrex Solutions.
