MARKHAM, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/14 -- Albatross Scandinavia AB, an Enghouse Networks company, is pleased to announce the signing of a new frame agreement with TDC Sweden to evolve its next generation services. The agreement involves fully managed delivery and IMS migration of routing services for Sweden and Norway.
TDC identified continued migration from traditional landline telephony to IP-based solutions and mobile-only as a key strategic industry trend. To align their business goals and stimulate revenue growth, TDC needed to move their services from outdated, complex and costly INAP-based TDM/IN environments to IP-based IMS/NGIN without service disruption, loss of present functionality or subscriber experience.
Albatross has provided and managed Intelligent Network services for TDC since 2004. Albatross's iNode system functions as a traditional SCP in the TDM network and an Application Server and/or ENUM Server in the IMS network using the same provisioning interface. This provides ease of management when the networks are converged, saving time and money. The migration is seamless for end users as the same service logic is used regardless of the type of network.
Albatross delivers high quality services with flexibility in service design and provides additional features. Albatross's highly skilled experts fully manage the migrated IMS services for TDC in a secure and reliable manner.
TDC can now migrate to the new network with confidence, deliver services faster to market, provide enhancements, increase run-rate savings, and move customers at their own pace.
"What motivated us to continue our long-term relationship with Albatross in managing and developing our routing services, was their ability to provide smooth migrations from TDM-based services to VoIP and IMS. As one of the largest Nordic operators, it's essential for us in TDC to have strong relationships with our suppliers," stated Jimmy Svensson, Head of Development & Platforms, TDC Sweden.
TDC offers total solutions for voice, data and video to businesses and organizations in which these solutions contribute significant business value. TDC is a Nordic provider with its own Nordic network, but at the same time has a local presence. In Sweden, TDC is represented all over the country with 800 employees. TDC Sweden AB is a wholly owned subsidiary of the TDC Group - Nordic region's third largest telecom company with an annual revenue of 24.6 billion DKK and approximately 9,000 employees (2013). TDC was founded in Denmark in 1882.

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
