Today Cedar Point Communications announced the general availability of its SafariC3 multimedia switching system for voice-over-WiMAX applications.
Cedar Point has made inroads around the globe with its SafariC3 switching platform before migrating the platform over to WiMAX applications. The Derry, N.H.-based company previously announced a WiMAX deployment with Grupo TVCable, the largest cable operator in Ecuador.
The WiMAX application will allow service providers such as Grupo to reach areas that currently can’t be provisioned by HFC.
SafariC3 is a fully integrated voice switching platform that supports TDM, packet and SIP-based telephony services. It integrates all of the elements of the VoIP switching architecture into a single unit to provide carrier-class performance and reliability, while increasing network integrity, security and privacy, according to Cedar Point.
“Voice over WiMAX is a natural evolutionary step for both traditional wireless providers and cable and telco operators seeking to expand their service footprints,” said Mark Tubinis, CTO for Cedar Point Communications, in a prepared statement. “We believe that the same qualities that have made SafariC3 successful in the cable and telco markets – most notably lower costs of ownership and rapid return on investment – will be of value in WiMAX-based voice deployments.”
Cedar Point will demonstrate its WiMAX platform at WiMAX World USA Sept. 26-27 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
