Arctic Slope Telephone Selects REDCOM HDX Switching Systems to Serve Rural Alaska Communities

Victor, NY (January 6, 2010) — REDCOM Laboratories Inc., a company that designs and manufactures the world’s most reliable digital and IP-enabled telecommunications systems, announced today that Arctic Slope Telephone Association Cooperative (ASTAC) has selected three REDCOM HDX switches for installation at three separate sites in the upper reaches of Alaska.
