Chelmsford, MA -- Sonus Networks, Inc., a leading supplier of service provider Voice over IP (VoIP) network infrastructure solutions, today announced that Cingular Wireless, the nation's largest wireless provider, is expanding its Sonus-based, next generation voice network.
"We're proud to play such a critical role in the growth and support of one of the largest IP-based wireless voice networks in the world," said Hassan Ahmed, chairman and CEO, Sonus Networks. "Sonus solutions allow wireless network operators to seamlessly grow their networks, support the rapid delivery of new services, and provide the quality of service that is a prerequisite for any carrier-grade solution."
Cingular Wireless has deployed a full suite of Sonus' next generation SMARRT Wireless voice solutions, establishing an extensive nation-wide long-distance IP-based voice network and has established gateway mobile switching centers (Gateway MSCs) across the United States. The Sonus-based network has been carrying live customer traffic since 2003. In this next phase of the network deployment, Cingular is expanding its Sonus-based national service network to support increased traffic volumes. The expansion will also combine the existing Gateway MSC deployments, giving Cingular one of the largest carrier grade IP-based wireless voice networks in the world.
