DeutschlandLAN: First pilot customers rely on ’connected work’ package


* Business telecommunications package with web applications for voice and data communication
* Perfect cost transparency as array of services are included in fixed monthly price
* German Association for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses one of first users

An important step for connected work: Right now, the first pilot customers of Deutsche Telekom are using DeutschlandLAN, the network-based solution for all business communication, whether at the office and on the road. DeutschlandLAN’s hallmark is a standard user interface, which integrates all communications channels: phone, e-mail, SMS and instant messaging. Forming the technical basis for the solution are a powerful data connection and web-based communications applications. This includes a virtual PABX, Microsoft Hosted Exchange and a platform that allows collaboration across locations. The company address book is available on the Internet at any time and from any place. The fixed price includes practically all services, including hardware. Deutsche Telekom will be offering an attractive all-in-one package for five workstations for its upcoming market launch.

One of the first pilot customers for DeutschlandLAN is the Hamburg representative office of the German Association for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses (BVMW). More than 150,000 companies are members of the BVMW or its partner associations. “DeutschlandLAN is our new top package for any small and medium-sized company or organization that wants to make their connected work efficient,” says Dirk Backofen, Head of Business Marketing, Deutsche Telekom Deutschland GmbH. “The package is the first to integrate mobile, fixed-network services and applications into a single, standard user interface. It allows companies to bring all telecommunications together while keeping costs low and transparent and without any investment in hardware or software.”

“For our new regional office in Hamburg, we were looking for an innovative communications solution that combined fixed-network and mobile telephony with modern data communications and was tailored to our needs,” explains Andreas Feike of BVMW for the Hamburg region. “We found the perfect solution - DeutschlandLAN. It is an attractive offer, and we are very impressed, not only by the many service features but also by the cost transparency.”

The central component of DeutschlandLAN is a symmetrical Internet connection with a transmission rate of 10 megabits per second (Mbit/s), eight fixed IP addresses, and up to 20 voice channels. The most important DeutschlandLAN services, which are hosted at Deutsche Telekom’s high-security data center, include a virtual PABX, a communication center for connected work, an Exchange mail server and a central address book.

DeutschlandLAN comes with a SNOM 320 IP desk phone, the PC client for the communication center with an e-mail inbox, and applications for conferencing, indicating online status and instant messaging. The mobile component of DeutschlandLAN is the Nokia E72 business cell phone included in the price.

The monthly fee for the basic version of DeutschlandLAN includes all data connections via the fixed-network line, all fixed-line calls within Germany and all calls to German mobile networks (not including service and special phone numbers in either case). The cell phones use the Combi Flat S Business mobile rate, which includes a flat rate for calls to the included fixed and mobile lines of any company that uses DeutschlandLAN. The solution comes with a monthly mobile data transmission volume of 200 MB. During the introductory period, the DeutschlandLAN starter package for five workstations costs EUR 495.00 per month net. Customers who want to integrate more employees into their DeutschlandLAN can order additional workstations at a scaled rate.
