The Rodopi Bottom Line

July 2007


www.rodopi.com
Welcome to the July 2007 edition of the Rodopi Bottom Line. Inside you’ll find summaries of the latest developments at Rodopi; including new products, new partnerships, recent customer implementations, and other breaking news. As always, we encourage you to contact your Rodopi sales representative for details and an update on our commitment to continually improve the experience of being a Rodopi customer.

Release 5.5 SP2 Now Available

We’re happy to announce the immediate availability of Service Pack 2 for Rodopi OSS Version 5.5. In addition to the standard bug fixes and refinements, SP2 offers the following new features:

Advanced Tax Module Now Available

Rodopi now offers extensive support for the complex tax requirements brought about by such services as Voice over IP. Now customers may use external tax applications from Vertex and CCH, in addition to an Advanced Tax Module (ATM) from Rodopi. For customers requiring sophisticated treatment of taxation on a per service and apportioned basis, the external lookup and third party integrations increase flexibility and facilitate compliance. The ATM is ideal for applications in which detailed tax rules are required, but the range of tax methods doesn’t warrant a third party rate subscription. An included tax journal provides an audit trail and reporting of applied taxations.

New Partners

In our ongoing effort to increase our customers’ competitiveness and add value to their investment in Rodopi, we’re proud to announce the addition of the following strategic partners to the Rodopi ecosystem:

Igneite – Integration and implementation consulting services for IP services billing and customer management
Incognito – Advanced CPE provisioning including DOCSIS and SIP devices
Stratus® – VoIP and triple play services for broadband operators

New and Updated Integrations

Key to the Rodopi value proposition is the availability of packaged integration modules to provide off-the-shelf interoperability with leading third party hardware and software applications for broadband services. Driven by customer requests and market demand, we have significantly expanded our library of integration modules to include the following:

Customer Implementations

We continue to grow and strengthen the community of Rodopi users, currently more than 600 companies in 50 countries. The diversity of business and operations processes supported, the service types and market segments covered, and the geographic dispersion is testimony to our focus on flexible technologies and enabling business models.
