As reported in a press release, Mobilkom Austria is deploying an enhanced network based on an IMS-ready Mobile Switching Centre (MSC) solution supplied by Kapsch CarrierCom and Nortel Networks, to support regional expansion of mobile broadband and other services. The solution is designed to convert Mobilkom Austria’s existing network into a robust, carrier-grade network with added flexibility for introducing new applications including TV- and GPS-based services, and enhanced reliability, as well as ensuring quality of service. The companies have completed the first phase of the project in Austria and work has already begun on upgrades at the group’s subsidiaries in Slovenia (Si.Mobil) and Liechtenstein (Mobilkom Liechtenstein). Mobilkom’s solution is founded on Nortel’s Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA)-based MSC server, which promises lower maintenance and operation costs and requires less space and power. ‘The ATCA-compliant, All-IP Voice Core Solution being used by Mobilkom Austria helps cut operating costs and offers ease of transition to enhanced services, including IMS,’ said Peter Newcombe, vice-president, Carrier Networks, EMEA, Nortel.
