We are now seeing our strategy of entering specific emerging markets come to fruition and we have been able to garner real growth as we continue to reduce the internal operating expenses of our customers while enhancing the quality of wireless networks
MCLEAN, Va. (PRWEB) March 3, 2008
TotalView(R) is a unique services delivery platform based on integrating software tools and RF engineering processes to deliver enhanced network services including optimization and benchmarking. Optimization is the process of maximizing the performance of a wireless operator's network to maximize network efficiency and quality of service at a reduced total operating cost. Benchmarking services provide a quantitative and qualitative comparison of the operators' network and end-user experience against other wireless operators to maximize total carrier performance.
In recent weeks, LCC's European region has received contracts for TotalView's Optimization and Benchmarking services. Contracts have been awarded from large operators and equipment manufacturers in Spain, France, and Italy. Spain has been providing its benchmarking expertise to the region since 2004 and is seeing continued renewals of several long standing contracts.
LCC's Emerging Markets region, specifically Pakistan, is realizing continued success in leveraging an integrated services solution. The Company has secured a large managed services contract covering pre and post launch optimization services with Telenor Pakistan (a 100% owned entity of Telenor) and a strategic consulting contract with telecom services provider Mobilink.
"We are now seeing our strategy of entering specific emerging markets come to fruition and we have been able to garner real growth as we continue to reduce the internal operating expenses of our customers while enhancing the quality of wireless networks," said Dean Douglas, LCC President and CEO. "These recent contracts and our expanded presence in Pakistan speaks to the value we bring to our customers as they continue to focus on increased market penetration and reduce customer turnover."
Large contracts for WiMAX design and optimization, 3G/4G benchmarking services and UMTS and GSM network design and optimization services were recently secured within the America's region. These agreements include WiMAX design and optimization services from large North American wireless operators, service providers and equipment manufacturers. Additionally, recent contracts for UMTS/GSM design, optimization and benchmarking were awarded.
"As carriers continue to migrate from a 'make internally' to 'buy externally' decision for obtaining network optimization and benchmarking services, we are pleased to be in the unique position, based on our size and scale, to provide advanced offerings that have real OpEx savings for our customers. Based on the increased adoption of our TotalView(R) services, LCC is well positioned to deliver premium value for our clients around the world and we believe these recent announcements are indicative of our strength in the marketplace," concluded Mr. Douglas.
