REDCOM announced today that Northwestel has selected REDCOM’s HDX softswitch as a replacement for a legacy Nortel DMS 10. The choice is expected to reduce operating costs at a remote site inside the Arctic Circle in Northern Canada.

REDCOM Laboratories Inc., designer and manufacturer of the world’s most reliable digital and IP-enabled telecommunications systems, announced today that Northwestel has selected REDCOM’s HDX softswitch for its network. The choice is expected to reduce operating costs at a remote site inside the Arctic Circle in Northern Canada.

Northwestel, which provides advanced telecommunications services in the Canadian arctic, needed a powerful, next-generation Class 4/5 softswitch that was extremely reliable, low maintenance, and low power, given the difficulty servicing telecom equipment in the north’s remote regions.

The REDCOM HDX provides Northwestel with a drop-in solution to replace the current legacy Nortel DMS-10, reducing power consumption while providing the opportunity to migrate to IP-based services in the future. It allows Northwestel to retain the investment in the existing network, and replace network elements when it makes technical and financial sense. With no planned obsolescence, and substantial future-proofing, the HDX will serve Northwestel long into the future.

With REDCOM’s patented distributed architecture, this solution minimizes the risk of single point failures, ensuring the reliability of the HDX softswitch with complete Class 4/5 capabilities.
