Nevada Telephone has deployed Tekelec’s entire switching portfolio, including the Tekelec 9000 Distributed Switching Solution, Tekelec 7000 Voice-over-Internet protocol (VoIP) Class 5 Packet Switch and Tekelec 6000 VoIP Application Server.
Nevada Telephone, a CLEC based in Las Vegas, originally operated as an unbundled network elements platform (UNE-P) carrier and was paying an incumbent local exchange carrier a high rate for minutes, plus additional fees.
The company has become a facilities-based carrier with the installation of the Tekelec equipment. Nevada Telephone said that with the introduction of VoIP, its subscriber base grew from 115 customers to more than 24,000.
The carrier also has deployed the Tekelec 6000 to introduce new features for enhanced VoIP services, such as unified messaging, softphone, user-scheduled and on-demand conferencing, find-me and Web Portal capabilities that support visual voicemail, click-to-dial and integration of directories and calendars with telephony features.
