Tekelec (Booth 704) announced two CLECs Burlington Telecom and Crocker Telecommunications LLC have deployed the Tekelec 7000 Class 5 Packet Switch and Tekelec 6000 VoIP Application Server to deliver revenue-generating voice, Internet and video services.
Burlington Telecom, the new fiber-optic public network operated by the city of Burlington, Vt., has deployed Tekelecs next-generation switching platforms to enable the launch of triple-play broadband Internet, cable television and voice services in early 2006 for the citys residents, businesses and government institutions.
We evaluated many products, and Tekelecs combined Class 5 packet switch and VoIP applications server was the best choice to help us quickly roll out reliable services for our community with minimal impact to our network investments, said Chris Burns, COO at Burlington Telecom.
Crocker Telecommunications, a family-owned operator based in Greenfield, Mass., delivers advanced voice and data services, including broadband Internet, ISDN, colocation and Web hosting, to business and residential customers in Western Massachusetts.
Tekelec delivers a flexible switching solution that integrates with our existing network infrastructure and enables the cost-effective delivery of the latest services that our customers demand, said Matthew Crocker, vice president for Crocker Telecommunications.
The Tekelec 7000 fully integrates with IP and time division multiplexing network interfaces, enabling a smooth network migration to VoIP while reducing operational costs.
The Tekelec 6000 VoIP Application Server integrates with Tekelecs switching platforms to enable delivery of voice, data, video and wireless services. More than 220 customers have purchased more than 400 Tekelec 6000 and 7000 systems.
We understand the pressures on local carriers to provide the latest new services while keeping operational costs low, said Tricia Hosek, president and general manager of the Tekelec Switching Solutions Group. Our combined Tekelec 7000 VoIP softswitch and Tekelec 6000 application server lay the foundation for IP-enabled services and allow operators to continue leveraging their existing investments.
