VimpelCom deploys Openmind mobile messaging platform

17 April 2015 |

Russia’s VimpelCom has extended the deployment of Openmind Network’s Traffic Control Mobile Messaging platform.

Openmind Networks collaborated with local Russian partner Lanit for the platform, which is designed to enable VimpelCom to support SMS traffic in central Russia during both peak and non-peak periods.

Openmind’s Traffic Control Platform has been very impressive in generating efficiencies across our network,” said Andrey Klimov, head of service network development department at VimpelCom.

“The new high-performance and very flexible SMS infrastructure from Openmind allows us to implement new services much faster and more cost effectively. We look forward to further expanding our relationship with Openmind and Lanit in the future.”

VimpelCom has a subscriber base of 57.2 million across nine different time zones, and Alex Duncan, CEO at Openmind, said the operator was a key customer for Openmind.

“They are at the top level of usage for our platform both in terms of volume and geographic spread,” Duncan said.

“This deployment underlines the robustness and scalability of Openmind’s technology – which delivers tens of thousands of messages every second for VimpelCom.”
