KDDI Selects Sonus for Converged Packet Voice Network

KDDI awarded a multi-million dollar contract to Sonus Networks, naming Sonus as its exclusive vendor for their convergence-enabled packet voice network in Japan. In the first phase, KDDI is deploying Sonus' GSX9000 Open Services Switch, PSX Call Routing Server and Insight Element Management System to deliver long distance functionality for their consumer voice service plans -- Metal Plus, MYLINE and Hikari Plus. In future phases of the deployment, KDDI will expand its ubiquitous network to deliver triple-play services to customers nationwide.

"By 2008, KDDI plans to have 100 percent of its long-distance traffic on a Sonus-based VoIP network," said Yukio Takahashi, General Manager, IP Network Engineering Division, Corporate Technology Sector, KDDI Corporation.
