EE is the UK's most advanced digital communications company, with superfast 4G mobile and fibre broadband services and has been an existing client of Metron for some time.
EE has renewed its licence for athene® to enable the software to be deployed across new and legacy Data Centers in its Core Networks Division.
Emmanuel Amachaghi, Core Network Designer at EE commented ‘We are pleased to continue our relationship with Metron and are happy that athene® provides us with the ability to manage our capacity effectively’
EE is satisfied that athene® can meet its needs and the introduction of Integrator in athene® played a big part in its selection. Integrator enables EE to bring HP EVA SAN data extracted from HP’s EVAperf software and processed via Metron’s HP EVA Capture pack into its capacity management mix, offering visibility of storage array performance statistics.
EE, the UK’s most advanced digital communications company, is the first in Britain to offer superfast 4G mobile services alongside fibre broadband. We run the EE, Orange and T-Mobile brands, giving our 27 million customers the best network and the best service.
We are building the best mobile network by investing £1.5bn over three years to rollout superfast 4G mobile services across the UK. We plan to cover 27 towns and cities, and extending to a further 15 across the country by March 2013. We’ll reach 98% of the UK population by the end of 2014. This builds on our £15 billion investment since 2000 building Britain’s biggest 3G mobile network. Our fixed fibre broadband service reached 11 million households and businesses by the end of 2012.
We aim to deliver the UK’s best service, through our websites and apps, over the phone and in-store. We have over 11,000 customer service and retail employees who are trained experts in mobile device operating systems. Every year, our service centres teams have over 86 million conversations with our customers. More than 40 million customers come through the doors of our more than 700 retail stores. We have over 35 million visits per month to our websites.
