Billing companies Basset and TailorMade merge in 2013

(Cision (English) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) First of January 2013 Basset AB will merge with TailorMade Consulting Group Sweden AB under the brand Basset. Both companies are owned by Modern Holdings Incorporated, a U.S. holding company. Both companies are specialized in software within the domain "Billing". The companies also have their history in the telecom industry but while Basset has stayed in the industry, TailorMade have been focusing on the energy market, where the need for more complex billing solutions increases with the rollout of smart meters and smart grids. The merged company will continue to focus on billing solutions for the Telecom and the Energy industries. Turnover for 2013 will be more than €11 million, and the company will have about 80 employees. The Company has over 200 installations in 70 countries, within telecom operators and utilities around the world. Jens Björkman, President of both Basset and Tailor Made, will continue as CEO of the new merged company and comments the merger as follows: - We are already a clear leader in our respective fields and markets. With this merger we can strengthen this lead further. The expertise we have in the area of billing and the "installed base" we have, will be a huge asset to our clients in the future product development. One of the driving forces behind the merger is product innovation within the billing domain, a very transaction intense environment. The possibilities and challenges of large transaction volumes are something the new company will work with and develop further. - I look forward to the merger. It will strengthen our brand further as we have great synergies in e.g. product innovation and software development. This is a merger with clear focus on growth and innovation. Both companies have a history of similar products with a focus on modular and easily integrated products. Going forward, this will be strengthened further, continues Jens Björkman.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
