Italy's Linkem Selects Amdocs Virtualized Solution for Premium LTE Services

ST. LOUIS, May 7, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amdocs (Nasdaq:DOX), the leading provider of customer experience solutions, today announced that Linkem, an Italian provider of wireless broadband services, has selected an Amdocs virtualized network control solution to support the company's transition from WiMAX to LTE, and provide subscribers with a superior data experience based on differentiated service quality for high-bandwidth content. Already deployed nationwide, Linkem's LTE service delivers faster speeds and improved performance to subscribers while giving Linkem the ability to offer the best combinations of options to its customers.

The pre-integrated, virtualized solution combines Amdocs Policy Controller, an industry-leading policy control (PCRF) solution, with Amdocs Home Subscriber Server for dynamic subscriber management. As a result, Linkem can deliver application-specific quality of service (QoS) to improve subscribers' end-to-end experience with streaming HD video, voice over IP, gaming and other data-intensive multimedia applications.

"Amdocs' virtualized Policy Controller allows us to provide wireless data plans with tiered quality of service, enabling a consistent and optimal user experience in any network condition," said Rino Buccio, chief technology officer at Linkem. "This implementation supports our strategy to launch advanced LTE data services today while laying the groundwork for a full network functions virtualization (NFV) architecture for even greater cost efficiencies and faster time to market for future technology enhancements."

"In The New World of Customer Experience, an era in which customers demand a seamless connection regardless of where they are on the network or which device they are using, service providers need to move towards agile, software-powered networks in order to meet the service velocity demands of their customers and reduce operational costs," said Ann Hatchell, head of network marketing at Amdocs. "Our vendor-neutral, virtualized network control solutions will help Linkem accelerate the rollout of new services, easily scale to meet the demands of data services growth, and shape a differentiated quality of experience for its customers."
