WIND Hellas completes Mobile Packet Core network

WIND Hellas has announced the completion of a one-year transformation and network evolution project aimed at reorganizing and modernizing its Mobile Packet Core.

The installation of a modern multi-access Evolved Packet Core network – including Ericsson’s Evolved Packet Gateway based on the latest SSR 8000 family together with the world-leading SGSN-MME and Service-Aware Policy Controller – has been a major factor in this process.

With its consulting and systems integration capabilities, Ericsson has had the responsibility of being prime integrator, allowing WIND Hellas’ subscribers to benefit from advanced mobile broadband offerings.

As part of the transformation, legacy packet network systems have been successfully replaced and all subscribers migrated to a single multifunctional platform suite. The multifunctional platform suite can stream all related business operations and processes.

The Evolved Packet Core solution enables WIND Hellas to offer new services, enhancing users’ experience and at the same time significantly simplifying operations and lowering costs.

Nikos Babalis, CNO, WIND Hellas said, “The successful deployment of the Ericsson Evolved Packet Core solution marks another significant milestone in our commitment to remain at the forefront of telecommunications services in the Greek market – with continuous and long-term investments in our network infrastructure. Ericsson, a long-time partner in our network and services evolution, has proved its leading capabilities in Mobile Packet Core and systems integration.”

Maurizio De Dominicis, vice president and head, Ericsson in South Eastern Europe said, “In projects such as these, we see the benefit of the combination of our strength in both services and technology. These are complex projects since they require the seamless transfer of existing subscribers and services to a completely new system, with extensive systems integration according to each customer’s needs and network.”
