Download: Softswitch Technology
Softswitch technology has shown rapid growth during the last years. Softswitch based PABXs have been introduced by all major telecommunication equipment manufacturers, and are steadily replacing the traditional, hierarchical type of PABXs. The integration with Computer Telephony and Voice-over-IP functionality are just a few of the new possibilities, which are difficult to achieve without the concept of softswitching. Growth of softswitch applications has been accelerated further by the availability of Commercial Off The Shelve (COTS) hardware and software platforms.
Softswitch technology can also be applied to TETRA infrastructure solutions. This article describes the benefits of TETRA solutions on basis of softswitching. Because of the TETRA specific signalling requirements, the use of softswitching creates even more advantages compared to PABX applications in which softswitching is now commonly used.
