International Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS)

By T-Systems

International Carrier Services was established in 1996 and became International Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS) in March 2003, with the responsibility of selling international wholesale solutions to carriers. ICSS belongs to the division Telecommunication Services (TC Services) which is part of T-Systems Management Board.

Core Business
T-Systems offers international carriers' carrier (or wholesale) solutions via T-Systems International’s Telekom Global Net to fixed and mobile carriers, ISPs and ASPs as well as incumbent and alternative carriers. Overall, T-Systems works with almost 900 major international carriers in 192 countries, providing Voice, IP/Data, and Bandwidth solutions.

Products and Services – In Line with the Market
The T-Systems ICSS product portfolio is in line with market demands and is being extended continuously. We maintain one of the most extensive carrier networks, with an international network platform offering public voice services with up to 60,000 LAD and bandwidth from 155 Mbps to 80 Gbps for IP and bandwidth as well as the basis for a Multi Service Platform. All products and services are supported with a 24/7 hotline and "follow-the-sun" network management centers. The extensive product portfolio is divided into four groups: Voice, IP/Data, Customized Solutions and Bandwidth.

  • Voice
  • Customers for voice products and services are traditional bilateral partners or emerging carriers who are interested in having T-Systems ICSS establish or extend their already existing network using the Telekom Global Net. T-Systems ICSS offers Voice over IP carrier solutions that are of particular interest for carriers in countries where the telecommunications market still is monopolized or recently liberalized.
  • Internet Protocol (IP)
  • T-Systems ICSS offers two global IP solutions: GRX and IP Transit. T-Systems ICSS now links almost all GPRS mobile operators world-wide, over 80. IP Transit is professional Internet access for international carriers and Internet Service Providers (ISPs). This high-quality access to the IP backbone enables them to benefit from global or regional coverage without having the cost and effort of building and maintaining it. ICSS makes use of the world’s largest IP network (15 Terrabit).
  • Customized Solutions
  • In an increasingly competitive global telecommunications market, the most effective way of reducing costs and regaining profitability is to concentrate on future core competencies, with non-core tasks outsourced to specialized suppliers. Drawing on the experience and knowledge of the Deutsche Telekom Group, T-Systems ICSS offers customized solutions in the areas of operator outsourcing and carrier designed networks.
  • Bandwidth
Telecommunications carriers and ISP's can gain seamless connectivity to broadband capacity on the Telekom Global Network which offers custom bandwidth solutions ranging from city-to-city connections to complex and channelized networks. These solutions also include traditional bandwidth services such as Submarine Cable Capacity or Dedicated Transit. Additional services include backbone wavelength connections and housing services. Our self-healing SDH-backbone and WDM-rings provide connections from 2 Mbps to 10 Gbps in 17 countries worldwide. Traffic is delivered either to our closest Point of Presence or to your location.

Telekom Global Net – A Network of Infinite Possibilities
The Telekom Global Net is a highly extended and sophisticated network with an ultra-modern infrastructure. It connects major international business centers via Points of Presence (PoP), over an optical fiber network extending more than 150,000 kilometers. Through this network operators can access T-Systems International’s global backbone network from their own country.

As T-Systems International continues building the worldwide network infrastructure, it will be able to offer worldwide network coverage.
