Hong Kong (PRWEB) July 31, 2008
VSC Solutions and TelcoBridges™ Inc. today announced that they are helping Philippine Global Communications (PhilCom) expand the capacity and flexibility of its telecommunications services by implementing VSC's VS3000 eXpress Media Gateway solution, which is based on TelcoBridges award-winning hardware platform.
Established in 1924, PhilCom is the Philippine's largest and most prominent operator, providing voice and data services to consumers and enterprise companies, as well as Telex services to the financial services industry. New subscriber growth, plus the desire to expand PhilCom's "Voice Connect Plus" VoIP service, prompted the company to search for a new solution that could integrate its legacy equipment with a more efficient means to carry IP traffic.
To implement this new solution, PhilCom turned to VSC, a leading solution developer with extensive experience implementing IP-based solutions for Next Generation Networks and IP Multimedia Subsystems (IMS) architectures. VSC responded by providing the VS3000 eXpress Media Gateway, which utilizes the TelcoBridges' Tmedia TMP6400 hardware. PhilCom has configured the VS3000 eXpress Media Gateway as their primary softswitch and the existing equipment as a secondary softswitch..
The new solution brings additional flexibility, providing PhilCom with direct connectivity to IP traffic (H.323 or SIP) from TDM networks (SS7, ISDN, CAS, STM1, DS3, E1/T1/J1), while also enhancing overall capacity, and reducing the power requirement needed to keep the system operational on a 24x7 basis.
"After extensive testing, we chose the VS3000 eXpress Media Gateway to replace our existing softswitch," said Jose Francis B. Acantilado, CFO of PhilCom. "The VS3000 eXpress helps us grow our business, by providing a new level of flexibility to address our customer's needs, and it also features a price-to-performance ratio that improves our bottom line."
"We are pleased to be chosen by Philcom to replace their existing softswitch and expand their international services with our VS3000 eXpress Media Gateway," said Ivan Wong, CEO of VSC. "Our media gateway's rich feature set - combined with TelcoBridges' Tmedia TMP6400 -- offers a highly cost effective, reliable and flexible solution for Philcom."
"Today, Philippine Global Communications joins the impressive list of operators throughout Asia who are running their systems on TelcoBridges solutions," said Gaetan Campeau, President of TelcoBridges. "Philippine Global Communications - like China Mobile, Korean Telecom Freetel, and SKTelecom -- has extensive needs for scalable, highly-availability and energy-efficient systems to support its continuously expanding user-base. These companies have evaluated all of the telecom platforms in the industry, and have each selected TelcoBridges, because of our performance and our value. We're thrilled to work with Philippines Global Communications through our partner VSC, and we look forward to a long and successful relationship together."
