Content Dam Btr Migrated 2010 08 Sonus Sonus Networks (www.sonusnet.com) introduced a solution for cable operators to add value to their existing home line services, dubbed "Fixed - Smartphone Convergence." Cable operators can use new capabilities in the company's ASX Telephony Application Server to allow cable subscribers with home phone service to combine their existing phone line with up to five additional SIP-enabled devices including 3G/Wi-Fi enabled smartphones.

The solution makes it possible for subscribers to receive or place calls using both their home telephone line (using NCS or SIP call control) and nearly any SIP-enabled device connected to the Internet. The solution will ring all of the devices simultaneously and allows users to make and receive multiple calls concurrently as well as allow calls to be transferred to other users. The solution can support up to five mobile devices in addition to the home number.
