Cingular Expands Deployment of Sonus Gear

Cingular Wireless is expanding its Sonus-based, next generation voice network. The carrier has deployed a full suite of Sonus' SMARRT Wireless voice solutions, establishing a nation-wide long-distance IP-based voice network and has established gateway mobile switching centers (Gateway MSCs) across the United States. The Sonus-based network has been carrying live customer traffic since 2003.

In this next phase of the network deployment, Cingular is expanding its Sonus-based national service network to support increased traffic volumes. The expansion will also combine the existing Gateway MSC deployments, giving Cingular one of the largest carrier grade IP-based wireless voice networks in the world. Financial terms were not disclosed.
