Macau’s incumbent PSTN operator CTM has announced a MOP400 million (USD49.1 million) investment project – the CTM Network Modernization Project – covering its fixed telephony, mobile and broadband internet networks. The first phase of the project will last for about six months commencing on 28 September 2013 and will involve upgrading the software and hardware of the fixed line telephone switching system, so as to effectively enhance the stability, functionality and expansion capacity of the network to cater for the future development of convergence services, the telco stated on its website. The first phase will also include an enhancement of CTM’s voice-over-internet protocol (VoIP) platform, while strengthening the next generation network (NGN) to support voice, data, video and multimedia services. CTM’s main network technology supplier for the project is Ericsson of Sweden, which it has partnered for over three decades.
