Telrad Networks, a developer of carrier-grade telecommunications equipment, has introduced the Commatch 6005. Telrad’s Commatch 6005 is an H.248 to V5.2 access gateway, enabling fully-featured VoIP interoperability with legacy TDM networks.
Network operators looking to upgrade to Multi-Service Access Gateways (MSAG) technology based on DSL while preserving existing voice services and provisioning on legacy voice networks can now do so using the Commatch 6005 H.248 to V5.2 access gateway. Rather than implementing a softswitch solution, operators can preserve the investment in TDM switches by placing the Commatch 6005 gateway between the IP network and the TDM switch, seamlessly transferring all basic voice and advanced telephony services, such as Caller ID, call waiting, call forwarding, fax, conferencing and other services over the IP network to the TDM switch.
“Like other products in the Commatch line, the 6005 will allow operators to make a smooth transition to advanced IP core networks, without needing to transfer all the existing subscribers to a softswitch,” said Meir Bass , CTO of Telrad Networks. “Making the move to an IP core involves technological risk, so most operators are going to want to make the change gradually, first upgrading the network and the access points, and only later upgrading the switching. In order to do this, operators need to have access gateways such as the Commatch 6005, to preserve the existing TDM switches.”
Telrad provides a unique solution for rapid integration of wireless IP-based voice technologies with legacy systems. Telrad’s field-proven solutions quickly integrate into existing networks or new wireless mesh infrastructures, to provide seamless interoperability between TDM and IP based networks.
The Commatch product family provides reliable, field-proven products for the telecom industry worldwide. The products feature a high level of flexibility, scalability, full interoperability and carrier-grade robustness and quality.
