Tecore integrates GSM and CDMA into single platform for Island operator

This one caught my attention yesterday morning — Tecore Networks, a leading provider of multi-technology mobile networks for emerging operators has merged GSM and CDMA into a single platform for Islandcom Telecommunications Ltd., the only locally based mobile communications provider for the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Just in case you were wondering, the Turks are 575 miles south east of Miami in the West Indies (thanks Wikipedia). Perhaps we should host an Unlimited Drinks event and SMS Text News conference there to check out the GSM/CDMA integration?

Tecore’s all-IP network bridges the technology spectrum providing connectivity for voice, text messaging and packet data. The crucial point though, for Islandcom, is that they’ll shortly be able to serve local residents and the global tourist population (think bucketloads of Americans on Sprint and Verizon paying megadosh for international roaming).

Tecore supplied a converged core platform, the GSM and CDMA radio access network, a customer care and billing system, and professional services.
