Cesky Telecom Migrates To New Messaging System
WOODBURY, NY - Comverse, a supplier of software and systems enabling network-based multimedia enhanced communications services (a unit of Comverse Technology Inc. NASDAQ: CMVT), announced that the Czech operator Cesky Telecom has deployed Comverse messaging solutions. Messaging systems, in addition to hosting voicemail, are also versatile platforms for many other enhanced services. When it became clear that the former voicemail system was obsolete for the Czech operator's developing needs, Cesky Telecom selected Siemens to provide a Comverse system capable of integrating voicemail, unified messaging, voice control and multimedia applications, and future-ready for next generation services. "Siemens and Comverse implemented the new messaging system that can support our future plans to introduce new customized services and features that best meet the needs of our subscribers," said Milo? Mastn?k, Executive Director for Product Management at Cesky Telecom. "We are pleased that our customers will now benefit from the expertise of Comverse in messaging." Another element of the Cesky Telecom upgrade was renumbering of the whole telecommunication network at Czech Republic that was coincidently in process at the final stage of Comverse system implementation. Director of Siemens Group Information and Communication Networks Czech Republic Petr Klauda said, "We have chosen the right partner to handle the migration from the legacy voicemail system seamlessly and deliver the advanced messaging technology to Cesky Telecom. We are excited to embark on another major project together with our partner Comverse." Zeev Bregman, Chief Executive Officer at Comverse, said, "We welcome Cesky Telecom to the large family of operators using Comverse products to provide the highest standard of user experience, and to increase profitability and market share," said. "We are also pleased to continue our ongoing partnership with Siemens, combining their network solutions with our portfolio of services - the largest in the industry - and with our open, modular IP-based platform delivering rapid deployment of applications."
