The emergence of VoIP telephony has progressed technology to a level where a computer server, known as a softswitch, is able to run custom software that allows it to handle and distribute phone calls. Softswitches offer the flexibility and software upgrade cycle of software, as well as the benefits of virtualization.
REDCOM (News - Alert) Laboratories Inc., a provider of digital and IP-enabled telecommunications systems for carriers, utilities, emergency response and defense applications, will exhibit its next-generation network carrier-class softswitch solutions at CeBIT (News - Alert) 2013, a digital IT and telecommunications trade fair in Hannover, Germany from March 5-9.
With REDCOM, service providers have the flexibility to incrementally migrate to VoIP in a cost-effective manner when it makes sense for their business, with complete legacy support and maximum flexibility of deployment. Next-generation networks (NGN) powered by REDCOM softswitches enable service providers to invest in the latest VoIP technology to drive their top lines while aggressively managing their bottom lines.
REDCOM will showcase the new SLICE 2100 Micro, which provides maximum interoperability and communications power in a compact package. Powered by REDCOM’s TRANSip IP technology suite, the SLICE 2100 Micro features an integrated media gateway, media gateway controller, SIP call controller and legacy support. The product is ideal for first responders that require an interoperable and highly portable communications node. Even when packaged in its ruggedized carrying case, the SLICE 2100 Micro is still small enough to fit in the overhead compartments of commercial aircrafts.
REDCOM will also showcase a full portfolio of softswitch solutions ideal for seamless network transformation, including the REDCOM SLICE IP softswitch, REDCOM SLICE 2100 and REDCOM HDX.

The SLICE IP softswitch delivers advanced network functions and call management for IP subscribers, such as IP centrex, bandwidth management, conferencing and SIP trunking. The SLICE 2100 is a drop-in solution for carrier IP migration, end office replacement and distributed cloud voice services that delivers interoperable communications to service providers, ILECs/CLECs and private networks.
The HDX is a powerful and scalable hybrid IP/TDM Class 4/5 softswitch that is an ideal drop-in replacement that facilitates easy migration to VoIP at the most opportune time for carriers, while still enabling service providers to retain legacy equipment. Carriers can make a low-risk, gradual migration to IP while continuing to support legacy devices like modems, fax machines and Point of Sale terminals. In fact, carriers can get started with just 100 IP customers and scale the softswitch as more customers migrate to VoIP.
