Victor, New York (PRWEB) July 15, 2010
REDCOM Laboratories Inc. announced today that Marshall Islands National Telecommunications Authority (MINTA), the Republic of Marshall Islands’ national communications carrier, has completed commissioning of two powerful REDCOM HDX carrier-class platforms for their Next Generation Network (NGN) core call control.
The REDCOM HDXs are the perfect companion to MINTA’s recently commissioned extension to the HANTRU1 Cable System, and bring Marshall Islands into the global broadband community.
“Completion of the REDCOM core switching and undersea cable is a momentous occasion,” said Tony Muller, President of MINTA. “The NGN developments will enable the Marshall Islands to connect to the global fiber optic network and break down the walls that previously isolated our nation and provide opportunities essential for national growth.”
The REDCOM HDXs replaced two legacy Nortel DMS 300 international gateways at the main communications hub at Majuro Atoll, and also the secondary point of access on the island of Ebeye (Kwajalein.) The HDXs now serves as powerful, next-generation Carrier Class International Gateway softswitches, immediately reducing OpEx with IP-trunking and carrier monitoring while offering a host of new revenue generating features.
“The REDCOM HDXs provide MINTA with drop-in replacements for the existing legacy gateways, while supporting IP-based services that will serve Marshall Islands well into the future. With the distributed network capabilities of the HDX, MINTA can optimize transport network usage, while enjoying protection from catastrophic outages due to typhoons, malicious attacks, and other debilitating events,” said Charles DeRoller, Director of International Sales and Marketing, REDCOM.
An important benefit of migrating to REDCOM’s “green” platforms is a significant reduction in electrical power consumptions. Not only do the HDXs draw 80% less power than the DMSs they replaced, but secondary savings is realized in low heat production and lack of air conditioning requirements.
“We selected REDCOM because of their reputation and response. The project went from design discussions to commissioned in less than 60 days,” said Ayapa Apuahe of Marshall Islands National Telecommunications Authority. “REDCOM’s concern and cooperation is unequalled, and they proved that nothing is impossible. We could not have done this without REDCOM.”
