Nokia Bridges VoIP, POTS

Often overlooked in favor of the flashier cellular handset side of the family, Nokia’s network division has announced some interesting news at the Broadband World Forum in Venice, Italy. Nokia has launched a new solution for broadband operators, which — according to the company — will enable VoIP services to be combined with broadband. The Nokia Voice solution brings POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) compatibility to the Nokia D500 IP DSLAM, connecting traditional voice connections to a packet-based network.

The D500 supports SIP and provides the QoS features for connectivity with WLAN-enabled terminals and PCs.

The market for such convergence platforms is still ripe, as there is still a long way to go before the world is entirely communicating over IP. The entrenched TDM network is not going away any time soon, and solutions such as the D500 from Nokia are vital to interworking between legacy networks and IP-based networks.

The press release announcing this solution can be found here.
