Nortel Softswitch Receives PacketCable 1.1 Qualification

Nortel achieved PacketCable 1.1 softswitch qualification for its Communication Server 2000 (CS 2000).

Nortel's CS 2000 was successfully tested in this certification wave against the latest in Lawfully Authorized Electronic Surveillance Specification (LAESS) and Event Messaging specifications. The LAESS specification focuses on softswitches and their ability to deliver lawful intercept capabilities within the PacketCable architecture. Support of event messaging allows cable operators to generate call records for downstream billing and customer usage tracking, following the PacketCable architecture. The CS 2000 PacketCable 1.1 Qualification success follows earlier PacketCable 1.0 CMS and MGC Qualifications in 2003 and 2004, respectively, and EUR PacketCable 1.0 qualification in 2004.
