Swisscom Solutions AG is updating the Swiss Post's telephone system: over the next five years, traditional telephone equipment will be replaced by IP phone systems. Swiss Post employees will then be able to make calls over the data network. The order volume will be around CHF 12 million a year.
IP telephony means making telephone calls via a computer network based on the Internet protocol. Data and voice traffic are transmitted via the same network.
This new and innovative partnership model is based on many years of cooperation. Both Swisscom Solutions and Swiss Post will be contributing their know-how to the project in order to achieve the greatest possible common benefit and to put an open platform in operation for Swiss Post.
