Elmhurst - Lichfield, Staffordshire, United Kingdom, 2012/01/25 - The recent partnership between Netmania IT and the Slovenian teleco giant, Iskratel, has resulted in one of the largest providers of fixed telephony services in Croatia choosing Netmania IT’s low cost, feature rich Auto Configuration Server, ACSLite.
The recent partnership between Netmania IT and the Slovenian telecommunications giant, Iskratel, has resulted in one of the largest providers of fixed telephony services in the Republic of Croatia choosing Netmania IT’s low cost, feature rich Auto Configuration Server to manage the company’s CPE estates.
Leading IT services and solutions provider, Netmania IT, has announced that Optima Telekom, Croatia’s second largest fixed telecom operator, is the latest provider to choose ACSLite in order to manage the company’s device estate for its 275,000 customers.
The deal came about after Netmania IT teamed up with Iskratel, one of the top-ranking providers of state-of-the-art communications solutions with more than 50 years of experience in the telecommunications industry. Commenting on the partnership, Marko Macek, Product Manager at Iskratel says:
“We chose Netmania’s ACSLite device management solution because it fits in perfectly with Iskratel’s projects which involve the sale of our range of customer premises equipment.
“We provide our customers with state-of-the-art CPE products and now that we also offer Netmania’s provisioning and management system in the form of ACSLite, it puts us in a favourable position with potential clients as well as with our existing customers.
“The success we’ve had in winning the new Optima Telekom project has seen our expectations confirmed when it comes to the responsiveness, flexibility and efficiency of the Netmania team.”
Speaking on behalf of Netmania IT, Sales and Marketing Director, Anthony Brown adds:
“We’re delighted to be working with Iskratel. The team are a real pleasure to work with and have an excellent understanding of the TR-069 protocol and the benefits of a TR-069 Auto Configuration Server. They’ve helped us to expand our reach in Europe and subsequently offer ACSLite to one of the biggest telcos in Croatia.
“ACSLite fits in perfectly with Iskratel’s existing product portfolio and we hope that many more of their clients will be able to enjoy the benefits of ACSLite in the future.”
Optima Telekom’s telecommunications network covers more than 100 cities in Croatia. The company prides itself on using the latest technology and global telecommunications solutions to provide efficient and modern services which enable its customers to communicate quickly and efficiently.
“We chose ACSLite after evaluating a number of other platforms and finding it to be the best product at the best price. It’s already improving our provisioning and in-life device management processes and helping us save money in these areas,” explains Tihomir Culjaga, Voice Network Expert and telecommunications Consultant at Optima Telekom.
“We are now bringing more of our existing subscriber devices under management and will shortly be implementing the latest ACSLite upgrade with the customer support console to provide one-click fixes and improved diagnostics to our support helpdesk.”

About Netmania IT & ACSLite
Since the company was founded in 2000, Netmania IT (ACSLite.com / Netmania-IT.com) has established itself as a leading provider of IT services and solutions. The company’s industry-leading expertise in the field of TR-069 comes from working with one of the first providers in the world to adopt the TR-069 CPE WAN Management Protocol which resulted in the company becoming responsible for the management of one of the largest and most active TR-069 device estates in the world.
Netmania IT has subsequently been heavily involved in the Broadband Forum’s TR-069 CPE WAN Management Protocol over the years and has built up a vast amount of knowledge and experience in TR-069 standards, including systems integration; zero-touch provisioning of value-added services; data collection and router diagnostics; integration into self-care portals; firmware upgrades and compliance testing.
After years of experience managing an estate of many millions of devices, the Netmania IT team decided to use this knowledge to create ACSLite - a low-cost, feature-rich Auto Configuration Server which represents the ideal TR-069 device management solution for all service providers, offering advanced device management functionality at a price which even the smallest providers can afford, while offering the scale and flexibility larger ISPs require as they increase their subscribers.
