MARKHAM, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/14 -- Albatross Scandinavia AB, an Enghouse Networks company, is pleased to announce the signing of a new frame agreement with TDC Sweden to evolve its next generation services. The agreement involves fully managed delivery and IMS migration of routing services for Sweden and Norway.
TDC identified continued migration from traditional landline telephony to IP-based solutions and mobile-only as a key strategic industry trend. To align their business goals and stimulate revenue growth, TDC needed to move their services from outdated, complex and costly INAP-based TDM/IN environments to IP-based IMS/NGIN without service disruption, loss of present functionality or subscriber experience.
Albatross has provided and managed Intelligent Network services for TDC since 2004. Albatross's iNode system functions as a traditional SCP in the TDM network and an Application Server and/or ENUM Server in the IMS network using the same provisioning interface. This provides ease of management when the networks are converged, saving time and money. The migration is seamless for end users as the same service logic is used regardless of the type of network.
Albatross delivers high quality services with flexibility in service design and provides additional features. Albatross's highly skilled experts fully manage the migrated IMS services for TDC in a secure and reliable manner.
TDC can now migrate to the new network with confidence, deliver services faster to market, provide enhancements, increase run-rate savings, and move customers at their own pace.
"What motivated us to continue our long-term relationship with Albatross in managing and developing our routing services, was their ability to provide smooth migrations from TDM-based services to VoIP and IMS. As one of the largest Nordic operators, it's essential for us in TDC to have strong relationships with our suppliers," stated Jimmy Svensson, Head of Development & Platforms, TDC Sweden.
TDC offers total solutions for voice, data and video to businesses and organizations in which these solutions contribute significant business value. TDC is a Nordic provider with its own Nordic network, but at the same time has a local presence. In Sweden, TDC is represented all over the country with 800 employees. TDC Sweden AB is a wholly owned subsidiary of the TDC Group - Nordic region's third largest telecom company with an annual revenue of 24.6 billion DKK and approximately 9,000 employees (2013). TDC was founded in Denmark in 1882.
