About Ericsson Softswitch Solutions
Ericsson softswitch solutions are commercially proven systems that
provide a low-risk evolution from existing circuit-switched networks
to a telecom quality, IP multimedia service platform. They offer
operators the opportunity to utilize network resources for
next-generation services in the most cost-effective way, while
continuing to profit from classic telephony services. Ericsson
softswitch solutions enable significant savings through the efficient
and flexible layered architecture design. Layered architecture
supports separation and centralization of the sophisticated equipment
responsible for call control and network intelligence, enabling a
reduction in the number and size of main core network sites.
Likewise, the switching equipment is simplified in operation and
design and can be distributed to the edges of the network for maximum
transmission efficiency. State-of- the- art infrastructure minimizes
space and power requirements. Ericsson's Mobile Softswitch solution
supports common core for both 2G and 3G on ATM, TDM and IP
