OPAP and OTE Group strategic partnership for the upgrade of OPAP agencies’ telecommunication infrastructure
OPAP Group (OPAP), the leading Greek betting and lottery operator, has selected OTE Group as its strategic partner for the upgrade of OPAP agencies’ telecommunications infrastructure. This agreement is consistent with OPAP’s 2020 Vision and the Strategic Priorities of “investing in the network”, “leveraging the latest digital and technology capabilities” and “building a world class portfolio of products and services”.
As part of this partnership, OTE Group, partner of choice for the implementation of complex ICT projects, will set up the new network infrastructure for OPAP agencies, which will ensure high levels of network availability, seamless and more effective operation and better quality services.
The new infrastructure, based on the New Generation Network of OTE Group, plays an instrumental role in allowing OPAP to introduce new products and services, such as Play Games (VLTs) and self-service betting terminals (SSBTs); and upgrade the quality and performance of existing products. Moreover, it will allow the company to deliver in the future a richer audio-visual content, among others, thus further improving the customers’ gaming experience.
OPAP Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Damian Cope commenting on this agreement stated:”I am pleased to be announcing our strategic partnership with OTE Group, which is part of our broader plans to invest in our network and upgrade its telecommunications infrastructure. This is an important project for us, as it will lay the technical foundation for the future growth of our company.
