Slovak Telekom selects Vitalsuite® AAA Security Authentication Management solution from Alcatel-Lucent and its sales business partner BGS


Slovak Telekom, the leading telecommunications provider in Slovakia and subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, Alcatel-Lucent and BGS (Business Global Systems), an Alcatel-Lucent Sales Business Partner, today announced that they have deployed Alcatel-Lucent´s VitalSuite®AAA solution in Slovak Telekom´s broadband access network. The VitalSuite®AAA software provides authentication, authorization and accounting (AAA) of a half million residential and business subscribers of Slovak Telekom.

The solution, provided by Alcatel-Lucent and implemented by its sales business partner BGS, will support upcoming triple play services, a growing customer base and different access technologies -- like ADSL, dial-up through analog and ISDN lines, and WiFi -- within a single authentication platform. Alcatel-Lucent´s solution integrates AAA for different broadband technologies in a single security policy framework to ensure secure network access to Slovak Telekom’s network.

Alcatel-Lucent´s VitalSuite®AAA also enables Slovak Telekom to manage customer access to the network according to specific policy rules, which can easily be changed. Leveraging the new AAA solution, Slovak Telekom will be able to operate its network infrastructure more efficiently and deploy new fixed broadband and mobile data services with less preparation time.

“VitalSuite®AAA provided the perfect blend of features. It allows us to implement our AAA policies exactly the way we need,” said Stanislav Recky, head of Slovak Telekom’s Customer Applications department.

“With this introduction of a new OSS solution, Slovak Telekom can rest assured that the solution we implemented will keep up with any current or future requirements, for example in triple play services and fixed mobile convergence,” emphasized Lubos Koprda, CTO from BGS.

“VitalSuite®AAA provides Slovak Telekom with the highest flexibility for authentication management,” said Olivier Bruyndonckx, Europe and North Sales and Business Development Leader, OSS/BSS and Software Integration, Alcatel-Lucent. “This is especially important when it comes to introducing new services. Our solution is ready today to manage network access to new multimedia services which might be introduced in the future.”

In addition to providing the actual VitalSuite®AAA software, Alcatel-Lucent is providing tier-three and tier-four technical support to BGS. BGS is integrating the solution into Slovak Telekom´s existing network and OSS environment.
