ECT (European Computer Telecoms AG), vendor of complete solutions for value-added services in the voice and multimedia domain, won a multi-million Euro tender from a large carrier in Northern Europe for the migration of all its services from legacy systems to a new next-generation solution.

This carrier, like many others in the telecommunications industry, currently has an array of services on various legacy platforms, e.g. number portability service, number translation services, virtual private network services, virtual PBX service, etc. These legacy platforms need to be replaced as some have reached end of life and the carrier is now moving to a completely SIP-based network architecture. In addition, new services, such as full Microsoft Lync support, need to be realized to meet short-term market requirements.

As is usual in such cases, both a Request for Information and a Request for Proposals were issued and virtually all major vendors participated. After a selection process that took over one year, the carrier chose ECT.

The new solution will allow the carrier to cut significantly its operational expenditures (OPEX) since the carrier will be maintaining only one platform for all services. The carrier also opted to purchase some of the services via ECT’s revenue share model, which allows operators to realize new sophisticated services with the smallest possible CAPEX.

“This is another great win for us in Northern Europe,” explains Reinier Meuwissen Managing Director at European Computer Telecoms BV, responsible within the ECT Group for sales and maintenance services in the Benelux, Nordic and Baltic countries. “Customers appreciate our state-of-the-art technology combined with attractive business models which are designed to be mutually beneficial. In addition, we are providing the carrier a future-proof solution based on IP and ready for browser-based communication services via WebRTC. ”
