Products and systems for mobile services in the fixed telecom network

Unlike most of its competitors, Viking Telecom is a complete supplier of terminals and platforms from its product range. This allows them to quickly introduce new functions or adapt their solutions to customers according to the requirements set by the market.

Viking Telecom’s SMS Server platform (SMSS) (in here) is a flexible hub that ties together SMS in the fixed and mobile networks. The combination of standards offered by Viking Telecom means that different suppliers’ products work with their server platform, while their terminal works with competing server platforms. The server platform also works as an application server for different services.

Router products for voice telephony
Viking Telecom began to develop least cost routers in 1996. On the market, the routers are also called Least Cost Routers (LCR), diallers or Smartbox.

Telecom operators use voice telephony routers to steer end-user trafficcost-effectively. For the end-user, this usually means cheaper calls. Routers can be programmed, for example, to select different operators depending on the destination and time of day, with the purpose of minimising the cost of the call

Their router portfolio has been developed to meet customer demands for functionality, cost-efficiency and the ability to implement value-added services. Today a majority of their router sales involve products where the router technology is built into another product, such as cordless telephones and SMS terminals.

Viking Telecom is currently the largest supplier of router products for voice telephony in Europe, and the company results are clearly shown in the financial portfolio management reports for the fiscal year.
