QSC AG, through its subsidiaries, provides integrated telecommunication and managed services for business, wholesale/resellers, and residential customers in Germany. It offers broadband communication, including leased lines in various bandwidths, and voice and data services. QSC AG also configures and operates IP-VPN networks, as well as provides a range of network-related services. Segments The company conducts its operations through three segments, including Managed Services, Products, and Wholesale/Resellers. Managed Services This segment develops and operates telecommunications solutions for large and medium-size enterprises, and markets them directly through its own key account management organization. The foundation for these Managed Services consists of IP-based virtual private networks that are typically operated by QSC. Building upon these IP-VPN, QSC offers various additional services, such as the operation of software-based telephone systems (IP-Centrex), as well as maintenance of local area networks and end-user devices. Products With products from QSC, small and medium-size companies, as well as freelance professionals and independent contractors, can operate all of their voice and data communications over one and the same broadband line. The spectrum of offerings includes broadband Internet connections, direct connections to the QSC voice network, as well as Voice over IP products. Wholesale/Resellers The Wholesale/Resellers segment includes business with Internet service providers and telecommunications providers without proprietary infrastructure. Internet service providers and international carriers, as well as national telecommunications providers who do not possess infrastructures of their own, market DSL lines from QSC and the value-added services that build upon them under their own name and for their own account. QSC supplies unbundled DSL preliminaries and assures smooth order management with the individual directly-supported customers via highly scalable interfaces. This business unit also includes QSC's wholesale voice business, which makes voice telephony services available to resellers who do not possess a corresponding nationwide infra- structure of their own. Competition The company's competitors include Deutsche Telekom, BT and Arcor/Vodafone. Ex-monopolist Deutsche Telekom is the company's main competitor in the Products segment, as well, along with Arcor/Vodafone, Versatel and city carriers like M-net and NetCologne. History QSC AG was founded in 1997.
