AMSTERDAM and BONN, Germany, Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Deutsche Telekom International Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS), and VimpelCom Ltd.'s subsidiary in Russia ("OJSC VimpelCom" or "Company") (TM Beeline), today announce that they have established seamless interconnection of their IPX networks.

IPX (Internetwork Packet Exchange) is a next generation network service for the transfer of various IP-based services between operators and different types of service providers (mobile, fixed network, Internet access), both domestically and internationally.

Deutsche Telekom ICSS has been selected as partner for VimpelCom due to the Company's high expertise in this field and the large number of partner contracts and mobile operators' interconnections including, but not limited to, T-Mobile (a part of Deutsche Telekom Group)

"We chose to work with Deutsche Telekom ICSS due to its rich experience in the mobile world in general and in IPX in particular, its large customer base, wide coverage and high quality," says Andrey Azhigirov, Carrier Services and Roaming Director at VimpelCom Russia.

"We are happy to help VimpelCom further optimize their business," said Alexander Vlasov, Head of Key Account Management CEE at Deutsche Telekom ICSS. "VimpelCom's customers profit from a faster Internet connection at home and while roaming and, at the same time, Beeline is able to effectively manage the ever-growing volumes of services and reduce costs."

Thanks to the IPX interconnection with Deutsche Telekom, Beeline has now received the technical ability to connect to other operators faster, thus ensuring Beeline's consumers of worldwide interoperability, reliability, and guaranteed quality of service.
