Tech Mahindra accesses the world with

  1. 1. Tech Mahindra accesses the world with Evolved Networks Tech Mahindra and Evolved Networks join forces to provide a new comprehensive solution for access networks to Wireline Telecom Service Providers and Cable Operators Pune, India / Ipswich, UK, 22nd January 2007 – Tech Mahindra [TechM] together with Evolved Networks today announced a new solution designed to allow operators across the globe to maximise benefits from their greatest assets, the access network, to deliver profitable next-generation services and cost effective network re-generation. Introduction of new services such as IPTV, VoD, demand large amounts of data to be delivered over the antiquated access network. These copper networks were designed to deliver voice, and massive investment is essential to meet this new demand. In order to facilitate this change, they need an accurate picture of their local loop; something few have. Detailed knowledge of where existing access network assets lie, such as duct routes and capacity is vital to the profitable delivery of high quality next generation services. Combining Tech Mahindra’s extensive breadth and experience of delivering global services to operators worldwide with Evolved Networks’ depth of knowledge and expertise of the access network, this unique software solution will allow operators to increase their profitability and improve quality of service, by helping them to efficiently manage their access network. This is a proactive approach taken by both companies in allowing operators to deliver high-quality next generation services efficiently. This relationship will allow Tech Mahindra to expand its services and offer its customers a new proven solution to this longstanding access network issue. Working closely with Tech Mahindra will allow Evolved Networks to rapidly expand its customer base and will support its goal of driving business deep into India, Asia Pacific and American markets.
  2. 2. “Tech Mahindra has been working with leading operators across the globe for the past 18 years and has long been aware of the enormous business problems associated with inaccurate access network data. As the Telecom industry continues to transform, we are proud to be in a position to offer a complete solution to this very real problem,” said CP Gurnani, President – International Operations, Tech Mahindra. “Working with Evolved Networks will enable us to improve and manage operators’ access network data in order to maximise quality of service and minimising profit leakage, which are vital for Operators worldwide.” “Working hand in hand with a company such as Tech Mahindra will enable Evolved Networks to develop a global reach while partnering with a proven, credible and highly experienced delivery partner” commented Eric Gries, CEO of Evolved Networks. “At the same time, Evolved Networks will be supplying Tech Mahindra with the experience and specialized products required to deliver to global customers a complete, scaleable, automated end-to-end solution for their access network data quality and transformation needs”. -Ends- NOTES FOR EDITORS: The Local Loop (also known as an access network) connects an operator’s core network (the national backbone connecting cities and regions) to the end customer. This is essentially the series of wires which run underground and over ground between a local telephone exchange and a customer’s home/business. The problem Tech Mahindra and Evolved Networks solve is the fact that the records (maps and databases) held by operators are between 40% & 60% inaccurate (data ref: Yankee Group – Dirty Data Threatens next generation broadband – 2006). By inaccuracy, we literally mean, the operator may not know where the wire runs, how long it is, which wire is connected to which in a street side cabinet etc. This inaccuracy has a major effect on the efficiency of telecom operations and their ability to deliver quality services. This is the key reason why there are problems and delays today in setting up new broadband customers to the broadband network.
