MORRISVILLE, N.C. -- Tekelec (NASDAQ: TKLC), a leading developer of telecommunications products for next-generation fixed, mobile and packet networks, today announced Vortex Broadband Communications has deployed the Tekelec 7000 Class 5 Packet Switch (C5), including a Packet Interface Card (PIC) and the Tekelec 6000 application server, to deliver Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) and IP Centrex services to business and residential customers throughout southern Florida.

The entire Tekelec solution provides the foundation for Vortex Broadband’s all-IP network. The West Palm Beach-based competitive local exchange carrier’s deployment is the first office application of the Tekelec PIC, which provides IP capabilities to Tekelec’s C5 packet switch and enables the delivery of true next-generation services. In addition, Vortex uses the Tekelec 6000 to support its business and residential-class hosted IP telephony services.

“We built our advanced IP network to provide high-speed, reliable voice, data and video services to customers at a fraction of the cost of traditional carriers. We needed a C5 voice network solution that would efficiently and cost-effectively support service delivery and scale to support our expansion into new markets,” said Todd Shepherd, president and founder of Vortex Broadband. “Tekelec delivers a true, next-generation, feature-rich platform with the reliability and scalability to meet our stringent requirements. With Tekelec’s Class 5 switching platform and application server, we can deliver the advanced IP telephony services that our customers demand. This gives us a quick time-to-market advantage over our competition.”
