Cosmoline expands VoIP network

Greek telecom firm Cosmoline is expanding its VoIP network with Veraz's ControlSwitch softswitch, a Wireless News report said.

The report said Cosmoline planned to gradually replace eight of its legacy switches with a single Veraz ControlSwitch.

The initial deployment order covered 20,000 VoIP ports and would expand Cosmoline's VoIP network, which currently serviced more than 50 million usage minutes monthly, the report said.

Cosmoline's network carries traffic between the major cities in Greece and also internationally.

By replacing its existing TDM switches, which are physically large and distributed in various locations, with Veraz's centrally managed ControlSwitch, Cosmoline can leverage the ControlSwitch's smaller footprint and centralized location to reduce operating costs, according to the report.
