the Comverse Voice HUB to replace a competitor’s system to handle
projected growth and support the deployment of new voice-related
services on its mobile network.

Comverse Voice HUB brings to Orange Cameroon a modular
state-of-the-art platform that enables a range of voice services
designed to generate revenue at each stage of a voice call.

In Cameroon, the Comverse services include:

• Visual Voicemail, which notifies users by multimedia message (MMS)
or email when a voicemail has been deposited. Users click to hear the

• Who Called, which monetizes previously lost revenue opportunities
by delivering network-based information that the handset alone cannot
provide, such as the phone numbers of callers to subscribers whose
handsets are busy or unreachable (turned off, out of battery or out of
service range), as well as the phone numbers of callers who reach the
voicemail system but do not leave a message; and

• Notify Me, which alerts callers when unavailable parties become reachable.

As part of the Visual Voicemail service, subscribers also have
access to the Comverse Web Inbox, where all voice and fax messages are
directed to a single Web-based inbox with at-a-glance details about
each message. With a click, Orange subscribers can access and manage
all of their messages in any order from anywhere in the world. In
addition, Comverse Web Self Care allows Orange subscribers to control
major aspects of their voicemail services through the operator’s portal.

single platform squarely address our key concerns, such as innovation,
a superior user experience, flexibility, future-readiness, and cost
management,” said Jean Michel Latute, Chief Executive Officer at Orange
