Nortel Networks has released an updated version of its Communication Server 1000 (CS 1000). Nortel describes the CS 1000 as a server-based, full-featured IP PBX which serves as the cornerstone of Nortel Enterprise Unified Communications deployments, providing the benefits of a converged network plus more than 750 world-class telephony features.
The Linux-based release 6.0 of the UC platform gives users freedom to use hardware from Dell, Hewlett-Packard or IBM. The CS 1000 v. 6.0 also integrates with Nortel’s contact center solution, Contact Center 7.0. Also new is the MG 1010, a services gateway for centralized communications app provisioning and augmented SIP support.
In conjunction with the new release, Nortel also debuted new IP handsets and announced enhancements to its conferencing software.
