Keymile established to target multi-service telecoms access market

Nov 1st, 2002

New company Keymile, which launched across Europe last month, says it is aiming to become the “leading player” in multi-service telecommunications access systems for fixed network operators in Europe.

The company’s business strategy is built on helping operators to maximise their return on investment in narrowband and broadband communications. Keymile says that this will be achieved through “cost-effective and technology-independent roll-out of services across the ‘last mile’ of the network to end-users, particularly in the potentially lucrative business segment,” the company claims.

Headquartered in Vienna, Austria Keymile is built on the heritage of several companies experienced in the telecoms access market. The group is the result of the combination earlier this year of two established telecommunications companies, Ascom Transmission AG and Datentechnik AG, which together reported revenues of over EUR150m last year.

The group employs about 650 staff globally with 11 subsidiaries worldwide and has a strong customer base in over 100 countries.

In the UK and Eire, Keymile Ltd provides comprehensive direct sales and support services, with a dedicated training centre at its premises in Hertford.
