A flexible approach is bringing benefits for the UK’s mobile phone users and network operators.
MLL Telecom is a leading provider of secure managed services for both the mobile service providers and the public sector who work with all of the major network operators in the UK. The company is a long-standing user of ATDI’s planning and modelling tools for planning, modelling and managing its microwave networks. Now MLL has added the capability of hired licenses of the software to its existing lifetime licenses.
“There are major advantages to us in hiring licenses,” says Nigel Phillips, microwave design manager at MLL. “It gives us instant capacity when our business suddenly grows or when a new network is being brought online. While we will always keep a certain number of perpetual licenses, hired ones mean we can adapt rapidly to business opportunities and our customers’ needs.”
ATDI UK managing director Gilles Missud adds: “Hired licenses are priced to give maximum value to customers who need that extra capacity right now without having to make a longer-term financial commitment. Because ATDI and MLL have such a long-standing relationship, all of us at ATDI are delighted when MLL’s business suddenly jumps and we are always happy to play our part in helping them fulfil their contracts.”
The partnership between ATDI and MLL extends beyond just software as ATDI engineers have trained MLL staff and provide technical support contract to the company. “It means that when MLL suddenly need new people to use ATDI software to the limits of its capabilities, they are often already competent in the use of our software before new licenses have even been hired,” Gilles says.
