With support from Azure for Operators, Deutsche Telekom has now reached a major milestone in its NIMS (Next Generation IP Multimedia Subsystem) project. Over ten million voice subscribers have now been successfully migrated to the company's new IP-based voice telephony platform, which is fully automated.
The NIMS project, which began with the goal of "cloudifying" and automating the core of Deutsche Telekom's voice network, has now also processed billions of voice minutes through the new platform, with around 100 interconnect partners.
One of the key innovations of the NIMS project is its end-to-end automation. By building a detailed framework of automated workflows across every function of the network, the NIMS platform allows Deutsche Telekom to create, test, and launch new services quickly and with great agility for its customers. This level of automation is highly unusual in the industry and has set a new standard for other service providers to follow.
To achieve this, Deutsche Telekom created an innovative and highly collaborative multi-vendor ecosystem, including Microsoft, Juniper Networks, Mavenir, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Lenovo, and Red Hat. The platform is designed to be easily scalable and adaptable as the demand for services grows.
