MetroCast Cablevision will use Cedar Point equipment exclusively for its voice-over-IP switching.

MetroCast serves about 145,000 subscribers in over 135 communities in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Connecticut and Maine. It will deploy Cedar Point's Safari C³ Multimedia Switching System across its footprint. 

The two companies, which said they have been working together for five years, said they are developing a field environment for the testing, trial and technological validation of advanced voice and multimedia capabilities.

The PacketCable-qualified Safari C³ is architected to fit within an IMS core network infrastructure, allowing network operators to leverage their initial equipment investment in voice as they introduce such services as video telephony and fixed-mobile applications.
