StreamWIDE's My Social Line, the Technical Solution Behind Bouygues Telecom's B.duo Virtual Numbers Service

PARIS, Dec 19, 2012 (PR Newswire Europe via COMTEX) -- PARIS, December 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- StreamWIDE (FR0010528059 - ALSTW), the specialist in next generation value-added telephony solutions for telecom operators provides its solution "My Social Line" to Bouygues Telecom, a French global operator of Mobile, Fixed, TV and Internet communications for the launch of its service "B. duo beta". This advanced offering provides end-users with a second mobile number, all from one single SIM Card.

Bouygues Telecom customers now testing the B.duo beta service can place and receive calls and SMS directly on their second line, through their current device, without the need to subscribe to a second package. Users can customize their added virtual line to receive calls only during determined time slots; communications received outside of the designated time slots are sent directly to voicemail. The service's functionalities are also available through Facebook(R) and a mobile application for Android(TM) smartphones.

Applauded by French media for its originality, the service is a perfect solution for one-shot use cases (for example, selling a car), or permanent ones (managing one's personal/professional life). The service relies on StreamWIDE's "My Social Line" solution, embedding core network components for routing and virtual numbers management, as well as a Facebook and a mobile application, both designed as white-label.

"Less than nine months were necessary to move from a marketing concept to a live and functional service, a performance in the world of mobile telephony that we owe to an excellent collaboration between teams," commented a Bouygues Telecom officer.

"Bouygues Telecom's B.duo service gives a perfect illustration of StreamWIDE positioning: supply solutions to mobile operators enabling them to build upon their core assets while leveraging Over-The-Top resources to innovate and add value to their telephony offerings," declared Pierre-Claude Grall, VP Sales French Operations for StreamWIDE.
