ST. LOUIS - January 29, 2014 - Amdocs (NASDAQ: DOX), the leading provider of customer experience systems and services, today announced a number of customer wins for mobile network optimization capabilities resulting from its recent acquisitions of Actix and Celcite.
These new deals, comprising of both new wins and expansions at existing customers include:
TIM Brasil to improve data traffic transmission across Brazil
TELUS (Canada) for 3G and LTE geo-location and radio access networks (RAN) consolidation into a single, unified solution that will enable TELUS to improve customer experience while realizing significant engineering efficiencies
Nextel Brasil (NII Group) selected ActixOne to be one of the network optimization solutions for its recently deployed 3G network in Brazil
Vodafone Germany to continue Vodafone's strategic RAN optimization program to increase efficiency, improve customer experience and enable advanced optimization
Telefónica Germany added 2G optimization to the company's existing ActixOne optimization platform and extended 3G and LTE coverage to 100 percent
"These projects at leading service providers around the world validate what we said when we acquired Actix and Celcite: that one of the largest pain points for service providers is dealing with issues that arise within the radio network, which are typically responsible for a large percentage of all customer satisfaction and churn problems," said Rebecca Prudhomme, vice president of product and solutions marketing at Amdocs. "Our Actix and Celcite acquisitions enable Amdocs to offer our customers solutions, both products and services, for the better management and RAN optimization of all mobile networks, including 2G, 3G, LTE and small cells."
Light Reading is spending much of this year digging into the details of how automation technology will impact the comms market, but let's take a moment to also look at how automation is set to overturn the current world order by the middle of the century.
Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.
During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.
She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
