Siemens' SURPASS Softswitch Supports Cablevision's One Million Customers

Cablevision Systems is using Siemens' SURPASS Softswitch for its Optimum Voice service. Earlier this week, Cablevision announced that it has passed the one million customer milestone for the cable VoIP service.

Siemens' SURPASS platform supports multiple network configurations and has the capacity to support up to 150,000 subscribers in a single softswitch.

In July 2006, Siemens reached the 5 million mark for licenses sold for its SURPASS softswitch, which has been deployed by other U.S. service providers, as well as by service providers across the globe. International customers include Shaw Cable in Canada, Multimedios in Mexico, and UPC, Com Hem, Casema and Essent in Europe.
