GENBAND and Resolute Announce Pseudowire Interoperability for End-to-End Circuit Emulation Solutions.

ATLANTA & PLANO, Texas -- GENBAND(TM) Inc., a leading provider of IMS-based telecommunications applications and infrastructure products enabling converged IP multimedia services, and Resolute Networks, a leading provider of circuit emulation pseudowire sub-system and technology solutions, today announced that the two companies have successfully completed extensive interoperability testing between Resolute's CMX-1614 Circuit Emulation Component Module and GENBAND's G6(R) Universal Media Gateway.

The GENBAND and Resolute interop validation was triggered by specific requests from Tier 1 network equipment providers. Pseudowire solutions preserve profitable legacy services while enabling the creation of a truly next-generation network. It allows an operator to package any service, legacy or emerging, and send it into the network in a common format that both preserves the service's original features and delivers the values of end-to-end OAM&P (operations, administration, maintenance, and provisioning). By using Resolute's CMX-1614 at the remote site with GENBAND's G6 Universal Media Gateway as the central site circuit emulation aggregator, network equipment providers can realize the benefits of pseudowire by giving service providers an open/standards-based platform that can be quickly deployed to address the needs for such services.

"The proving of interoperability between Resolute and GENBAND is an early indication of a trend that will have significant implications for the Circuit Emulation Services (CES) market," states Don Sparks, vice president of product management and architecture at GENBAND. "The rapid growth in packet-based infrastructure means that CES is ever more important to service providers that have decided to converge all their voice and data services. The huge installed base of TDM-based customer equipment and the increasing pressure to keep capex as low as possible means that forklift infrastructure replacement of enterprise voice and data equipment is a central concern for operators' customers. By using CES in the access network, service providers support their customers using existing equipment while utilizing new high performance access network infrastructure."

"This is another example of the maturity of the SAToP and CESoPSN circuit emulation standards," adds Ron Cohen, CTO of Resolute Networks. "The standardization work of the last few years at the IETF, ITU-T, MEF and MFA on circuit emulation services is now allowing service providers to choose the optimal packetized voice solutions, whether it is VoIP or CES, from a variety of vendors, to suit the needs of their specific networks and applications."

Following this announcement, Resolute's Network Equipment Provider customers supporting the major access markets including Carrier Ethernet, PON, DOCSIS cable and fixed wireless, will now be able to offer service providers direct interconnection for millions of TDM voice customers using high performance access networks directly into carrier networks via GENBAND's G6 Universal Media Gateway and without needing to replace their existing, fully featured PBX implementations.
