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) was updated at the end of January 2008 to replace the obsolete hardware with brand new, modern, fully supported equipment. The old DEC MicroVAX machines were replaced with HP Integrity 2600s. The operating system was also 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 life of Radio Teleswitching has been extended through to March 2021.
