Telco Systems Acquires Integral Access

FOXBORO, Mass. -- Telco Systems, a provider of carrier-class transport and access solutions for IP and TDM networks, today announced the acquisition of Integral Access, the developer of the carrier-class PurePacket IP based multi-service access platform for delivery of converged voice and data. The acquisition will enable Telco Systems to make further inroads with next generation network carriers, CLECs (Competitive Local Exchange Carriers), and alternative service providers.

With the PurePacket platform, Telco Systems can also offer an IP managed network migration solution for TDM-based circuit-switched carriers. PurePacket compliments Telco Systems' existing IP product line, which includes solutions for Metro Ethernet Access Rings, Residential and enterprise VoIP, FTTx and WiFi backhaul.

"The acquisition of Integral Access further expands our ability to help next-generation network service providers build out their emerging IP packet networks," said Bob Resinger Chief Operating Officer of Telco Systems.

"Additionally, now we can offer traditional TDM circuit-switched carriers a migration path to a managed IP network infrastructure to deliver integrated business and residential voice and data services." He said: "The acquisition embodies our commitment to integrating circuit and packet- switched technologies onto flexible platforms."

PurePacket is an IP-optimized system for next generation networks that also assists in network migration by supporting a wide range of legacy services. In addition, it can be deployed as an access gateway for softswitch based architectures for VoIP and data services or with Class 5 central office switches. The system can be connected to the service provider's network

using Ethernet based interfaces using L2 or L3 marking as well as TDM based interfaces such as DS1/E1 and DS3. The PurePacket system is designed for in-building, small campus, and co-location/central office-based deployment and service delivery.

Integral Access, headquartered in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, is a privately held company. The PurePacket system is currently deployed in more than 44 major U.S. metropolitan areas and 9 European regions.
