Orange Polska Steers All-IP Pilot With Nokia Tech
ESPOO, Finland -- Nokia and Orange Polska have successfully completed a pilot project to prepare for the mass migration of Orange's legacy public switched telephone network (PSTN) services to an all-IP network ready to support current and future broadband needs.
The two companies conducted a pilot to migrate 4,000 subscribers in a suburban area of Warsaw, leveraging Nokia PSTN Smart Transform professional services capabilities along with a Network Migration Operating Center in Poland. All legacy PSTN services were successfully migrated to a modern unified IP network, with no impact on customer experience, enabling Orange to achieve significant operational benefits including energy savings and real estate optimization.
This pilot is an important milestone for all-IP network transformation program readiness. Within the scope of the agreement, Nokia, a key supplier for Orange Polska, is committed to customize migration tools, processes and the Migration Operating Center organization to support the All-IP program of Orange Polska.
Bringing the speed, reliability and capacity of IP communications to Poland will allow Orange Polska to offer voice and high speed Internet services and leverage unified access and core network platforms to deliver a better, richer customer experience. Poland is one of Orange Group's leading pilot technology markets in a larger global effort to implement an All-IP Transformation Program to replace legacy systems.
