Unisys (News - Alert) Corporation has expanded its family of communications platforms, with two new additions to the Unisys VoiceSource Express (VSE) line. The VSE420 and VSE46 can help telecom providers serve more mobile subscribers at a lowered cost.
The VSE420 is designed for larger telecom providers that have to serve tens of millions of subscribers. Each server can support up to eight million subscribers, and up to 24 million in a three-system cluster. Thanks to its multiple VSE clusters, it can provide support for a large number of subscribers located farther away.
Meanwhile, the VSE46 is designed for smaller providers in rapidly growing regions, such as Latin America and Africa. It can provide up to 2.5 million subscribers per system, at a cost-effective price, and also provides scalability for growth through clustering.
Both of them are based on the Unisys ClearPath server technology and use high-end members of the Intel Xeon Processor (News - Alert) family. They have improved power consumption, providing better performance per watt to reduce operating expenses. The two help providers add new innovative features to their services, such as automatic reverse call, reverse SMS, multichannel broadcast and more.
“We continue to expand Unisys solutions to help telecom providers generate new revenue, while continuing to reduce cost per subscriber through powerful, highly scalable VSE systems,” says Steven Chuey, VP of Global Communications Solution Management for Unisys. “The new VSE420 platform provides scalability that our competitors are hard-pressed to match, while the new VSE46 provides the same cost-effective solution for smaller service providers. In addition, our innovative service development environment provides fast prototyping and testing so telcos can speed up the time-to-market for new subscriber services.”
The two new solutions are excellent tools for telecom providers to consider, depending on their size and needs. They provide a lower cost and power consumption than many competing solutions, while remaining high in quality and capable of supporting a vast amount of subscribers. With all they can provide, it’s a nice choice to consider.
