Suddenlink Communications has elected to migrate the infrastructure of recently acquired NPG Cable to Genband solutions. Genband’s S3 Session Border Controller (SBC) and A2 Converged Application Server will provide Suddenlink with an end-to-end commercial and residential SIP services platform including both end-user Web portal and voicemail functionality.
Suddenlink already utilizes the Genband C20 converged softswitch via a geographically survivable telecommunications systems core for delivering IP voice and multimedia content to Suddenlink subscribers.
“Having worked closely with Genband to support our rapid customer growth and deploy geographic redundancy capabilities throughout our network last year, we turned to them again to help us seamlessly integrate the NPG Cable infrastructure from a commercial and residential SIP services standpoint,” said Tim Thompson, vice president/Telephony with Suddenlink, in a statement.
Genband is also providing Suddenlink with a range of professional services to support this deployment.
