The SLICE IP is an advanced Carrier-Class 4/5 softswitch powered by TRANSip®, REDCOM’s IP telephony technology suite. TRANSip offers a variety of next-generation network functions and integrates key IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) elements, delivering call management functionality for IP subscribers. TRANSip supports all the features needed on a pure IP network, such as IP Centrex, bandwidth management, conferencing and SIP trunking.

Reduce OpEx & increase revenue

icon-reduce-increase.jpgREDCOM’s SLICE IP allows service providers to deploy flexible networks that can adapt to increasing end-user demands and competitive industry dynamics at a lower operating cost. The SLICE IP’s  compact, energy-efficient design consumes 90% less power than legacy switches, saving money every month. Furthermore, service providers can decrease costs and grow revenues by using broadband to deliver new services and features to subscribers.

Designed with the future in mind

icon-transition.jpgThe SLICE IP’s wide range of features and flexibility allow for seamless network transformation. The SLICE IP is compatible with standards-based SIP phones, eliminating any risk of being trapped by proprietary VoIP devices or protocols. Finally, the SLICE IP looks to the future with full support for dual-stack IPv4/IPv6.

The lowest total cost of ownership

icon-cash.jpgDon’t burn your OpEx budget with the recurring costs of multi-year maintenance contracts. SLICE IP owners enjoy NO scheduled maintenance, NO annual service contracts, and NO forced upgrades. Carriers realize a substantial reduction in OpEx when replacing legacy exchanges. Considering that recurring maintenance and service contracts typically double the price of most softswitches within four or five years, it’s comforting to know that lifetime costs for the SLICE IP won’t be much more than the initial purchase.

Remote/access solutions

icon-remote.jpgReduce power costs and leverage broadband technology by phasing out aging remote/RDT access in favor of a Multi-Service Access Node (MSAN) or Broadband Loop Carrier (BLC) via GR-303, SIP or MGCP/NCS. Traditional analog telephones can also be individually registered to the SLICE IP via Analog Telephone Adapters (ATA).

Network management made easy

icon-networkmgmt.jpgREDCOM’s Maintenance and Administration User Interface (MAUI) is an easy-to-use GUI network manager. MAUI’s intuitive design allows you to navigate through the program using graphical screens and commands. Everything you need to know about your SLICE IP system is just a mouse-click away.

Add revenue with IP Centrex services

icon-centrex.jpgThe SLICE IP allows service providers to deploy IP Centrex services on their network as an alternative to customer-owned PABXs. Service providers can generate new revenue by offering their business customers all the benefits of PBX features without the expense of traditional PBX systems. This is a win-win scenario for both telecom service providers and business customers.

SIP trunking made easy

icon-siptrunk.jpgSIP trunking with a REDCOM SLICE IP is a powerful way to reduce operating expenses and grow revenues. SIP trunking allows service providers to leverage their existing IP data networks to also provide packet voice services. Carriers can save money by optimizing bandwidth usage with compression. Each SLICE IP supports up to 1024 simultaneous SIP sessions.

Secure & encrypted communications

icon-secure.jpgTRANSip, REDCOM’s VoIP technology suite, offers an additional layer of security for VoIP traffic with the ability to encrypt calls. Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol (SRTP) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) are available to encrypt the SIP call signaling and client authentication to ensure confidential communications.

Application development API

icon-api.jpg“Killer Apps” may be an outdated term, but the business is still alive. Create custom softswitch and media gateway applications with REDCOM’s Application Programming Interface (API). The SLICE IP is the perfect platform for carrier-class prototyping and developing unique applications to drive new revenue sources.
