Ericsson extends global management and hosting

Ericsson said that it is extending its global IT capabilities, increasing its focus on managed services and hosting in the IT domain.

Ericsson said the move comes with the first anniversary of the Global Services Delivery Centre in Bucharest, Romania, which acts as a global competence centre for managing IT environments on behalf of operators.

The company noted that the Systems Integration and Managed Services IT offering means that Ericsson can design, integrate and manage the IT parts of the telecom operator environments - covering the service layer, business support systems and operations support systems, including services such as billing, messaging and content delivery.

The year-old centre in Romania employs highly skilled, multi-lingual graduates, recruited from several universities in Romania.

The main focus is the development and maintenance of solutions and applications with global partners, support and lifecycle management, testing, front and back office operations, project management, and planning and design for global, regional and local customers.
