Swisscom is promising to manage the entire telephony, internet and IT needs of its small business customers as it launched an update to its TV service.
The new Smart ICT package for SMEs features managed internet access and IP telephony services that are run in the cloud.
The operator claimed such businesses would no longer need to worry about maintenance thanks to the offering, as it is guaranteeing “continuous service availability”.
Smart ICT costs from CFH140 per user per month and will be available from early next year.
SMEs will also be able to purchase a Managed Security service, essentially a central firewall, directly from the cloud from Q2 2018.
Finally, they will be able to order and configure managed LAN services and hardware from the cloud by the end of this year.
Swisscom saw revenues from all types of business tick up 0.8 percent to CHF613 million in its most recent quarterly results.
Meanwhile, the operator also rolled out three new services for its TV customers.
A new operating system, Entertainment OS3, will power Swisscom TV and deliver more content and better search functionality.
Dirk Wierzbitzki, Head of Products & Marketing at Swisscom, said: "Every viewer is different.
“Addressing this diversity, we created Entertainment OS3, a user interface you can personalise on Swisscom TV.
“Customers can easily find their favourite programmes out of hundreds of channels, 50,000 Replay programmes, apps, thousands of videos and sport content on demand."
It is accompanied by a new set-top box and Internet Guard – a new security feature that warns customers if they try to access dangerous or fraudulent websites.
Swisscom added 6,000 TV subscribers in the three months to 30 September, meaning its customer base now stands at 1.45 million.
