Cedar Point and LongBoard Demonstrate Cable Voice Interoperability

LongBoard, a supplier of open mobile convergence software for wireline carriers, and Cedar Point Communications, which offers packet-based voice switching technologies for the cable industry, demonstrated VoIP interoperability over Hybrid-Fiber Coax (HFC) networks. The companies said their joint solution will allow cable operators to provide truly converged voice offerings -- including a unified set of call features.

By integrating Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) with cable telephony solutions, cable operators could offer customers a wireless service that seamlessly hands off calls across both local WiFi and public cellular networks, using one dual-mode phone and one phone number, as part of a quadruple play of mobile voice, fixed voice, data, and video. Cedar Point's SAFARI C(Cubed)-LMAP solution enables cable operators offering mobility services to maintain control of their customers' calls. LMAP is a SIP-based server-to-handset software solution that delivers a seamless set of voice services over all networks. In addition, the solution capitalizes on SAFARI C(Cubed)'s existing integration with cable system operators' back office systems, accelerating time to market for converged services.
