Comverse has integrated its Data Mediation, Policy Management and Kenan Customer Care Web Portal capabilities with Foxtel’s existing Comverse Kenan platform, resulting in a robust, streamlined and cost efficient system to support its growing media and digital services.

Foxtel’s existing Comverse Kenan solution remains the backbone of the company’s multi-play success, providing single-source convenience for customer care and technical support. The new Comverse solutions are all tightly integrated with Kenan, resulting in maximized efficiencies, increased performance and a superior customer experience.
