DSET Corp. (Booth 516) has showcased its service bureau gateway offering at COMPTEL.
Launched last year, the service bureau portfolio consists of local services, access services (including preorder), trouble administration, number port, caller ID, E911, calling cards and primary interexchange carrier care functionality.
The service bureau offerings are hosted at DSETs facility and maintained on a round-the-clock basis. DSET software enables telecommunications providers to implement electronic Trading Partner Networks (TPNs) to access the hosted services; each client company has its own private and secure database and can access services remotely from a Web browser.
DSET also provides the installation, interoperability-testing, training and maintenance services required to put TPNs into production and maintain smooth operation.
The gateways target all tiers of providers; they can handle an unlimited number of trading partners and thousands of transactions per day, the company said.
