Ericsson to provide Telephony Softswitch solution to Maxis in Malaysia

(PresseBox) (Hannover, )
Maxis has selected Ericsson's Telephony Softswitch solution as part of its ongoing wireline network modernization. The contract includes the deployment of a new international gateway switch and upgrade of an existing switch, as well as the provision of operations and maintenance support for five years.

Edward Ying, Chief Operating Officer, Maxis says, "The deployment of this next generation switching technology will help us accelerate our network modernisation exercise and enable us to be more efficient in delivering our services." "Being Maxis' long-time partner, Ericsson understands our needs and requirements. With the right solutions and a clear roadmap for a smooth migration path to the future network, Maxis is able to deliver the highest quality call experience to our subscribers," he adds. The solution, to be deployed in March this year, will provide Maxis with a scalable and flexible platform that will cater for Maxis' international voice and data traffic growth.

Jan Signell, President of Ericsson South East Asia, says that Ericsson is proud to be Maxis' partner in this significant project. "This contract is another proof point of our technology and architectural leadership. To date, Ericsson is leading the market with more than 60 fixed and mobile commercially launched softswitch networks."

Ericsson softswitch solutions, targeting both fixed and mobile operators, enable voice and data traffic to be carried over IP. The solutions allow to reduce capital expenditures (Capex) as the distributed switching architecture enables efficient node consolidation. The solutions also bring down the operators' Opex due to the simplified operations and maintenance as well as the network planning. Business cases around the world have shown core network Opex savings are of up to 50%.

About Ericsson Softswitch Solutions
Ericsson softswitch solutions are commercially proven systems that provide a low-risk evolution from existing circuit-switched networks to a telecom quality, IP multimedia service platform. They offer operators the opportunity to utilize network resources for next-generation services in the most cost-effective way, while continuing to profit from classic telephony services. Ericsson softswitch solutions enable significant savings through the efficient and flexible layered architecture design. Layered architecture supports separation and centralization of the sophisticated equipment responsible for call control and network intelligence, enabling a reduction in the number and size of main core network sites.

Likewise, the switching equipment is simplified in operation and design and can be distributed to the edges of the network for maximum transmission efficiency. State-of- the- art infrastructure minimizes space and power requirements. Ericsson's Mobile Softswitch solution supports common core for both 2G and 3G on ATM, TDM and IP protocols.
