Ericsson signs Next Generation Network contract with Dutch KPN International Network Services Ericsson has signed a strategic contract with Dutch operator KPN International Network Services for delivery of a Next Generation Network solution (NGN) based on Ericsson's ATM switch AXD 301 and Telephony Server. The solution efficiently integrates voice and datacom services in KPN's pan-European network for France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. The agreement includes immediate delivery of four AXE TransLocal 4 switches, Ericsson´s Cross Border Interconnect technology, its scalable ATM switch AXD 301, and Telephony Server. This solution positions KPN International to rapidly and efficiently migrate their infrastructure to ATM/IP (Internet Protocol) technology. The TransLocal 4 switches will be delivered and installed according to Ericsson's TTC24 concept - which means time to customer, from order to acceptance, in just 24 working days. The Ericsson Next Generation Network solution gives customers a future proof migration path to evolve their circuit switched networks to multi-service ATM- based packet networks. For KPN, the solution provides state-of-the-art carrier-class services, such as efficient international leased line data transport, voice over ATM, and multimedia services - all from one single network. Operators are able to bring new services to market faster and obtain greater flexibility by operating a single, multi-service network, instead of separate networks for voice and for data communications. Other customers who have embraced the Ericsson solution as a way forward include British Telecom and Telia Denmark. The Next Generation Network contract with KPN is a confirmation of Ericsson's leading position as a supplier of multi-service networks and its strategy for developing solutions to meet the demands of converged networks. Ericsson is the leading provider in the new telecoms world, with communications solutions that combine telecom and datacom technologies with freedom of mobility for the user. With more than 100,000 employees in 140 countries, Ericsson simplifies communications for its customers - network operators, service providers, enterprises and consumers - the world over.
