PARIS -- EWE TEL GmbH, a regional telecommunications provider in Germany has selected Alcatel's (Paris: CGEP.PA and NYSE: ALA) softswitches and media gateways, which are the central component for upgrading the telecommunications network to a multimedia Voice over IP (VoIP) network.
EWE TEL will start the migration of the existing infrastructure to an IP-based next-generation network (NGN) as early as the beginning of 2005 in the German states of Lower Saxony, Bremen, and Brandenburg, setting a course for growth. "Alcatel was our first choice as a system supplier for a next generation network with a future-oriented architecture - not least because we had good experiences with the test installations in our existing infrastructure," EWE TEL managing director Dirk Thole explained.
A core component of modern voice and multimedia services, Alcatel's Softswitch is a major part of upgrading an existing telecommunications network to a next generation network. It provides the capability to offer customers triple play services (data/Internet, video/TV, voice/VoIP) on a single platform.
Alan Mottram, President of Alcatel's fixed solutions activities, sees the EWE TEL contract as a very important milestone. "We're pleased to be able to support EWE TEL in utilizing future-oriented technologies for integrated voice and data applications."
