Openmind Networks, and its Russian partner Lanit, today announced that leading Russian operator OJSC VimpelCom (Beeline TM) has extended its deployment of its Traffic Control Mobile Messaging Platform.

VimpelCom will leverage Openmind’s Traffic Control Platform to support SMS traffic in Moscow and Central Russia during normal and peak periods. The operator also intends to use Traffic Control for SMS traffic on its network at non-peak times. The new roll out marks yet another expansion of VimpelCom’s existing Traffic Control deployment. VimpelCom has previously deployed SMSCs and Application Routers platforms.

“Openmind’s Traffic Control Platform has been very impressive in generating efficiencies across our network,” said Andrey Klimov, Head of service network development department of VimpelCom. “The new high-performance and very flexible SMS Infrastructure from Openmind allows us to implement new services much faster and more cost effectively. We look forward to further expanding our relationship with Openmind and Lanit in the future.”

“VimpelCom is a key customer for Openmind,” said Alex Duncan, CEO of Openmind. “With a subscriber base of 57.2 million in nine different time zones - they are at the top level of usage for our platform both in terms of volume and geographic spread. This deployment underlines the robustness and scalability of Openmind’s technology – which delivers tens of thousands messages every second for VimpelCom. We are absolutely delighted they have decided to expand our platform to support their messaging needs even further.”
