Nortel Teams with GENBAND on VoIP Migration

Nortel will partner with GENBAND, a supplier of IP media gateway and infrastructure products, to offer new solutions that allow regional North American voice carriers to migrate to VoIP. The solutions enable seamless transition to VoIP for regional carriers while extending Nortel's migration capabilities to DCO and EWSD switches.

GENBAND's media gateways, when paired with the Nortel Communication Server (CS) 1500 and CS 2000, enable users of these legacy TDM voice switches -- serving millions of lines in North America -- to migrate to Nortel VoIP at a significantly lower cost by reusing rather than replacing existing line equipment.

Nortel will resell, distribute and support both GENBAND's G6 Universal Media Gateway and G2 Compact Media Gateway. These media gateways complement the existing capabilities of Nortel's CS 1500 and CS 2000, which already migrate existing line equipment from both the Nortel DMS-100 and DMS-10.
