Kabel Deutschland Selects Cisco for Cable Telephony

Kabel Deutschland (KDG), Europe's largest cable operator, has implemented an IP Next-Generation Network (IP NGN) solution from Cisco Systems to deliver converged voice, video and data over its cable broadband network serving the city of Leipzig. The deployment includes the Cisco BTS 10200 softswitch, the Cisco PGW 2200 media gateway controller and the Cisco AS5400 Series media gateways. The BTS 10200 softswitch provides processing of voice calls supporting the PacketCable Dynamic Quality of Service specification. Financial terms were not disclosed.

  • Kabel Deutschland (KDG) operates cable networks in 13 Federal states and supplies around 10 million connected TV households in Germany. In 2003, a consortium of investors, consisting of Apax Partners, Providence Equity and Goldman Sachs Capital Partners, took over Kabel Deutschland from Deutsche Telekom.
