Telenet signs up for Acision’s messaging platform – Belgium

Acision has announced that Telenet is upgrading its legacy voicemail platform to Acision’s next generation messaging architecture. This platform will allow Telenet to reduce the total cost of ownership of its voicemail solution, as well as deliver converged messaging and voicemail applications for Telenet´s full MVNO mobile platform.

Peter Michiels, Senior Vice President of Network and Service Engineering for Telenet commented: “For years, Acision’s voicemail has serviced the needs of our fixed-line telephony customers. Now, Acision’s next generation platform will enable us to provide additional benefits to our ever growing mobile subscriber base. The advanced voice messaging functionality will enable our customers to communicate in new ways and increase our service stickiness.”

Tony Morrish, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Europe and Russia for Acision said: “The deployment of Acision Voice Messaging Platform at Telenet is not only [an] endorsement of the strength of our voicemail offering but also marks the continuation of an already solid relationship between the two companies. The flexibility of our platform means it can be scaled to meet the needs of service providers of all sizes and can be expanded to meet subscriber growth at minimal cost.”

Telenet is Belgium’s largest provider of broadband cable services. It focuses on providing cable television, high-speed Internet and telephony services, mainly to private customers in Flanders and Brussels.
