PARIS -- CIRPACK, a developer of next generation voice switches for operators’ infrastructures, today announced that Atos Worldline, an Atos Origin company, has deployed its carrier-class telephony switches to connect interactive service platforms to the PSTN. This allows Atos Worldline to handle Interactive Voice Response (IVR) services on a very large scale for its European customers (Tier1 GSM operators and large accounts) and prepare for next generation value added voice services. Atos Worldline is also replacing its legacy switches with Cirpack equipment in a move to migrate to next generation network (NGN).

“Outsourcing IVR services on such a large scale is quite complex and requires an industrial approach. To succeed, Atos Worldline must use very reliable and powerful voice switching infrastructures,” explains Jean-Sébastien Anton, Atos Worldline’s Manager of voice architectures. “We had to find a telephony platform that could comply with all the legacy TDM technologies that we and our customers are using, and that could also provide us with a migration path to voice over IP (VoIP). After evaluating several softswitch vendors, we found that Cirpack was the only developer of carrier-grade VoIP softswitch and gateways with field-proven support of all legacy TDM protocols. It is then the only one capable of supporting us in the deployment of our next generation platforms.”
