Wincor Nixdorf secures E150 million contract from Norddeutsche Landesbank

Dec 21, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Norddeutsche Landesbank, or NORD/LB, has commissioned Wincor Nixdorf to take over central operations management of its IT infrastructure effective July 1, 2013. The contract, with a seven-year term, has a total volume of approximately E150 million.

As an outsourcing partner Wincor Nixdorf will hence be responsible from the middle of 2013 for operating part of the information technology at NORD/LB.

Initially, Wincor Nixdorf will take over operational support of the existing IT infrastructure. It will then subsequently migrate all the central infrastructure components to its own data centers and optimize technologies and IT processes on an ongoing basis to ensure sustainably efficient IT operations.

The services cover the operation of two data centers, 400 server systems and 7,000 workstation systems, providing and updating software and applications for these systems, and operating 200 databases, the network and all communications equipment.

In addition, Wincor Nixdorf will provide a user help desk to deal with queries and problems that can be solved by the user. Wincor Nixdorf will provide the services at its sites in Paderborn, Bonn Hamburg and Prague.

"By commissioning Wincor Nixdorf, NORD/LB will not only achieve more flexibility and a significant reduction in its IT costs as part of its 'more provider strategy', but also optimize its IT architecture in the long term and at the same time take account of technological development," as Richard Arnold, head of IT operations at NORD/LB, explained.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
