Videotron ltee shed more light on its voice services vendor puzzle Monday, announcing it is using a media gateway from Nuera Communications. 

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.
