By Calvin Azuri, TMCnet Contributor

IBBS and Power & Tel reportedly say they’re forging a partnership to provide triple play services throughout Latin America.
Power & Tel (News - Alert) will now serve as a reseller in Central America, South America, Mexico and the Caribbean for IBBS’ Broadband Explorer diagnostics and provisioning software. IBBS (News - Alert) provides mission-critical OSS software and services for global broadband Internet Service Providers and tier-2 cable operators.
Paulo Eduardo da Silva, the RCDD International Managing Director for Power& Tel, said that his company takes pride in its ability to meet consistently the changing needs of all of customers. IBBS’s software provides complete diagnostic, provisioning, NOC (News - Alert) and ISP services, which in turn empowers Power & Tel to deliver a total solution for triple play services.
With the help of its BBX Diagnostic and Provisioning software and portfolio of network management services, IBBS has been helping more than 200 of its customers to reduce truck rolls quickly and cost-effectively, call handle time and mean-time-to-repair, address and resolve customer issues and drive higher levels of organizational performance.
The chief executive officer of IBBS, David Keil (News - Alert), said that as a company built by cable veterans to serve the cable industry, IBBS looks forward to teaming with Power &Tel to expand the reach of solutions tailored to the specific needs of cable providers in Latin American markets.
“Power and Tel has excellent relationships and a reputation for providing very high customer service and was a natural partner for IBBS,” Keil said. “I am confident that our joint efforts in Latin America will lead to significant success for both organizations.”
Since 2001, IBBS and its customers have been providing customer service and network management by taking full advantage of the Broadband Explorer (News - Alert) Provisioning and Diagnostic Software Suite and enabling the Triple Play through wired and wireless networks.  Power & Tel gives customers the complete product solution for today’s communication service provider and is a full-line distributor of material from the top manufacturers in the industry.
