Denmark’s TDC selects Alcatel’s IMS-enabled solution to deliver Managed Communications Services


Paris, September 25, 2006 - Alcatel (Paris: CGEP.PA and NYSE: ALA) today announced that it has been selected by TDC, Denmark’s leading telecommunications provider, for an IMS-enabled managed communication services (MCS) solution for enterprise customers in Denmark. Alcatel’s MCS solution enables service providers to deliver advanced and innovative services (like voice VPN and virtual PBX) that allow their enterprise customers to focus on their core business activities.

The solution will enable TDC to realize new revenue streams through the delivery of advanced and innovative enterprise services, while providing their enterprise customers with the flexibility to modify services, balance costs between capital expenditures (CAPEX) and operational expenditures (OPEX), and focus on their core business activities by delegating ICT management to service providers.

“Enterprises are delegating the management of their telecommunications infrastructure to service providers because it results in many advantages,” said Klaus Pedersen, Director at TDC. “Not only does it allow them to focus on their core business activities, but it can result in significant cost savings and efficiency improvements.”

“This project represents a major step towards the delivery of IMS-enabled managed communication services in Denmark,” said Monika Maurer, President of Alcatel’s fixed solutions activities. “Alcatel and TDC have worked together in bringing innovative services to TDC’s customers in the past and, once again, we look forward to working with them as they make fixed-mobile convergence a reality in the enterprise world.”

Alcatel will provide TDC with complete systems integration services, including project management, software integration, installation, commissioning and maintenance. Alcatel will also provide its 8640 Corporate Mobility Manager (CMM), a versatile network application that spans PSTN, SIP and mobile networks, enabling enterprises to integrate all their employees into one converged communication system across locations, networks and devices. The Alcatel 8640 CMM offers advanced fixed-mobile convergence services, enhanced voice/multimedia virtual private network (VPN) and virtual PBX services and runs on Alcatel’s 8690 Open Services Platform (OSP).

The Alcatel 8690 OSP, one of Alcatel’s next-generation service delivery platforms, supports the installed base of existing services while providing a seamless evolution to new NGN/IMS multimedia services. The Alcatel 8690 OSP also allows service providers to reduce operational costs (by integrating their service network with existing front- and back-office OSS/BSS) while guaranteeing fast time-to-market for these new services.
