North American independent cable provider, Armstrong Cable will deploy a Sonus Class 4 VoIP core for a significant network migration project.
The cable provider wanted a vendor that could help it build an SIP core for its telecom network. The Sonus solution will provide IP trunking and add session border control capabilities to enable VoIP Peering.
By leveraging the new SIP core, Armstrong will be able to develop a longer-term strategy to migrate their telephony network to IMS and PacketCable 2.0. In order to make this strategic change to their Class 4 VoIP network, Armstrong used the Sonus NBS-9000 Network Border Switch for session border control and media transcoding, the GSX 9000 High-Density Media Gateway, and the PSX Centralized Routing and Policy Server.
In a press release, Mike Giobbi, CTO of Armstrong, commented that they chose Sonus Networks as they searched for a solution from a single vendor that could provide immediate economic benefits and enable their infrastructure to deliver new voice services to their customers in the coming years.
“Armstrong wanted to migrate to PacketCable 2.0 while leveraging a common management platform,” said Giobbi while adding that Sonus has the technology and stability required to move its business forward.
"Leading cable providers like Armstrong are advancing their telecom networks to embrace SIP and IMS so they can lower the cost of serving their growing customer bases," commented Guru Pai, chief operating officer at Sonus Networks. "Sonus products deliver a compelling ROI and enhance both the core infrastructure and the customer experience for our cable provider customers worldwide," Pai continued.
