Cedar Point Communications manufacturers a range of switching platforms that commonly target CableCo’s, CellCo’s & traditional carriers. Multi-Chanel Mobile news recently ran a story highlighting how Cedar Point Pushes HDVoice Upgrade. This came to my attention when Doug Mohney tweeted something about HDVoice “upconversion” as an aspect of their Safari C3 switching platform. Doug went on to post something about this at HDVoice News.
An examination of some of the literature on the Safari C3 switching platform reveals support for circuit switched and packet networks, as well as G.722 in the codec realm. The Safari C3 really does seem to be build around the needs of the packet cable community.
In the broadest sense this is great as it points to yet another player in the telecom space making wideband telephony a factor in their marketing. That drives up visibility of wideband telephony, which can’t help but be “a good thing.”*
I’m especially interested in the idea of bandwidth extension. I’ll have more to follow on that subject shortly….
