Initiates partnership to enable smooth migration of
carriers’ legacy infrastructure to Next Generation IP Telephony


Paris, France and Milpitas, CA – Jan 20, 2003 – InnoMedia™, a leading supplier of Internet and broadband access IP telephony solutions, and Cirpack, a leading vendor of next-generation public telephony switches for telecom operators, today announced the successful completion of interoperability testing between InnoMedia’s VoIP CPEs and Cirpack’s Class-5 Local Exchange Switch using MGCP, NCS/PacketCable and SIP protocols.

InnoMedia’s IP Phone and MTAs enable voice communications over an IP network. All are SIP and MGCP compatible, can be auto provisioned, and are simple to deploy. When used with MGCP or NCS signaling, they are managed by CIRPACK’s Class-5 SoftSwitch which owns the intelligence needed to provide services and control calls. When a call is heading to or coming from outside of the operator’s IP network, CIRPACK’s Gateway converts voice traffic accordingly (to SS7, ISDN or ATM for instance).

This architecture enables operators to provide legacy TDM voice services as well as next generation IP telephony from the same voice switching platform, further simplifying network infrastructure and lowering CAPEX and OPEX expenditure.

“We are excited about the highly successful interoperability testing that have been carried out between InnoMedia’s VoIP appliances and Cirpack’s switches. The combination of our high performance VoIP CPE and Cirpack’s universal voice switching carrier-class platform enables operators to smoothly introduce IP-based public telephony services,” said Dr. Amine Haoui, InnoMedia’s Executive VP for Business Development. “This partnership further solidifies InnoMedia’s strategy of delivering flexible, high-performance packetized voice solutions and will facilitate the widespread adoption of IP telephony technologies.”

“Deploying voice over IP services in a public network requires that several different devices developed by various manufacturers work together,” explains Thierry Dassetto, Cirpack’s VP of Business Development. “We are pleased to welcome InnoMedia as a Premium Cirpack Partner as this gives service providers a new choice of feature-rich and cost effective CPEs to enable innovative IP telephony services and accelerate return on investment (ROI).”
