Alcatel 1000 Softswitch E10

Software Release 26

The Alcatel 1000 Softswitch E10, Release 26, has been designed to accompany operators entering the NGN world. By either providing a stand-alone softswitch in a pure NGN environment or by smoothly migrating the installed base, Release 26 helps operators to implement their strategy. In both cases, the Alcatel 1000 Softswitch E10 is able to simultaneously handle time division multiplexing (TDM) and voice over IP (VoIP) trafc. The Alcatel 1000 Softswitch E10 supports trunking gateways (TGWs) in a rst step and VoIP access gateways (AGWs) in a second step while ensuring

full continuity of end-user services, full interoperability with the Alcatel 1000 E10 switches, full compatibility with network management and signaling interfaces as well as interworking with other NGN components. The Alcatel 1000 Softswitch E10 is a key element of Alcatels NGN portfolio. It helps safeguard service providers Alcatel 1000 E10 installed base and its embedded feature richness by providing a consistent strategy towards NGN, where Alcatel 1000 MM E10 switches become part of NGN migration. The Alcatel 1000 Softswitch E10 is the most cost-effective, future-safe and reliable way to migrate the installed base toward NGN.
The Alcatel 1000 Softswitch E10 is an important element of a cost-effective, futureproof, reliable NGN migration strategy.
