SAN DIEGO--(CCNMatthews - Apr 10, 2006) -

Nuera Communications' cable telephony solution has been selected by three independent cable operators. The addition of voice services to their existing video and high-speed data services results in increased revenue and profits.

By offering the triple play, Troy Cable, Ellijay, and PTCI increase customer satisfaction and customer retention.

Nuera's PacketCable™ qualified gateways are field proven, carrier class products that provide efficient and reliable voice processing. The gateway connects to both the telephone network and the existing broadband cable infrastructure, thereby enabling delivery of telephony services to the cable customer.
