Tandem / Carrier Class 4 Solutions

REDCOM’s next-generation Carrier-Class 4 softswitch with TRANSip® offers fully integrated VoIP and TDM in an all-inclusive central office platform. In the transition to VoIP, the idea of wholesale replacement of network assets is not only expensive, it is often completely unrealistic. REDCOM’s next-generation Carrier-Class 4 softswitches bring VoIP connectivity services to ILECs/CLECs, providing an integrated VoIP and TDM migration platform so that you don’t require additional external boxes. REDCOM’s next-generation softswitch solutions with full-featured metropolitan capabilities, including CLASS  features, subscriber custom calling features, LAMA/CAMA reporting, and a call translator with completely flexible dialing plans. ILECs/CLECs who want to deliver NGN services need a REDCOM next-generation Class 5 softswitch that leverages and preserves all the functionality and investment in legacy assets, while offering safe passage to leap-forward VoIP technology.

Retain customers with built-in IP compression

REDCOM’s next-generation Carrier-Class 4 softswitch with TRANSip® offers a full range of capabilities that allow you to address your customers’ needs while you counter low-cost competition. Flexible compression methods help you manage low-revenue subscribers by reducing bandwidth usage, while retaining high-end subscribers with high bandwidth and premium services.

SIP trunking

SIP trunking using REDCOM’s TRANSip® technology suite with REDCOM’s next-generation Carrier-Class 4 softswitch is a powerful way to build your business. SIP trunking is a secure, cost-effective way for ILECs/CLECs to leverage their IP network to provide voice service. SIP trunks deliver a significant return on investment and REDCOM's TRANSip-equipped next-generation Carrier-Class 4 softswitch have extensive SIP trunking capabilities to ensure that your switching resources fit your business model for current and future growth.

SIP Trunking Made Easy

To get started with SIP trunking, all that is required is a REDCOM TRANSip-equipped next-generation system — which includes a SIP Call Manager — and an IP network, and you will be on your way to implementing robust SIP trunking capabilities. SIP trunks are used to connect two switches together. As long as each switch has an IP address, communication can be made from one point to the other. With proper network assessment planning and implementation, SIP trunks can deliver high quality and reliable service with substantial cost savings. 

Benefits of SIP Trunking for ILECs/CLECs

  • Higher margins due to reduced install/configuration time
  • Simplification of value-added services
  • Powerful bandwidth control/savings
  • Expansion into additional markets
  • Support for wide variety of codecs
  • More services delivered over the same pipe
