Munich, March 15th 2007 - Telenor, one of Europe´s leading carriers, has launched Telenor's Ring Back Tone Service Ventetoner based on the technology of the European Computer Telecoms Group (ECT). From a shared central installation in Norway, the platform is enabled for eventual operations in other countries at a later stage. ECT has provided similar multi-country implementations in a number of important projects, addressing the typical double pressure on carriers to cut costs while at the same time introducing new and innovative services.
