Slovak Telekom completes all-IP migration

22 Dec 2014

Slovak Telekom (ST), which is part of the Deutsche Telekom (DT) group, has completed its transition to an all-IP network, with all fixed services now offered via an IP platform. The migration took more than two years, the telco says, with the main all-IP benefits being the cost savings associated with a more streamlined and efficient infrastructure, plus the increased potential for broadband services. The upgrade process involved removing 25% of various access and transmission technologies, and more than 33% of network elements from ST’s premises. Earlier this year, DT enabled Macedonia to become the first country to switch fully from the PSTN to an all-IP network.
