Orcon to become full Telco/Carrier with multi-million dollar investment
Posted on 23-Jan-2007 14:36 | Tags Filed under: News



New Zealand-based ISP Orcon has purchased a next generation IP-based voice switch from communications supplier Siemens.

The NZ$2 million purchase means that Orcon will be able to develop and deliver IP based communication solutions to New Zealand consumers and businesses.

The SURPASS hiQ8000 has already been deployed by many large telecommunications companies internationally, including Deutsche Telecom. The soft-switch is part of the SURPASS product suite, which together with other products in the suite provides for multimedia IP delivery, and will allow Orcon to deploy consumer and business VoIP, IPTV, fixed-mobile convergence and Unified Messaging solutions, as well as numerous other next-generation services.

Siemens will be lending their expertise and experience to the implementation project with the IP soft-switch expected to be operational from May 2007, meaning that New Zealanders can look forward to new services being launched in the later half of 2007.
