Telekom Austria Group selects ZTE to deploy converged voice network

3 May 2013

Telekom Austria Group has selected China’s ZTE Corporation to provide a Circuit Switched (CS) soft-switch and centralised IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) in its ‘northern operational districts’, which are defined as Austria, Slovenia and Liechtenstein. ZTE will realise the project in collaboration with local systems integrator Kapsch Carrier Com (KCC). The newly-built IMS network will support various future developments, including the move towards Rich Communication Suite-enhanced (RCS-e) functionality and Voice-over-Long Term Evolution (VoLTE).The deployment is expected to reduce the Telekom Austria Group’s physical footprint, enhance service quality and reduce CAPEX.
