REDCOM's history with Class 4/5 Softswitches
With more than 40 years of experience, REDCOM has worked with hundreds of customers to develop a sensible way forward for their networks. We have experience replacing end-of-life switches from Metaswitch, Coppercom, Taqua, Nortel, Ribbon (Taqua) or Genband. We can replace and consolidate your old switches, or employ a cap and grow strategy that allows you to migrate at your own pace.
Let’s find out how REDCOM can help
Success Story: Real Customer. Real Savings.
The state of Iowa has the largest number of independent telecommunications providers in the United States. When looking to purchase new equipment, each service provider often looks to another to provide references on companies they trust. In 2007, the North English Cooperation Telephone Company purchased a Taqua switching system. Ten years later, the system had effectively reached the end of its life. North English knew they had to migrate to packet voice (VoIP), but the cost to do so with their existing switch was prohibitive.
After receiving positive references from other REDCOM® customers in the state of Iowa, North English Cooperation decided to purchase a REDCOM HDX® in 2017. REDCOM’s HDX is a fully integrated softswitch and media gateway platform that delivers consistently reliable core switching for class 4/5 service providers.
“We changed out an existing CO switch with an HDX,” said Reed Ostenberg, Chief Operating Officer of North English Cooperative Telephone Company. “We were going with SIP and it was more economical in the long run to put in the HDX than to try to maintain the old CO switch which required an upgrade.”
