PARIS -- Thomson (Euronext 18453; NYSE; TMS) today announced that GTS Datanet has chosen its Cirpack VoIP switching platforms for the launch of new double play and IP Centrex services. GTS Datanet is the largest alternative operator in Hungary and a subsidiary of GTS Central Europe, the biggest alternative operator in the region. GTS Datanet is the third member of the GTS Central Europe group to select Thomson’s Cirpack solutions, following announcements by GTS Telecom in Romania and GTS Nextra in Slovakia in 2004 and 2005.

GTS Central Europe is a provider of integrated telecommunications solutions with its own fibre based network in Central Europe. Its Hungarian subsidiary is preparing to launch a range of double play and IP Centrex packages for its operator and business clients with the intention of attracting 20,000 new customers within 12 months of launch. To fulfil these requirements, GTS Datanet needed a carrier grade platform capable of offering full class 5 voice features.

Geza Szathmari, CEO of GTS Datanet explained “Our strategy is to increase market share with all customers - residential, business and carrier clients, by offering attractively priced advanced telephony solutions. We needed a softswitch able to provide all traditional TDM functions as well as new IP based services. Thomson’s Cirpack softswitches and gateways offer all the necessary services at a competitive price level. In addition, the Cirpack solution is a trusted reference for us due to its experience with GTS Telecom in Romania and GTS Nextra in Slovakia, supporting deployment of VoIP services with IP Centrex.”
