TCI installs new softswitch

3 Sep 2010

Telecom Cook Islands has begun implementing an upgrade to a softswitch based on High Density Exchange software from its existing supplier Redcom. The new switch was installed successfully on Aitutaki island. ‘The Redcom HDX softswitch was chosen as it interoperates with a wide range of protocols and interfaces such as the cellular network, and requires only a fraction of the power needed to drive the switch it’s replacing,’ said the telco’s CEO Jules Maher, adding that Telecom’s investment in the new switch was approximately NZD400,000 (USD285,000).
