CANNES, France -- CIRPACK, a developer of next generation voice switches for operators’ infrastructures, today announced that Og Vodafone, the alternative fixed & mobile operator in Iceland, upgraded its wireline voice switching infrastructure with Cirpack MultiNode. Og Vodafone can now provide legacy POTS & ISDN services as well as voice over IP and IP Centrex services from the same switching platform, further optimizing operations and enhancing service packages.

With Cirpack MultiNode, Og Vodafone has the ability to deploy multiservice access networks compliant with the TISPAN architecture, an industry initiative targeting seamless integration of legacy wireline phone services with an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS). Leveraging Cirpack’s open architecture and compliance with IMS standards, Og Vodafone can offer innovative voice over IP services to residential and business customers and now has its networks ready for delivering convergent services including fixed and mobile networks.

“Og Vodafone has been using Cirpack voice switches for several years and we have always been impressed by the flexibility and the reliability of the platform. It matches the Class-5 feature set of legacy systems and scales very easily,” explains Örn Orrason, VP Networks, Og Vodafone. “Upgrading our Cirpack LEN switch to a Cirpack MultiNode allows Og Vodafone to meet the increasing demand for our services and launch innovative packages on a large scale such as voice over IP over DSL and IP Centrex. With the Cirpack switch, we can now think of merging our wireline and wireless networks into an IMS delivering new value added and converged services to all types of users: narrowband, broadband and mobile.”

“Operators around the world are all looking at offering new innovative voice over IP services to their broadband customers. To ensure success of a massive VoIP deployment, operators must deploy next generation voice switching platforms that can really scale and maintain legacy telephony services while share the existing back office and information systems,” explains Jean-Pierre Dumolard, Cirpack’s CEO. “Og Vodafone has been delivering POTS and ISDN services with a Cirpack switch for about 3 years. We are now upgrading the platform for launching VoIP services. Tomorrow, Cirpack will enable both these narrowband and broadband wireline users to be seamlessly integrated into a converged fixed-mobile IMS architecture.”
