The system has continued to operate satisfactorily and has enabled user companies to provide added value to their customers.
The Central Teleswitch Control Unit (CTCU) has recently been updated to replace the obsolete hardware with brand new, modern, fully supported equipment. The old DEC MicroVAX machines have been replaced with HP Integrity 2600s. The operating system has also been upgraded to OpenVMS 8.3.
All communications lines have also been updated and internet access has been introduced in addition to the dial in access by modem.
The update has markedly improved the performance and stability of the system.
The new system went live at the end of January 2008.
