The second phase, completed in April 2009, added Dialogic's CSP hardware to allow interconnection of WDT's ENTICE switch with its Nortel DMS-250 programmable TDM switch
. This part of the project is enabling the operator to reduce costs by transitioning TDM traffic from traditional carriers to IP.
The Versatel switch, with its My Number Internet application, added flexibility to the network that was previously unavailable in Chibardun's TDM switch
. (My Number will also be included in Chibardun's new MetaSwitch.) The Internet application allows the customer to determine some of the features of the phone.
Rolling out sites beyond the first site was at a fraction of the installation costs and hardware costs of traditional TDM switch
deployments, which would place a completely duplicate TDM switch
at each site.
According to the company, the Commatch 6004 access gateway enables operators to provide full voice services and provisioning to WiMAX VoIP customers via the existing legacy TDM switch
. The newly released version 3.2 includes full redundancy, enhancing reliability and eliminating the risk of disruption from a single point of failure.
