Euronews: DT Overturns $791M Lawsuit

Paul Rainford

Deutsche Telekom AG, Orange Business Services, ST-Ericsson and ADVA Optical Networking are the crispy croutons in today's EMEA news broth.

  • Deutsche Telekom is US$791 million to the good after a lawsuit brought against it by Munich-based Telegate was dismissed, reports Bloomberg. The spat centered on how much Deutsche Telekom charged for its directory data.
  • T-Systems International GmbH, Deutsche Telekom's enterprise arm, has formed a videoconferencing partnership with Orange Business Services, which will allow customers who use T-Systems' videoconferencing system to meet live with users of Orange's equivalent offering. And, talking of Orange, France Télécom – Orange shareholders have agreed to stop the hyphen madness and rename the company "Orange," plain and simple, as from July 1. (See Orange Business, T-Systems Team on Videoconferencing and France Telecom to Become Orange.)
  • ST-Ericsson has sold its GPS unit to Intel Corp. in a move that forms part of the dismemberment of the company that was announced in March. Around 130 employees will be transferred in the deal. (See Euronews: ST-Ericsson Does the Splits.)
  • U.K. broadband provider Zen Internet is hoping to bolster its Ethernet services offer by deploying ADVA's FSP 150 access device, which monitors availability, latency, jitter and packet loss. (See Zen Internet Deploys ADVA's FSP 150.)
  • South Africa's MTN Group Ltd. saw revenue grow by almost 6 percent and subscriber numbers rise 4 percent in the first four months of the year, reports Reuters.
  • Interoute Communications Ltd., the pan-European services provider, has launched a dedicated NetApp cloud service for data and application storage as part of its Virtual Data Centre (VDC) offering.
