Cedar Point Introduces Comprehensive Telephone Switch Replacement Program Ensuring Service Continuity for Existing Subscribers

DERRY, NH--(Marketwire - March 16, 2009) - Cedar Point Communications, a worldwide leader in integrated Voice over IP (VoIP) switching technologies for service providers and enterprise telecommunications operators, today announced a comprehensive, cost-effective replacement program for providers who are using either TDM or VoIP switches that are nearing technology obsolescence. This program will provide a simple and smooth migration path to a cost-effective, next generation platform.

Many cable and traditional telecommunication providers are looking for cost-effective alternatives to their older equipment that can deliver the services they need today and the ones they will need to offer in the future but they are concerned with potential service disruptions and outages.

Cedar Point's replacement program is designed to ease those concerns by simplifying the migration process from their existing architecture to an IMS compatible architecture and mitigating any risk associated with service disruption. Cedar Point is bundling the SAFARI C3 with professional services that include network analysis, design, and planning for different migration scenarios. SAFARI C3's superior scalability and compact form factor enable it to deliver compelling total cost of ownership (TCO) benefits that minimize an operator's initial outlay of capital as well as lowering longer term operational costs.

"I have been responsible for the architecture, design and management of the Cedar Point SAFARI C3 in a service provider network," said Wayne Davis, Member, Cedar Point Communications Technical Advisory Board. "Cedar Point has demonstrated its ability to provide a cost-effective and technically superior platform for VoIP switch migrations. They bring considerable operational experience to bear on network migration issues."

"This program provides service providers with a turnkey solution, anchored by a proven carrier-class voice switching platform in SAFARI C3," said JC Murphy, president and CEO of Cedar Point. "We have included a complete suite of analysis and design services to accommodate multiple migration scenarios and simplify, what could be, a potentially disruptive situation."

Cedar Point has shipped more than four million SAFARI C3 lines to customers in the Americas, the Caribbean and Europe. SAFARI C3 supports up to 250,000 lines of capacity in less than a cubic meter of space, incorporating all of the components that make up the voice switching infrastructure delivering one of the best total cost of ownership available. It is being deployed for residential and business services by a diverse customer base that includes Cable System Operators, Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs), Class 5 Operators, Class 4 tandem operators, Wireless Operators and Universities.
