26 May 2009

German cable operator Kabel BW has selected Nortel to upgrade its network to support voice-over-IP (VoIP) telephony and multimedia services. Nortel’s CS 2000 IP Multimedia Softswitch and Camiant’s PacketCable Multimedia policy server will enable the operator to offer multimedia services, such as video telephony, interactive gaming and multimedia messaging applications, to approximately 3.5 million households in the federal state of Baden-Wurttemberg. Kabel BW plans to use the solution to launch unified communications solutions and expand its triple-play packages to offer residential customers a bundle of VoIP, digital and analogue TV and broadband internet access; it will double the speeds on offer to 32Mbps downstream and 2.5 Mbps upstream. The service expansion will also allow Kabel BW to offer small and medium businesses additional services such as video conferencing and PBX functions.
