took a step into the carrier VoIP space at the Mobile World Congress (News
) tradeshow and conference in Barcelona to discuss
the latest success, trends and solutions behind Nortel’s (News
) carrier VoIP leadership in hosted IP communications for large enterprises and SMBs.
According to Nortel, the company’s ability to bring extraordinary gains in network deployment coverage, capacity and reliability to service provider networks has been well proven through its shipment of more than 121 million carrier VoIP and multimedia ports, including more than 10 million SIP lines to leading wireline and wireless carriers globally.
The company demonstrated its 4G mobile VoIP solutions in the show.
Officials said that they even plan to implement the first large scale 4G VoIP network with voice continuity between mobile broadband VoIP and legacy cellular voice, which fit any type of service provider -- wireless, fixed or MVNO.
The company’s hosted IP communications product for large enterprises and SMBs was part of the discussion, which helps to improve business productivity and allow service providers to offer advanced services across legacy TDM, hosted VoIP, PBX (News
) and mobile smartphone devices.
Apart from these solutions, Nortel showcased its Class 5 VoIP Solutions and IP Multimedia Interconnect Solutions that improves voice quality and security.
With Class 5 VoIP, solutions carriers can take advantage of TDM network modernization, IP overlay, IMS applications and wireless convergence services and can also save and generate additional revenues from new applications and web services.
Also, Nortel’s recently announced hardware platform, called the CS 2000a
, boosts service providers’ capacity in a smaller footprint, and can provide up to a 70 percent reduction in footprint and a 50 percent power savings compared to currently available platform options, said the company.
Samih Elhage, president, Nortel CVAS, and other CVAS executives were present in the Mobile World Congress show to provide an update on Nortel’s CVAS divestiture process.
