The modular architecture of Utimaco LIMS™ facilitates fast and cost-effective deployment of legal interception in virtually any telecom network. The Utimaco Lawful Interception Management System can grow with your network, as new services and technologies can easily be added through software upgrades. Capacity and throughput can also be gradually extended by adding hardware.
Telecom operators can either install and operate the LIMS system as part of their own Operations Support System (OSS), or they can engage an independent LI service provider for a hosted model.
By centralizing and automating the administration of intercepts, Utimaco LIMS™ lowers the total cost of ownership of lawful interception.
