DERRY, N.H. -- Cedar Point Communications, the leader in integrated packet-based voice switching technologies for the cable industry, today announced new capabilities of its SAFARI C(Cubed) Multimedia Switching System that will enable cable system operators to deploy Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based multi-vendor advanced voice communication features.

The expanded functionality will enable interoperability between SAFARI C(Cubed) and a wide range of feature servers, allowing cable system operators to leverage such third-party applications as messaging, IVR and call attendant.

"Competition among traditional wireline carriers, third-party VoIP services and cellular providers has created an increasingly cluttered telephony landscape," said Dave Spear, executive vice president, strategy and market development for Cedar Point Communications. "By implementing SIP 'triggers' to support third-party call control, we will allow our customers to provide real differentiators in their service offerings, ranging from day-to- day voice features to fixed-mobile convergence."

"One of cable's voice strengths today is its unique ability to combine both carrier-class PacketCable services that equal or exceed the quality and reliability of incumbent providers and SIP-based features that provide operators and providers with unparalleled flexibility," said Andy Paff, president and CEO of Cedar Point. "As we and the industry move toward an IP Multimedia Sub-system (IMS) architecture in the future, operators will be able not only to implement third party services, but to combine those services to create entirely new offerings. The expansion of SIP capabilities allows us to ease the migration to IMS networks."
