BANGALORE: LogicaCMG has announced that it has been awarded a USD 6 million ( 25 crore) contract to implement a Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA)-based next generation Short Messaging Solution Centre (SMSC) for Tata Teleservices Ltd. (TTL), one of the leading mobile telecoms operators in India.

Tata Teleservices will implement the SMSC to enhance its capability to offer reliable short messaging services (SMS) to subscribers. The company’s growing subscriber base will benefit from the improved quality of service in messaging services, in addition to its existing voice services.

Tata Teleservices selected LogicaCMG’s SMSC as it offers flexible and completely scalable solutions to meet various operating requirements. LogicaCMG’s ongoing technical support offered for TTL’s existing Unified Messaging Solution (UMS), implemented in February 2003, was also an important factor influencing the decision.

S. Ramakrishnan, Managing Director, Tata Teleservices, said, “We are aggressively promoting our services across all our circles in the country under the 'Tata Indicom' brand. Short Messaging Services (SMS) is one of the most popular offerings amongst our customers in the fast-growing and competitive mobile telecommunications market. This implementation will position us to launch new, value-added SMS services that differentiate us from our competitors.”

Kannan Ramaswamy, managing director for LogicaCMG in India and SAARC commented, “The contract with Tata Teleservices is of great significance to us as it strengthens our presence in the CDMA messaging market. Customers in India will enjoy immediate benefits as our partnership with Tata Teleservices takes effect in the coming months. LogicaCMG has a proven track record for delivering critical messaging solutions that deliver significant return on investment for operators, whilst maintaining a quality
end-user experience,” he added.
