Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise solutions deliver streamlined communications network architecture for EYDAP in Greece
Paris, France, 22 December 2021 – Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, a leading provider of communications, cloud and networking solutions tailored to customers’ industries, was selected by the Athens Water Supply and Sewerage Company (EYDAP) to upgrade its network while simplifying the architecture.
Since the telephony system was first deployed in 2001, EYDAP has grown exponentially and faced many new technological demands. By 2020, the company was managing a highly dispersed communications system, consisting of thirty stand-alone subsystems at an equal number of locations. To improve the user and operator experience and to move towards digital transformation, EYDAP was looking for a solution to upgrade its system and simplify the architecture. The global health crisis further highlighted the need for flexible and secure communications to ensure business continuity. According to Effie Nestorides, Executive Director of Digital Governance at EYDAP, this project is part of the company’s long-term vision.
The robust state-of-the-art solution, proposed by Cloud-U Telecoms, an Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Business Partner in Athens, is based on the Alcatel-Lucent OmniPCX® Enterprise Communication Server and the RainbowTM by Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise platform. It is flexible enough to allow easy user and application management, while delivering full user-friendly access to Unified Communications services for customers and employees at any time and any place. “The solution’s open architecture offers flexibility to support EYDAP’s existing infrastructure,” says Astrid Savorani, VP Sales Europe South at Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise. “More importantly, it is future-ready for upgrade and expansion. The solution will accompany EYDAP as the company continues to grow and expand, enabling communications every step of the way.”
“As an Alcatel Lucent Enterprise valued Business Partner, Cloud-U Telecoms and all of its team members are very proud of the successful implementation of this complex and challenging project that will allow EYDAP to enter the Digital Age of Communication”, says Michalis Kintzios CEO at Cloud- U Telecoms.
