Deutsche Telekom Outsources Managed Services to Nokia Siemens Networks

Deutsche Telekom awarded a 5-year, managed services contract valued at nearly EUR 300 million to Nokia Siemens Networks. Under the deal, Nokia Siemens Networks will assume control of Vivento Technical Services (VTS) -- a division of Vivento, Deutsche Telekom's personnel service provider.

In addition, Deutsche Telekom has also selected Nokia Siemens Networks to deliver a range of capital expenditure projects for several T Mobile affiliates in Europe, including next-generation IN (Intelligent Network), valued at up to EUR 150 million.

With the addition of VTS, Nokia Siemens Networks has the increased ability to address the multi-vendor maintenance, installation and commissioning services market within Deutsche Telekom and with other customers across Germany.

  • In September 2007, Nokia Siemens Networks was awarded a long-term contract to deliver maintenance services for Juniper Networks E-, M- and T-series routers in the IP backbone and broadband access network of Deutsche Telekom in Germany. The network is monitored around the clock by dedicated service specialists at the Nokia Siemens Network Care Center. Among the services included are ticket handling, incident processing and troubleshooting, software maintenance and service and the exchange and repair of defective network components.
