Cable Vendors Show Convergence Works

Two tech vendors announced today that they have successfully tested ways to make cable VoIP service mobile in tandem with a third vendor. Both Arris and Cedar Point Communications said they have worked with LongBoard Inc. to demonstrate fixed mobile convergence (FMC) over HFC networks. Arris tested its Touchstone Telephony Modems with LongBoard's Mobility Application Platform (LMAP). Cedar Point tried out its Safari 3 Media Switching System with LMAP. Based on these interoperability tests, both companies said their products will work with LongBoard's open mobile convergence software to enable cable operators to blend VoIP and wireless phone services seamlessly. Both Arris and Cedar Point will show off their respective convergence solutions at the NCTA National Show in San Francisco next week.
