Replace Your End-of-life Class 4 Technology With a Supported, IMS-ready Intelligent Call Control Platform

Many operators are faced with the daunting task of replacing their end-of-life class 4 switch from vendors like Cisco, Ericsson, Siemens or Alcatel Lucent. While there is still a need to support legacy technology like SS7, service providers should prepare their networks for next generation service delivery architectures like IMS/VoLTE and VoWiFi. Replacing your end-of-life class 4 infrastructure with the IMS-ready, Dialogic ControlSwitch™ System is the first step in your IP transformation process. 

Replacing Legacy Class 4 Switching Makes Sense

Migrating from an existing legacy switching platform to Dialogic technology makes sense:

  • Reduced OPEX - less space, power and spares requirements
  • Reduced CAPEX -  improved platform performance and pathway towards virtualization
  • Top line growth – address margin erosion with innovative services to attract new customers and keep existing ones
  • Operational efficiency –operational know-how for outdated, end-of-life equipment can be challenging and costly – the ControlSwitch System is globally supported
  • • Future readiness – Media Gateway Control Function (MGCF) and IMS Media Gateway (IMS-MGW) compliant for both NGN and IMS/VoLTE support
