aonInstaller for aonPur (launch: December 2005)
In order to offer aonPur customers a fully automated installation and set-up of their Internet access,
browser and e-mail client, the existing aonInstaller for aonSpeed was graphically adapted and considerably
improved as far as program logistics and usability are concerned. As usual, the user can select between a
standard and custom installation: During custom Internet set-up various software add-ons are offered, such as
aonController, aonFotobuch or aon.tv configurator, as well as the alternative browser Mozilla® Firefox. The new
aonInstaller for aonPur supports any ADSL access types (Ethernet, USB and Wireless) and also includes the
option to choose between single- and multi-user configuration: aonModemconfigurator sets up the modem or router
automatically according to the user's requirements. The following Alcatel ADSL modems are automatically
configured for single- or multi-user operation without requiring manual set-up by the user: Alcatel ADSL 510,
546, 570 and 585. With the help of a clearly arranged, visual modem selection, the connected modem/router
configuration can be carried out anew at any time with just a single mouse click, for example, to set up any
other type of aonSpeed Internet access or when switching from a single- to a multi-user product.
aonInstaller für aonSpeed (relaunch: September 2005)
As part of the relaunch of its ADSL product portfolio, Telekom Austria commissioned mquadr.at to revamp the
Internet setup software m2webalizer. aonInstaller was thus completely
redesigned and equipped with a number of new features to enable simple and user-friendly set-up of any aonSpeed
Internet account. In addition, aonSpeed online registration was integrated within the set-up routine in such a
way that users can surf the Internet via a temporary aonFlash (dial-up) account until the ADSL connection has
been established and the relevant hardware set-up has been completed by Telekom Austria.
As usual, customers can choose between a standard and custom installation: During custom set-up, various
software extras such as aonDialerControl, aonFotobuch or aon.tv configurator can be selected for installation.
Accordingly, Mozilla® Firefox is offered as an alternative to Microsoft® Internet Explorer. As well as the
relevant Internet connection, the selected browser and e-mail client are configured accordingly.
aonInstaller for aonSpeed supports any ADSL access types (Ethernet, USB and Wireless) and offers single and
multi-user installation: Whichever product the user prefers, the modem is always configured automatically by
aonModemconfigurator. With the introduction of a new generation of modems by Telekom Austria,
aonModemconfigurator was enhanced with a series of additional new features, such as the improved modem
selection or switching between single and multi-user mode.
aonModemconfigurator (launch: September 2005)
In line with the launch of the new aonSpeed generation in September 2005, aonModemconfigurator was adapted
to the new Telekom Austria design and equipped with a new, more user-friendly modem selection. In addition,
upgraded versions of Alcatel SpeedTouch modems (SpeedTouch 546(i) and Alcatel SpeedTouch 585(i)) have been
integrated, enabling easy configuration of all current Alcatel ADSL modems supported by Telekom Austria. The
new aonModemconfigurator enables configuration of single and multi-user mode and allows the user to easily
switch between different access technologies. It goes without saying that aonModemconfigurator also includes
mquadr.at's live update functionality, and can thus be easily updated and
extended to include new modems.
During aonSpeed setup, aonModemconfigurator is automatically installed on the user's system so that the
application can also be accessed directly at any later point in time.
aonController for aonSpeed (launch: September 2005)
As from now, the newly revised administration tool aonController for aonSpeed is automatically installed on
the user's system during the set-up of any aonSpeed ADSL account. aonController offers a wide variety of
functionalities for administering all kinds of information as regards broadband Internet access: Details on the
user's system, such as installed devices or software, or information on installed Internet connections can
easily be read out; with the help of integrated functions for printing and saving data this information can
also be archived for later use. webspace.
aonController for aonSpeed includes dedicated wizards, which enable recovery of any standard aonSpeed
Internet connection with just a single mouse click. In addition, aonModemconfigurator can be accessed via
aonController, enabling easy switching between single and multi-user mode. A specific link within the Mailbox
Manager takes users to the aon portal to create and administer new e-mail accounts directly on the server. For
local administration of multiple e-mail accounts or different e-mail clients, aonController for aonSpeed also
offers adequate solutions.
For the first time, the user password is automatically entered within the relevant Microsoft® Outlook
Professional e-mail account, so that the user does not have to authenticate manually when first starting the
program. Various links leading to the aon customer area enable easy Web space set-up, quick product swap within
the Telekom Austria portfolio, as well as efficient access to online statistics and the download area, where
additional software tools, such as aonDialerControl and aonVirenchecker are presented
aonController for aonSpeed is equipped with the ultimate mquadr.at live update functionality, which ensures
the product is always up to date and enables Telekom Austria to effortlessly inform their customers about
innovation and changes within the product portfolio.
aonInstaller for aonFlash (dial-up Internet access) (launch: January 2005)
For the planned relaunch of aonFlash Internet access products, the relevant installation software underwent
a complete redesign. Alongside adjustments to the new corporate design of Telekom Austria, all interfaces were
redesigned in such a way that users can easily keep an overview of the individual installation steps. In its
new, user-friendly and self-explanatory form, users can either set up an Internet account with existing user
data or register online for a completely new aonFlash account. Special attention has been paid to user-specific
requirements during the selection of set-up type: In addition to a standard configuration including the
installation of predefined software, aonInstaller also offers a custom set-up, which enables the selection of
various additional services. During the set-up of their aonFlash account, customers can thus install our
innovative dialer protection software aonDialerControl, the new aonInformer, the clearly arranged
administration software aonController, as well as aonToolbar. Besides actual Internet access, Telekom Austria
customers are thus provided with a comprehensive package of services that perfectly meet the needs of dial-up
aonController for aonFlash (launch: January 2005)
As a substitute for our well-known e-controller (Internet command
centre), aonController is installed automatically on the customer?s system during set-up of an aonFlash
Internet account. Designed in a completely new, concise form, aonController offers a series of functions for
administering essential information and tasks associated with aonFlash. The application includes details on the
user?s system (taken from the device manager and the software manager; list of existing Internet connections),
as well as specially designed wizards for restoring aonFlash standard configuration. Links to the aon customer
area facilitate Web space set-up, and enable customers to quickly switch over to different Telekom Austria
products and create new e-mail accounts. For local set-up of e-mail accounts, a special wizard is integrated
within the Mailbox Manager, which quickly saves new data within the relevant e-mail client. A dedicated area
offers various software bundles for download, for example the aonInformer, which, together with the online
statistics, provides comprehensive information on the remaining online time quota of each aonFlash Internet
account. AonController is also also equipped with the new live update
functionality, which ensures the product is always up to date: Hence, Telekom Austria can guarantee home
delivery of any improvements and changes made to aonInformer
aonInformer for aonFlash (launch: January 2005)
To permanently provide customers with an exact overview of their used and still remaining online time, the
brand-new aonInformer is included in the new aonFlash software package.
When starting Microsoft Windows, aonInformer is activated automatically a clearly arranged user interface
for administration can be easily accessed via a tray icon. The interface offers comprehensive support
information, and provides configuration options that allow the user to set notification intervals or the colour
and transparency of the aonInformer message box, for example. Once a customer begins surfing the Internet via
their aonFlash Internet account, a dedicated aonInformer message box provides regular information on the
already used and still available online time for the current month. In addition, aonInformer is equipped with
the aonUpdate function developed my mquadr.at so that future updates of the application can be automatically
made available to aonFlash customers. As a result, aonInformer helps Telekom Austria customers keep a check on
their time credits and guarantees online time settlement to the second.
aonUpdate (launch: January 2005)
Together with the redesign of the complete aon product portfolio, mquadr.at's new product development
aonUpdate was incorporated into all new Telekom Austria applications. As from now, aonController, as well as
aonInformer, aonDialerControl and aonUpdate itself can be updated at any time. As soon as one of the
above-mentioned applications is up and running, aonUpdate automatically checks the server for existing updates
to any installed Telekom Austria application. Users can easily select the required updates and download them
with just a single mouse click.
The advantages of aonUpdate are obvious: If any of the installed applications is altered in any specific way
or additional features are added, the new developments can be easily and quickly provided to customers. With
upgrades to existing software versions available at the push of a button, users no longer have to install a
completely new application, resulting in reduced response times, improved customer service and products that
are always up to date. aonUpdate has the unique quality of updating a range of installed programs within a
single application and therefore represents a valuable enhancement to the overall aon product portfolio.
aonVirenchecker (relaunch: September 2004)
The adjustment of all Internet products to Telekom Austria?s new corporate design also necessitated a
redesign of the aonVirenchecker installation software. For it to blend in with the overall product portfolio,
the set-up routine was optimised in such a way that users are informed at all times about each individual
installation step. User interfaces are arranged more clearly and the support information provided within the
application is now more easily accessible. In addition, the installation process of AonVirenchecker has been
improved so that the set-up can be completed even faster and more efficiently.
aonDialerControl (relaunch: September 2004)
aonDialerControl was developed by mquadr.at as a protection suite against unwanted, expensive Internet
With the help of aonDialerControl, connections present on the user's PC can either be placed on a whitelist
(for authorised connections only) or alternatively they can be blacklisted (for connections that must not be
used for dialling into the Internet). In addition, aonDialerControl is equipped with an alert function: The
set-up of new connections is monitored and a warning is issued if diallers attempt to install themselves onto
the customer's system. Any dial-up attempts arising from blacklisted diallers are stopped. Various additional
functionalities such as dial-in documentation via dialler-log, easy inspection of all connections on the PC,
quick delete functions for erasing unwanted connections, etc., offer consistent protection against expensive
dial-in numbers. aonDialerControl is offered free of charge to all Telekom Austria customers at kundenbereich.aon.at
aonSpeed with automatic ADSL modem configuration
In the course of introducing new ADSL hardware to the Austrian Internet market, Telekom Austria released a
new edition of its AonSpeed products (broadband Internet access based on ADSL). For this purpose, mquadr.at was
commissioned to redevelop the whole range of AonSpeed set-up software. In connection with the automatic,
country-specific configuration of ADSL modems (modem set-up), the latest version of m2webcenter was deployed, which, in combination with m2webalizer, performs the complete set-up and configuration of Telekom Austria's
ADSL Internet access products.
Supported access technologies:
- ADSL based on Ethernet and USB
- ADSL wireless
In co-operation with Telekom Austria and Alcatel Austria (SpeedTouch Series).
aonFlash (dial-in Internet access)
For the new edition of AonFlash Internet access software, the Web-based AonFlash online registration was
incorporated into the fully automated Internet set-up software m2webalizer. During the set-up of AonFlash, the
user can easily register his/her access product, install it, and at the same time have the relevant settings
implemented on his/her PC.
A special feature is the integrated recovery function (backup), which can be used by existing AonFlash
customers to easily reset their Internet account or set it up on another system.
As part of the co-operation between Telekom Austria and IKARUS Software, the Austrian market leader for
virus protection software, mquadr.at designed new, superimposed set-up software for IKARUS Virus Utilities.
This newly developed program forms an inherent part of Telekom Austria?s AonVirenchecker product and enables
correct set-up and configuration on any client system.
- Development and programming of new AonVirenchecker set-up software which automatically sets up and
configures IKARUS Virus Utilities on all Microsoft ® operating systems.

System configuration for aon.tv
To benefit from the comprehensive range of video on demand services at www.aon.tv. Telekom Austria, customers need to adjust specific settings on their PC.
Thus, mquadr.at was commissioned to design an application that provides support, ranging from system checks and
analysis, to automatic configuration of the customer's system and download or installation of missing
components. In order to carry out the required configuration, an initial system check is required. Based on
that information, all settings relevant for video on demand are configured automatically. This change in
settings affects Media Player (rendering functions, updates, streaming protocols, proxy settings) on the one
hand, and Microsoft® Internet Explorer on the other. If certain components are missing on the user's PC, aon.tv
configuration software takes care of automatic download and installation support.
aon.tv configuration software is offered to Telekom_Austria customers at www.aon.at and within AonSpeed installation software, designed by mquadr.at
Since Telekom Austria requires changing dial-in numbers for AonPuls, AonEconomy, AonClassic and AonComplete,
mquadr.at was commissioned to create an application that enables users to convert the respective number as
quickly and as easily as possible. By means of a specific numbering system, the migration software identifies
relevant dial-in numbers on the customer's system and with a single mouse click replaces all the numbers that
will not be available in future. All other dial-in parameters remain unchanged. Since any future dial-in
attempts are carried out via the new number, Telekom Austria customers are not affected by the planned
deactivation of obsolete numbers.
The migration software developed by mquadr.at is available as a download and as a Web application at
For future co-operation with PC manufacturers and distributors, the new preloading software AonInternet was
created, which enables customers to quickly and easily register and set up AonSpeed (ADSL) or AonFlash
(Dial-in) Internet access.
After having successfully completed AonFlash online registration, users can set up and configure their
Internet connection and immediately start surfing the Internet. For the broadband products offered by Telekom
Austria, an online sign-up area is included: After all relevant access data has been sent to the customer and
all required technical infrastructure has been established, AonInternet enables users to easily configure their
ADSL Internet access with just a few mouse clicks.
AonInternet is continuously in use as part of Telekom Austria's cooperation with partners such as Hofer or
Computer Tischler and many more.
AonSpeed Netgaming - Xbox Live Bundle and Playstation 2 Bundle
In order to offer its customers the ultimate online gaming experience, Telekom Austria created AonSpeed
Netgaming, a bundle combining the broadband product AonSpeed with Xbox or Playstation 2. In addition to the
configuration of ADSL modems, mquadr.at also adapted the settings that are automatically made on the user's PC
in the course of setting up AonSpeed. Once again the project was carried out to the utmost satisfaction of
Further information can be found at: www.aon.at/netgaming
As part of planned co-operation between Telekom Austria and renowned PC suppliers all over Austria,
mquadr.at was commissioned to develop the AonFlash Preload product. Personal computers sold by Media Markt,
Saturn, Cosmos Köck, Niedermeyer, Hartlauer, Vobitech, Medion, Conrad, Quelle, MS Internet and Gericom were
equipped with the new m2webconfigurator software for quick and trouble-free
access to the Internet.
Enabling Broadband Tool (research project)
The research co-operation "Enabling Broadband" undertaken by Telekom Austria and the consulting agency
Leupold & Leupold focused on researching new methods and processes for market-oriented development of new
technologies, which consequently should be implemented in Telekom Austria's process and project management. The
main focus was the fast-growing broadband Internet market segment and its relevant consumer products.
For the exemplification and illustration of the theses posted in this project, which take the form of
executable prototypes, mquadr.at was included in the research team as software developers with many years of
experience. Some of the planned prototypes have already been put into practice.
