Nortel Supplies IMS-Ready Solution for Israel's HOT Telecom

HOT Telecom, a consortium of Israeli cable service providers Golden Channels, Matav and Tevel, has selected Nortel's IMS-ready, carrier-grade IP-based solution.

The network upgrade, which is expected to be fully deployed by the end of 2006, will include the Nortel Communication Server 2000-Compact, a carrier-grade softswitch that supports industry-standard VoIP protocols and enhances revenue opportunities by making it simpler for carriers to reach new regions.

The upgrade will also include the Nortel Media Gateway 15000 Trunk Gateway, which provides a highly scalable and high voice quality solution to integrate traditional and next generation networks, and the Nortel Border Control Policy 7200, which provides an advanced media proxy designed to support VoIP services.

Nortel's Communication Server 2000-Compact softswitches have been deployed by more than 70 service providers worldwide including Verizon, BT, Telefonica and Cable & Wireless.

HOT Telecom also has an advanced converged IP telephony network at its Yakum Headquarters that uses Nortel softswitch technology. The network provides approximately 1,400 HOT Telecom employees with anywhere, anytime access to communication services such as voice, e-mail and multimedia collaboration regardless of device - telephone, computer or PDA.
