Stick a fork in it, Cook Islands’ upgrade is done

14 Jan 2008

Telecom Cook Islands has completed the commercial deployment of ADC’s UltraWave GSM softswitch. The new softswitch – which upgrades the carrier’s core wireless network to more efficient, IP-based technology in order to reduce costs and enable value-added services such as integrated SMS, voicemail, GPRS and pre-paid calling – has been in deployment since September 2007, and the final network cutover was accomplished last week. The UltraWave solution includes an overall expansion of the network’s capacity from 8,000 to 15,000 GSM subscribers.
