EADS Telecommunications, which incorporates the former Intecom, recently announced the next generation of its convergence platforms, evolving its PointSpan 6500 family to a new native-Internet Protocol (IP) platform called Nexspan. According to Stephane Angelo, vice president of product development, Nexspan updates existing products and also fills in some gaps in the product line. In addition to the high-end PointSpan 6880, EADS had the PointSpan 6550, which aims at the above-600-line market, and the PointSpan 6501, which serves 250 and fewer lines, but nothing in between. In the new release, the evolution of the hybrid TDMIIP PointSpan 6550 will be called the Nexspan 50 and the company is introducing the Nexspan Communication server, a call control server that can handle 960 IP phones in an all-IP environment. In addition, two new products aim squarely at the middle space not covered by the PointSpan 6550 and 6501. The EADS already introduced the Nexspan product line last year in Europe, where it has shipped to 5,000 customers; the recent announcement reflects the products' North American debut.
