Cable One Selects Nortel for VoIP

Cable One, which operates 52 mostly rural cable systems serving 715,000 subscribers in 19 states, selected Nortel as its primary VoIP technology and professional services provider. Cable One plans to launch full-featured primary line telephony services in up to 45 markets throughout the midwestern, southern and western U.S.

Nortel said its architecture would enable Cable One to consolidate switching resources to minimize capital, operating and engineering costs commonly associated with rural market network expansion.
