Nokia has announced a collaboration with Telecom Italia to accelerate the adoption of new Internet services on mobile. Ovi, the gateway to Nokia's Internet services, will be enabled on Nokia handsets offered by TIM. The agreement will make it easy for people to find and enjoy best-in-class Internet services, from TIM, Nokia or from other Internet service providers.

As part of the collaboration, Nokia will customize the new Nokia handsets to provide easy access to TIM services. Similarly, TIM customers can access all Nokia services through the customized Multimedia Menu embedded into their Nokia device. The collaboration also includes areas such as technology and billing co-operation.

The Nokia N95 8GB and the Nokia N81 will be the first devices offered that will have customized menus to provide easy access to both services. Nokia and TIM have also agreed on a sustainable business model for both parties in a mutually beneficial approach.

"We want to provide TIM mobile customers with the best mobile experience and by working with Nokia, we ensure that our customers have access to the best in internet services. Nokia and other Internet services will be able to take advantage of TIM's high quality mobile broadband network," said Riccardo Jelmini, Telecom Italia Executive Vice President VAS - Domestic Mobile Services. 

"We're extremely excited about this collaboration as I believe it can pave the way for a new way of working throughout our industry," said Jyrki Salminen, Senior Vice President, Nokia Multimedia. "Ease of use has always been at heart of Nokia devices and this collaboration is an important step in creating the same for Internet services. Nokia devices and services are based on open standards making it easy for us to work with forward thinking operators such as TIM to provide consumers with a choice about which internet services they want to access from their mobile device."

Comptel, the vendor of dynamic Operations Support System (OSS) software, has announced that it will deliver a complete solution for managing subscriber services and charging to Finnish service provider Setera Communications. This solution will be based around standard components from Comptel's service fulfillment, mediation and charging portfolio, but deployed in a new innovative way. 

Founded in 2006, Setera focuses providing IP- centric business voice, data and value-added service solutions. Setera's target customers are small and medium sized multi-location enterprises, as well service providers looking to add voice solutions into their existing product portfolio. As a new and rapidly growing service provider, Setera wanted a solution that would allow them to manage subscriptions and charge for the services they offer their customers and channel partners without investing in the traditional separate billing and order management systems.

Mr Tuomo Kiesvaara, CEO at Setera says: "We chose Comptel because of their proven portfolio of operator back-end systems. Their understanding of the change taking place in operator business models, combined with their capability to adapt their standard components into the IP-centric business model of Setera, is perfectly aligned with our vision of the winning future operating model.

"With Comptel as our partner in one of the critical and most complex areas of operator business, we are well positioned to continue our growth and expand our service portfolio during the coming years" continues Kiesvaara.

Mr. Harri Palviainen, Comptel's Executive Vice President for Sales, concludes:."Comptel thrives on innovation, as we believe it reduces the time to market and increases the value for money for our customers.  This project with Setera is an excellent illustration of how Comptel Dynamic OSS can be deployed in new ways to meet the requirements of an innovative service provider."

Subex, a global provider of Operations Support Systems (OSS) solutions for telecom operators , has announced it has dropped the Azure from its name.

Subash Menon, Founder Chairman, Managing Director & CEO, Subex said, "We adopted the name Subex Azure primarily to highlight the acquisition and subsequent integration of UK firm Azure in June 2006. This was in line with our strategy to leverage the recall and positioning of Azure in the market. The company has now fully benefited from that strategy and since then proceeded to acquire Canadian firm Syndesis. Now it's time to reposition Subex, the mother brand, as the primary brand."

The new name is the culmination of acquisitions to date, incorporating all assets and brand equity into a unified brand. It is also a reflection of the company's global consolidation and continuous product innovation.

Sanjeev Gadre, Vice President - Marketing, Subex Ltd said, "The stylised 'X' in the new Subex logo stands for the `X' factor that sets Subex apart in its domain. The colours purple and yellow are warm and reiterate Subex's vigour and passion. The usage of the lowercase type is representative of the company's youthful dynamism. The straight and thick lines are evocative of the strength with which the company leads the industry." 

Poland's newest and first multimedia mobile operator, PLAY, has selected Lavastorm, one of the world's leading business assurance software providers, to support their business processes for PLAY's UMTS mobile services. 

Lavastorm, a Martin Dawes Systems company, will provide PLAY with a completely converged solution covering Revenue Assurance, Fraud Management and Interconnect Settlement for its voice, broadband and video services.  The "triple play" solution will enable PLAY to manage the entire business assurance and risk management process, from third party fraud detection & prevention, assurance of revenues, through to control of interconnect and national roaming settlements.

In an increasingly competitive Polish market, the multimedia strategy of PLAY required a scalable and robust business assurance solution that could be delivered promptly.

Hans Cronberg, CTO of PLAY, comments: "The mobile market in Poland is growing rapidly and we are eager to provide an exciting portfolio of advanced services. By choosing Lavastorm we were provided with an integrated tool to flexibly secure our revenues, ensuring correct billing to our customers, and tracking our interconnect settlements.  The convergent "triple play" solution provided by Lavastorm is substantially more efficient from than traditional separate platforms for each application and will enable PLAY to minimize Capex and Opex related to business assurance processes.

Drew Rockwell, CEO, Lavastorm said: "We are delighted to be working with an advanced operator like PLAY and look forward to supporting the rollout of their exciting services in Poland. By employing a converged solution, operators like PLAY, can effectively provide "guardrails" for their business. Despite the dynamic and real-time nature of PLAY's system and processes, our business assurance solution will still be able to produce consistent and accurate financial and operational results. The Central and  Eastern European market holds enormous potential for us and presents an opportunity for us to leverage our successes and extensive experience. PLAY is a further indicator of our aggressive expansion plans in Europe and we plan to continue to capitalise on this momentum in the coming months."

Airwide Solutions, the leading provider of next-generation mobile messaging infrastructure and applications, today announced that the company has acquired First Hop of Espoo, Finland. First Hop is a pioneer in mobile service control and gateway technologies that enable operators to move at the speed of the market by rapidly implementing new mobile services, business models and targeted content and campaigns.

With more than 120 mobile operators served by the combined company, Airwide further establishes itself as a dominant player in the next-generation mobile messaging industry and firmly secures the number one position in the market for mobile service control and messaging gateways.

By acquiring First Hop, Airwide extends the flexibility of its tiered architecture for operators by adding the industry's most advanced multi-channel gateway as another step in enabling operators to add ‘best-of-breed,' open components to their networks. Airwide will also incorporate First Hop's powerful mobile service control capabilities into the next-generation Fusion architecture, expanding it beyond messaging with solutions for wireless internet browsing. First Hop's products, technology and team will be an integral part of Airwide's mission to provide the most advanced and effective solutions for driving mobile messaging usage and revenues and enabling operators to leverage multiple delivery channels and next-generation infrastructure in new and more powerful ways. Together, the companies are uniquely positioned to address the emerging industry requirements for Mobile Messaging 2.0, which emphasizes open, interoperable systems and is guiding the evolution of the mobile messaging industry.

By adding mobile service control -- which enables functionality like context, personalization and profiling -- to its industry-leading Fusion tiered architecture, Airwide will enable operators to rapidly launch more services and to build a dynamic and broad service offering that will drive subscriber messaging usage and ultimately revenues. Also, by expanding further into additional delivery channels like the HTTP and WAP based mobile internet, Airwide creates a foundation for bridging internet services and mobile networks that will let operators future proof their business models and revenue streams and create new and unique mobile services.

"The mobile messaging industry is poised for great change, and Airwide today is making a solid statement that we are going to be the company that drives the next stage of the market," said Kevin A. Wood, CEO of Airwide. "Operators continue to struggle with driving new revenue from mobile messaging services, and they are grappling with how to develop new business models such as ad-sponsored services. Combining First Hop's service control strengths and multi-channel delivery strategy with Airwide's next generation mobile messaging infrastructure we address these issues head-on, and our expanded vision will help us to meet operator needs now and in the future."

"Airwide and First Hop together are a real-world example of the sum being greater than the parts. By combining First Hop's strengths in service lifecycle management, context, profiling and personalization with Airwide's next generation mobile messaging infrastructure we are taking the market to an entirely new level," said Timo Laaksonen, CEO of First Hop. "We are confident that our integrated product lines will yield the industry's best performance, flexibility and functionality. With our combined resources we are better equipped to accelerate our R&D programs, enhance our worldwide service delivery capability and manage our commercial customer and partner relationships. In short, we are now ideally positioned for further business growth."

First Hop's service lifecycle management covers the end-to-end process of service provisioning, testing, launch, delivery, charging, and reporting through all mobile delivery channels. Operators can drive up service value and user experience through usage data analysis, subscription and campaign tools, and the capability of combining multiple network resources - like location, billing, and device profile - innovatively to rapidly launch new service concepts, context-aware services, or personalized bundles. Coupled with Airwide's Fusion architecture, customers will benefit from a range of solutions that will let them take advantage of value-added services like ad insertion, personalization, campaign management and promotion.

Fit with industry-leading Fusion architecture

Airwide's Fusion tiered architecture breaks traditional monolithic messaging infrastructures into tiers, including: storage, access and delivery, control, and application tiers, and uses independently scalable components to support multiple messaging and delivery types. With the acquisition of First Hop, Airwide now has a distinctly market leading, best-of-breed product at each tier. Additionally, the deal with First Hop significantly advances and expands Airwide's implementation of Fusion by bringing key session-based service capabilities to the architecture and by extending the scope to include internet services, content downloads and browsing.

Also, since Fusion is designed to allow cost-effective infrastructure scaling and the rapid deployment of revenue-generating applications, the addition of First Hop's service lifecycle management complements and extends it with a range of products to further address service creation along with traffic, third party and business management.

Unlocking the potential for mobile marketing and advertising

Demand for mobile marketing is skyrocketing, and through this acquisition Airwide is uniquely positioned to address this market need. Airwide can now enable multichannel ad-insertion with a modular service delivery platform that allows operators to create sponsored person-to-person and application-to-person messaging, to run targeted SMS, MMS and WAP Push and browsing campaigns to distribute personalized banner advertising.

Airwide also tackles the infrastructure-related inhibitors to mobile marketing by dramatically enhancing the reliability, performance and scalability of the infrastructure and providing a suite of solutions that broker the all-important context and profile information into advertising, improve the quality of interaction with the consumer and measure overall campaign effectiveness. Airwide also provides critical tools for protecting subscribers from SPAM and giving consumers the controls to ensure they only receive wanted information from trusted sources. Together, Airwide and First Hop have solutions for both the infrastructure concerns and the process issues that are keeping mobile marketing from reaching its full potential.

Nokia Siemens Networks has signed a frame agreement with Eutelia to build a high-performance fiber optic carrier network for the Italian operator. The new generation transport network will allow Eutelia to provide its customers with advanced services and to meet the growing demand for network capacity.

The new network, featuring Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology, will be able to respond to the growing traffic demand from Eutelia's customers across Italy, resulting from the rapidly increasing use of data and multimedia services . It will ensure at the same time notable flexibility and cost efficiency in providing and managing network resources.

With scalable DWDM technology, Eutelia will be able to boost traffic volume over its new fiber network and to provide a wide range of services. The system offers short implementation time and easy operation.

"The new network," comments Giovanni De Stefano, General Director of Eutelia, "is a part of Eutelia strategy to play a protagonist role in the next years, when competition will be tougher especially in the area of new services, thanks to wireless broadband access networks, as WiMax for example, which need a transport network with growing capacity and speed."

According to Roberto Loiola, the head of the South East Europe Subregion at Nokia Siemens Networks, "Eutelia is today one of the most dynamic and promising operators in the market for the provision of long-distance connectivity services and bases its growth strategies on innovative and high quality architectural and service standards. We are proud to be able to state that, even in this extremely competitive market, our company's offer has succeeded in expressing the right synthesis between technology and innovation, paying particular attention to its customer's real needs".

"We chose the Nokia Siemens Networks platform because its flexible transport architecture permits us to respond to the needs of a market which is constantly seeking greater band flexibility. Furthermore there is a simplified installation and maintenance. This particular system architecture needs few spare parts, which brings managing costs to a very low level," explains Andrea Lazzaroli , the head of the transport network division of Eutelia.

The Nokia Siemens Networks DWDM platform, together with the Telecommunications Network Management System (TNMS) is among a new class of products for building transparent optical networks. The solution offers a ready answer to the dramatic increase in network traffic caused by such applications like High Definition TV, movie downloads and Virtual Private Networks (VPN) for enterprises.

Nokia has announced that the Russian mobile operator MegaFon will offer a mobile email service based on the Nokia Intellisync Wireless Email solution. The hosted service, branded as MegaSync, will provide mobile email, advanced attachment handling, calendar, contacts and task synchronization to MegaFon's customers.

"We were looking for a highly flexible solution that would also allow us in future to offer mobile email to large companies that want to implement the solution behind the firewall," explains Petr M. Prokofiev, Project Manager, New Technologies and Projects Department, MegaFon. "We will offer the service on Nokia E90 Communicator and Nokia E61i business devices, but compatibility of the solution with other vendors' devices was paramount, as we want to offer as much flexibility to our customers as possible."

In addition to the Nokia Eseries portfolio, Nokia Intellisync Wireless Email supports more than 100 different devices - both smartphones and basic entry phones.

"Nokia Intellisync Wireless Email offers MegaFon a highly scalable platform, allowing them to keep pace with the demands of its fast expanding customer base," says Scott Cooper, senior vice president, Mobility Solutions, Enterprise Solutions, Nokia.

Subscriber management, controlling identity across multiple access networks, and delivering sophisticated data services, number among the biggest convergence challenges facing service providers, according to a wide-ranging global report launched today. The independent research, sponsored by Apertio, questioned over 70 global communication service providers on convergence issues.

The Data Consolidation report highlights a glaring disconnect between the demands of the market and CSPs ability to effectively address these issues and remain competitive. Indeed, the entrance of a new breed of MVNO, ISP, VoIP and Internet Provider competition was highlighted as the biggest challenge to delivering against corporate objectives over the next 12-24 months.

According to the research, this new competitive environment is providing the catalyst for CSPs to attach more importance to the effective management of their subscribers' data. This is highlighted as an important differentiator in the battle against customer churn and rapid new generation service delivery. Seventy-six percent of respondents agree subscriber data management is the greatest convergence issue for their organisation over the coming 12-24 months.

Confirming the launch of more sophisticated services as one of today's major challenges, (second only to the increasing competition from Internet players), the survey confirmed effective subscriber management and data centralisation as vital tools to addressing this issue:

- 80 percent of operators aim to launch new services within six months, less than a quarter currently do so, and none claim the ability to launch a new service within three months
- 76 percent believed subscriber data is the most important convergence issue for their organisation
- 60 percent of CSPs have plans to consolidate subscriber information from across the business into a single repository over the next 12-24 months

But, according to André Girard, Analyst in VDC's Telecom and Datacom Practice, operators cannot be complacent. CSPs must begin to build out consolidation strategies today: "Missing this goal creates a very real threat and provides a significant window of opportunity for these new brands to wrest market share away from incumbent leaders. Twenty-four months is a long-time in today's dynamic market so traditional Telco's must respond more rapidly and prioritise consolidation strategies to remain competitive."

When asked to focus on convergence issues around service provision across multiple access networks, the respondents highlighted issues of identity, access and authentication as the overriding challenge. Issues of assurance and security were considered important, but the key to converged service delivery is managing the experience across IP sessions.  Data consolidation is imperative in achieving this, as data silos are simply 'log jams' that serve to block the flow of customer access and operator response to customer needs.  Evidently, challenges surrounding the quality of service or the device have been superseded by the demand for managing users' experience throughout their journey. 

Commenting on the results, Andrew Wyatt, chief product operations officer at Apertio, said: "The survey shows that telecoms providers are acutely aware of the need to improve the management of customer data. However, the inflexible nature of legacy systems is totally at odds with the realties of delivering an increasingly complex matrix of sophisticated data services. Only with effective consolidation ensuring real-time visibility of all subscriber data, can CSPs hope to deliver the technology and service innovation so desperately needed in today's ultra-competitive convergence environment."

VivaCell General Manager Ralph Yirikian commented, "MACH's solution helps VivaCell to improve further its billing system, which surely makes the usage of VivaCell services for our roaming subscribers more comfortable and clear."

VivaCell's adoption of MACH Finance and IOT Check from MACH's advanced suite of solutions runs alongside MACH Data Clearing, a contract that has been extended by VivaCell. MACH Data Clearing enables VivaCell and mobile operators all over the world to exchange billing and settlement information on which the whole business concept of international roaming is based. MACH Finance is the globally renowned, proven financial clearing & settlement solution subscribed to by many leading operators.

Terence Ledger, Chief Commercial Officer, MACH commented, "We are delighted to extend our partnership with VivaCell, by not only renewing our existing Data Clearing contract, but by also delivering MACH Finance and MACH IOT Check". Terence Ledger concludes: "Eastern Europe is a big market for MACH, and extending contracts and supplying our solutions to companies like VivaCell is a great endorsement of our work in that market."

Bouygues Telecom has chosen a new solution from Nokia Siemens Networks to improve indoor GSM mobile network coverage for its customers. The innovative solution, featuring small-sized base stations, allows improving and extending coverage for instance in high office buildings, underground industrial areas or hotspots.

With the solution, Bouygues Telecom, aiming to become the preferred brand for mobile communications services, can increase traffic to meet enterprise demand for wireless communications by allowing the corporate users to experience the same voice and data services indoors as outdoors. In addition, Bouygues Telecom can provide cost effective hotspot coverage and capacity inside big buildings or such locations as shopping malls.
