Euronews: August 5

12:45 PM -- It's another day of heavyweight financial reporting, as Deutsche Telekom AG (NYSE: DT) and Portugal Telecom SGPS SA (NYSE: PT) spill their latest financial numbers, while French access router vendor OneAccess is adding to its platform.

  • Deutsche Telekom steered a steady ship in the second quarter. Its numbers showed a year-on-year decline in revenues and earnings, but that's because it no longer includes its UK operation, which is now part of the bizarrely named joint venture, Everything Everywhere. Its adjusted numbers, which use like-for-like comparisons with a year ago, show a slight increase in revenues and net profit, as Dow Jones Newswires explains. (See Deutsche Telekom Reports Q2 and Orange, T-Mobile Do Everything Everywhere .)

  • Portugal Telecom may be getting €7.5 billion (US$9.9 billion) for its stake in Vivo Participacoes SA , but its second-quarter numbers show just how much it's going to miss the Brazilian mobile operator's contribution to its sales and profits. (See Vivo's Value and Portugal Telecom Posts Q2.)

  • French vendor OneAccess, which teams up with carriers to sell its access routers to enterprise users, is adding session border controller (SBC) capabilities to its platform, enabling service providers to manage SIP-based voice traffic between their networks and enterprise LANs without having to re-engineer their core network SBCs, according to the vendor. (See OneAccess Adds SBC to Its Router.)
