Pan-Net, the joint pan-European network of Deutsche Telekom, represents a truly revolutionary cross-border and cloud-based telecommunication production of the future. It moves the production logic from legacy hardware platforms into the virtual environment which is based on IP, Software-Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization.
Pan-Net will enable Deutsche Telekom to leverage synergies for superior service quality and best customer experience. Respective national operators of Deutsche Telekom Group in Europe and their customers will also benefit from faster time to market for new innovative services. This innovative structure will enable Deutsche Telekom to offer newly developed services throughout Europe within just a few days.
The essence of Pan-Net is to consolidate the national production platforms into one lean and highly agile infrastructure cloud - distributed across several data centers in Europe. It will offer a fully modular but harmonized service catalogue, offering choice from a standardized set of service elements. National companies can compile and bundle these elements with local flavors or even third-party components.
Deutsche Telekom Pan-Net, s.r.o.
Deutsche Telekom Pan-Net, s.r.o. is an international company founded and based in Bratislava, Slovakia. It designs, operates and steers the joint pan-European network ("Pan-Net") of Deutsche Telekom and is a member of the Deutsche Telekom Group.
The company is an ambitious and courageous pioneer in transforming the whole telecommunication industry by setting up completely new rules of production logic proving that synergies in the Telco business can go much further. It has been established by Deutsche Telekom in 2015 as the new division with end-to-end responsibility for creating and delivering services for the national operators of Deutsche Telekom Group in Europe.
Pan-European network takes shape
Deutsche Telekom is the only operator in Europe already building a network architecture which will enable the use of a single standardized infrastructure across national borders. Instead of developing and producing similar services and products separately in all its national subsidiaries, the company has decided to integrate the production infrastructure to one pan-European infrastructure cloud.
Pan-Net local entities have been set up across Europe hosting the pan-European network. In 2016 the first backend data center was established in Budapest, Hungary and the first Service Operation Center has been set up in Bucharest, Romania. In 2017 the second backend data center was established in Warsaw, Poland. First services (e.g. messaging, VoLTE or e-mail) have already been produced in Pan-Net and being delivered to several national operators.
