REDCOM (News - Alert) Laboratories Inc., a company that designs and manufactures the world’s most reliable telecommunications systems, will showcase its next generation carrier-class softswitch solutions March 6–10 at CeBIT (News - Alert) 2012 in Hannover, Germany.
Officials with REDCOM said that the company will showcase the new SLICE IP Micro, a complete Class 4/5 IP Gateway (News - Alert) the size of a hardcover book.
According to company officials, the SLICE IP Micro features an industry-standard Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based architecture, supports up to 3,000 IP subscribers, and is powered by TRANSip, REDCOM’s VoIP technology suite.
TRANSip integrates key IP Multimedia Subsystem (News - Alert) (IMS) elements in a single platform, bringing call management functionality while offering call setup, control, termination, and directory services for IP subscribers through the industry-standard SIP architecture for seamless interoperability.
Besides this, company officials said that REDCOM will also feature the SLICE IP powered by TRANSip.
A single SLICE IP supports up to 3,000 IP subscribers. Up to three SLICE IP systems can be stacked to operate as a single system when greater capacity is required, allowing one to triple IP trunking and IP subscriber base.
Other products to be highlighted at the show include REDCOM’s HDX and SLICE 2100 Next Generation Softswitch platforms powered by TRANSip.
Company officials pointed out that the HDX and SLICE 2100 are innovative hybrid IP/TDM solutions that provide a cost-effective migration to IP by maintaining the functionality and investment in existing TDM infrastructure, while enabling service providers to deploy IP services when it makes sense, eliminating forklift replacements.
TMCnet in April 2011 reported that REDCOM Laboratories has launched REDCOM EMS (Electronics Manufacturing Services) to focus on “serving the needs of small OEMs and young OEMs whose products incorporate complex, mid-to-high density Printed Circuit Board Assemblies (PCBAs),” company officials say.
Describing it as “the EMS provider with "OEM-pathy,” REDCOM officials say it’s the extension of REDCOM’s in-house electronics manufacturing capability.
