NEW DELHI, India -- Veraz Networks announced that its carrier-grade packet telephony platforms have been awarded certification by the Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC), the standards-setting agency of the Indian government's Department of Telecommunications. Veraz won interface approval for its ControlSwitch softswitch and I-Gate 4000 media gateway platforms after completing the TEC certification tests, demonstrating the products' ability to interwork with the incumbent carrier's network from both the signaling and bearer traffic perspective. "Achieving TEC certification is a major milestone for deployment-readiness in the Indian telecom market," stated Amit Chawla, Executive VP of Global Marketing, Veraz Networks. "This certification further validates Veraz's commitment to deliver integrated, carrier-grade solutions that meet the needs of Indian and global telecom service providers." In the rapidly growing Indian telecom market, both new and existing carriers are seriously considering the deployment of next-generation telephony networks. Carriers deploying such new technology face the challenge of interoperating with existing signaling and transport networks. With TEC approval, Veraz now offers complete next-generation solutions that are ready for deployment in the Indian market and can enhance the competitiveness of both greenfield and established carriers. Veraz's standards-based packet telephony platforms allow carriers to deploy customized solutions that satisfy their specific network needs, either with a best-in-class integrated solution or with best-of-breed individual products. Using the Veraz softswitch and media gateway, carriers can quickly enter new markets and rapidly ramp up services to generate revenue. "Our softswitch and media gateway successfully passed the certification tests on the first attempt, which is a testament to the engineering excellence of our products and their readiness for India and other international markets," said Vijay Nadkarni, VP of Engineering - Softswitch, Veraz Networks. "Approval from the TEC is excellent proof that our platforms can readily support the Class 4, Class 5 and new voice-data service requirements of Indian carriers." Veraz Networks
