Hutchison 3G tabs Volantis
Hutchison 3G is looking to deliver multi-channel capability within its service delivery platform, and is turning to Volantis Systems Ltd. to make it happen.
Volantis' Mariner software is designed to provide support for wireless and broadband devices. Hutchison 3G intends to use the software to manage the introduction, packaging and delivery of dynamic content. Hutchison 3G chose the Volantis product for its scalability and flexibility, says Colin Tucker, managing director of Hutchison 3G. Financial terms were not disclosed.
The software initially will be deployed in the United Kingdom, with future plans to make the software available in every country where Hutchison Whampoa has 3G interests.
Hutchison Whampoa holds a 65 percent stake in Hutchison 3G. NTT DoCoMo and KPN Mobile also hold stakes, 20 percent and 15 percent respectively.
Hutchison 3G won a third-generation license from the U.K. government in May 2000.
