UK operator BT and Indian vendor Subex have signed a new three-year framework contract. Subex will supply products and services relating to revenue assurance, fraud detection, interconnect billing and event integrity. According to the press release, the deal is estimated to be worth US$50 million.
It looks like this deal builds upon the existing relationship between Subex and BT’s Global Services division. Some of the elements, like managed services for the BASALT data repository, were anticipated in a previous press release of January this year. The deal comes at a good time for Subex. The vendor is under pressure from investors wanting to see a turnaround in fortunes. Subex suffered big losses for the last financial year. After making cutbacks, Subex needs to show increasing profitability each quarter this year if it is to meet expectations.
