Telecommunications Systems and Equipment Attestation Services
TÜV SÜDBABT provides services to manufacturers of systems and equipment, for example Communication Support Systems, which are used within the Total Metering and Billing System and can play a vital role in ensuring its integrity. We can assess the robustness of these systems against a TÜV SÜD BABT Code of Practice and provide an attestation of their performance. This adds value to the manufacturer as a way of differentiating his product, and to the Communications Provider, who can use the product with the peace of mind that it has been independently assessed by TÜV SÜDBABT’s team of experts.
In this increasingly competitive marketplace it is essential that system suppliers are able to differentiate their products. TÜV SÜD BABT has introduced this new assessment service for suppliers to mobile and fixed communications providers of billing, mediation, provisioning and customer support systems.
This is particularly important now with the advent of the Ofcom Metering & Billing Direction 2008 as the onus is on support system suppliers to demonstrate that their products have the capability to meet the needs of the Direction when used as an element of a provider’s Total Metering and Billing System (TMBS).
Whilst it is not possible for billing or mediation hardware systems to be approved under the Direction, TÜV SÜD BABT has developed a unique assessment approach which can lead to an attestation of the product. This independent third party attestation from TÜV SÜD BABT, as the UK’s leading Approval Body under the Direction, will provide evidence to your customers that your product will meet their needs for accuracy, reliability and timeliness.
