Largest Operator in Thailand Deploys System
on 12-Million Subscriber Network
Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 27, 2003--System integrator Telogic chose
voice platforms from NMS Communications, trusted supplier of communications products
and services, to serve as the heart of its interactive voice response (IVR) system
recently installed in the 12-million subscriber network of AIS, the largest operator
in Thailand. Telogic selected NMS' system building blocks because they provide
the high density and reliability needed for large-scale IVR systems, while being
cost effective. AIS has already deployed several services using the IVR system,
including voice mail for mobile subscribers and various information retrieval
"With a subscriber base of more than
12 million, AIS needs a reliable and scalable system to provide seamless and satisfactory
service to its subscribers. The Telogic IVR system has been operational in our
network for six months now. We are satisfied with the system design, performance,
and cost effectiveness of Telogic IVR system," said Wichian Mektrakarn, AIS'
executive vice president of Network operations.

NMS provides a cost-effective messaging platform that offers unmatched capability
for mixed media types to service a wide range of voice and signaling applications

SS7 is often used as the signaling protocol for voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
gateway applications, wireless infrastructure, and for a wide variety of enhanced
services such as Telogic's IVR solution.
"AIS is a successful
operator that is enjoying rapid subscriber growth, and having a system that can
scale with that growth was crucial to our securing their IVR system business,"
said Low Kim Seng, Telogic's managing director. "NMS's high density telephony
products provide both the cost effectiveness and the high performance that are
essential in meeting AIS's stringent system requirements. The system has the capacity
