To date, our European national companies have operated their own infrastructures and developed their services independently. However, the switch to IP technology – to be largely completed by 2018 - will make it possible to develop new services together and share them across borders. We hope to tap into this potential by creating a pan-European network.
Individual services such as text messages, voicemails and e-mails will be made available to all countries in the pan-European network as "product building blocks." Our Pan-Net cloud will serve as the basis for this. Every national company can then use the building blocks to create an offer that suits their local market and customer requirements. We can also use this technology to offer new solutions throughout Europe within just a few days.
The Pan-Net cloud is an association of data centers distributed throughout Europe. After we started up operations in the first of these data centers in Hungary in 2016, another center followed in Poland in 2017. Greece should be added to this list at the end of 2018. We founded a new company for management and control of the new infrastructure in 2015: Deutsche Telekom Pan-Net, headquartered in Slovakia.
