T-Systems’ first Galileo project involved designing systems for logistics engineering and management and providing ground-based support for the creation of the European space infrastructure for satellite navigation. Galileo has two control centers in Italy and Germany, plus numerous sites around the globe – and these must be able to communicate with each other around the clock. This is why T-Systems experts continuously enhance the infrastructure and IT systems by carrying out updates and installing patches. In addition, the Deutsche Telekom subsidiary provisions electronic components, software modules, computer hardware and state-of-the-art receiver systems. What’s more, T-Systems monitors Galileo’s global infrastructure, and operates several siloed networks. T-Systems is also responsible for testing and evaluating new network components, and implementing redundancy concepts to increase availability.
European Union institutions
European countries are growing closer together, and today, public-sector and government organizations collaborate across borders. However, they often leverage incompatible ICT systems and applications, sometimes based on highly heterogeneous technologies. This is where Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) comes in. It does not modify the applications themselves. Instead, it uses adapters to make information stored in these systems available for users leveraging different applications. Interface Manager, T-Systems’ EAI solution, is tailored to the unique needs of the public sector. It supports key e-government standards thanks to special adapters and modules.
Lotteries and gaming operators
Secure network integration of all sites and seamless system operations: for lottery operators, these are not just nice-to-haves – they are absolutely critical for success. T-Systems offers an end-to-end portfolio of services for lottery operators and other companies in the gaming sector, such as solutions for managing sites and shops, provision of customer information, addiction prevention, reporting, and portals.
Public-sector television and radio broadcasters
To be successful, public-sector television and radio stations must be able to transmit data and signals without interruptions and with minimal delays. Seamless interaction among various vendors’ components is crucial for achieving this. This is why a project group comprising hardware and software vendors, spearheaded by T-Systems, tested interoperability of German radio and television broadcasters’ networks. During this project, T-Systems’ WAN handled data from various operators’ clouds. Germany’s Broadcast Technology Institute (IRT) was responsible for development, monitoring and the validation of laboratory and field-testing results.
