AinaCom picks Nokia’s business communication solution for its fixed mobile convergence offering to enterprises


January 09, 2007 - Espoo, Finland - Nokia and AinaCom, a Finnish regional operator, have sealed a deal to provide an operator hosted solution for convergent business voice services. The Nokia Business Communication solution enables AinaCom to offer enterprise users the same rich voice services on any device, over any access.

“Enterprises need to solve the challenge of combining mobility with the emergence of Voice over Internet technology. The Nokia solution provides us with a cost-effective way to meet that challenge,” says Kari Tavisalo, Director of Networks and Service Production, AinaCom.

“The Nokia Business Communication solution has been designed to meet the strictest requirements for business voice services,” says Sakari Kotola, Director, FMC Marketing, Networks, Nokia. “In particular, our focus lies on providing hosted business voice services that free enterprises to outsource their PBX system, either partly or completely, to AinaCom.”

Nokia’s Business Communication solution provides seamless enterprise services for SIP fixed/mobile phones, as well as for circuit switched 2G/3G mobiles. Nokia’s solution provides PBX-like call handling features for personal users and enterprise groups, including attendant services, virtual private numbering, call diversion, multiparty calls, call transfer, call hold, voicemail integration, and hunt groups. Nokia will also provide self-administration and provisioning tools for enterprises, as well as integration with AinaCom’s existing PBX solutions.

Nokia is creating seamless personalized user experiences in converging networks thanks to the Nokia Business Communication solution, the Nokia VoIP Server, mobile softswitching and -- since its first commercial deployment in June 2005 --the world’s most widely used IMS solution for fixed and mobile.
