A flexible and cost effective telecom service platform
Paris, Vienna, 5 February 2013. Atos has been chosen by T-Mobile Austria for the
delivery and integration of its Next Generation Intelligent Network (NGIN -
SDP). This platform allows T-Mobile Austria to replace obsolete, or soon-to-be
obsolete, telecommunication services and set up a foundation for the quick and
cheap implementation of innovative applications.
Atos IN & NGIN skill center delivers telecom operators with turnkey systems, in
association with the leading software vendors on the market. In T-Mobile
Austria, Atos uses OpenCloud Telecom Application Server, global partner of Atos
since 2006 and provider of NGIN to several T-Mobile affiliates in Europe. The
scope of the project awarded to Atos includes from functional specifications and
hardware installation to rollout and support in operation.
While the project
started mid July 2012, subscribers were already migrated to
the new system in December of the same year, and were all successfully served
during the new year traffic peak.
"We have chosen Atos because of their ability to work with us, take strong
commitments and respond to our needs within a very short timeframe and meet the
demanding time to market. Project execution fully confirmed our choice, to our
complete satisfaction" says Markus Herferstorfer, Vice President Networks,
Product & Core Development T-Mobile Austria.
"For more than 15 years, Atos has worked with its telecom clients in the area of
service platforms. Atos proposes and develops industry solutions and products
that are innovative and respond to changing subscriber behaviours. The NGIN
reflects this goal and keeps pace with an ever changing environment," comments
Xavier Fouletier, Industry Leader, Telecom, Media and Technology at Atos.
