Digital Communications Services (DCS) has selected and installed a REDCOM High Density Exchange (HDX) softswitch at Grandview Mutual Telephone Company in Paris, Illinois, replacing a legacy Mitel (News - Alert) GX5000 Class 5 switch.
Officials with REDCOMLaboratories said that the HDX is a powerful, next-generation Class 4/5 softswitch that works as a cost-effective adjunct/overlay on an existing network.
Company officials said that HDX , which is based on REDCOM’s (News - Alert) patented distributed architecture, minimizes the risk of single point failures as it distributes resources system-wide and network-wide, using multiple points of direct access.
“DCS provided Grandview Mutual Telephone Company with a full turnkey solution to replace their obsolete Mitel GX5000 Class 5 switch and CDR Collection System,” said Ted Snedeker, president of DCS, in a statement.
Snedeker said that the REDCOM HDX positions Grandview Mutual to provide next-gen services that today’s and future customers require.
According to company officials, REDCOM’s Maintenance Administration and User Interface (MAUI) provides Grandview Mutual Telephone with an intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) that simplifies the configuration and maintenance of their new HDX softswitch.
With MAUI, the company now has a user-friendly graphical overview of their entire telecommunications system.
