Nortel’s PacketCable VoIP and Global Services will support Adelphia’s residential IP telephony.
Nortel (NYSE:NT) announced the selection of its PacketCable VoIP and Global professional services by the cable company Adelphia Communications (OTC:ADELQ) to deliver telephony services to residential customers in selected Adelphia markets.
Adelphia is deploying Nortel’s Communication Server 2000-Compact, a superclass softswitch that uses SIP to provide direct packet connectivity to other softswitches.
SIP will be used to allow the CS 2000-Compact to cost effectively connect to PSTN and also to manage voice and video sessions across Adelphia’s packet network.
Nortel Global Services will plan, build, operate and maintain Adelphia’s VoIP network, for which Nortel is acting as the network integrator to bring together solutions from multiple vendors.
Among the required solutions are the CMTS, MTA, flow-through provisioning, and interconnect components. Nortel will also operate and monitor the network with on-site resources, and act as the single point of contact for trouble resolution.
