Munich, Germany, March 04, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- ECT (European Computer Telecoms AG), vendor of complete solutions for value-added services in the voice and multimedia domain, announces that it has won a major tender from a former European incumbent.
ECT will replace a legacy IN (Intelligent Network) solution from Alcatel-Lucent and migrate all services to its INtellECT® Next-Generation Intelligent Network (NGIN).
After having selected the IMS core of Alcatel-Lucent, this European national mobile and fixed-line network provider was looking for new solutions to replace a legacy In which would shortly reach end of life. Number translation, interactive voice response, televoting and proprietary call center services needed to be migrated from the existing legacy solution without any disruption of the extensive customer base. In addition, this network provider was looking to implement new state-of-the-art services on the same platform, e.g. virtual PBX service, and required an extensive and easy-to-use service creation environment. Key selection criteria were cost-effectiveness, openness and proven IMS interoperability of the solution as well as time to market. All major vendors participated in this important tender and after a thorough investigation ECT was awarded this multi-million Euro contract.
Within four months, the new INtellECT® NGIN platform was delivered and integrated into the network and the first services will be migrated the middle of this year. ECT will also provide the complete network integration and 365/24/7 maintenance via its European sales and service subsidiaries.
