Ericsson signs Consono MD110 contract with the European Parliament.

STOCKHOLM, Sweden--(BUSINESS WIRE)--October 17, 1996--Ericsson has signed a contract with the European Parliament covering, in an initial phase, the installation of 20,000 Consono MD110 lines in the cities of Brussels, Strasbourg and Luxembourg. The installations will be spread over 1996 and 1997. The frame agreement could cover the needs of the European institutions until the year 2003, today estimated at 100,000 lines.

"Ericsson's Consono MD110 concept will decrease telecommunications costs substantially, and increase efficiency by making new features available to all users in the European Parliament," said Torbj rn Possne, Managing Director of Ericsson's local company in Belgium.

The current contract comprises three main sites (Brussels, Strasbourg and Luxembourg), each equipped with an Ericsson Consono MD110 PBX. It allows to integrate multimedia inter-site communications in one private ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) network via three Consono ISDNX multiplexers. The PBXs are distributed by an optical fibre ring with a capacity of 100 Mb/s. This enables each city to behave as a single telephone exchange, with total transparency of features and a sole database.

An integrated Ericsson voice mail system (Voice 250-i) will also be installed in each of the three sites.

The network administration, based on Windows NT and SQL Server by Microsoft, will be handled through the Ericsson Dynamic Network Administration system, with a centralised database shared by all applications to avoid tiresome updates. An application based on the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and the HP Open View platform administers the alarms and the configuration of the network nodes.

All Ericsson equipment is based on open standards which makes it possible to easily interconnect it with other already installed systems, allowing full compatibility.

Ericsson's 85,000 employees are active in more than 100 countries. Their combined expertise in switching, radio and networking makes Ericsson a world leader in telecommunications.
