Videotron opens Nuera's media gateways
Videotron is using Nuera's PacketCable-based "ORCA" platform initially to interoperate with traditional circuit-switched-based systems as it rolls out service in Quebec. The MSO also hopes to leverage the gear as it eventually transitions to IP-based voice services.
"We look forward to evolving our network and the Nuera gateways as we introduce distinct and progressive softswitch-based services," said Videotron SVP of Engineering Daniel Proulx, in a statement.
Earlier this year, the MSO announced it would fuel its telephony plans with General Bandwidth's G6 Universal Media Gateway.
