Fujitsu Unveils Cost-Effective Solution for Carrier-Voice Migration

12/12/2003 - Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe Ltd, the leading supplier of high performance telecommunications solutions, has unveiled a cost-effective, integrated solution for migrating legacy carrier-voice services to broadband. With Fujitsu's new GeoStream Integrated Voice and Data ADSL Line Card (IV-LCSS), the same exchange equipment supports conventional and broadband services concurrently. This ensures that traditional voice revenues can be generated from a new network platform without any customer disruption. For voice-only customers, the upgrade process to broadband is handled by straightforward remote configuration, eliminating the need for engineer intervention at the exchange. With the IV-LCSS, the door is also opened on a cross-section of innovative possibilities, such as customers enabling their broadband access via the web, and the integration of voice and data services.

Fujitsu has designed the IV-LCSS to fit into any slot on its existing widely deployed multi-service access node equipment - the GeoStream Access Gateway. It allows the termination and packetisation of the baseband POTS, enabling voice traffic to be transported via the packet-based network. In effect, Fujitsu's IV-LCSS provides a single solution that eliminates three existing line cards - the external splitter card, ADSL line card and the existing POTS line card - combining major cost savings with a fast, efficient migration solution.

In summary, the Fujitsu IV-LCSS provides the following key features:

The IV-LCSS allows network operators to migrate their customers' baseband voice traffic onto the broadband network - without having to visit the customer or change any existing CPE.
