Metaswitch Launches Managed Voice Core in the Cloud

Metaswitch Networks launched seven new products and services for helping network operators quickly create, enhance and protect valuable services for businesses and consumers. These include:

MetaSphere Cloud Service -- the core of an operator's communications network deliverable from a cloud infrastructure that is 100 percent managed and maintained by Metaswitch, allowing operators to focus their resources on new business growth and service offerings. With a voice core in the cloud, operators will find it easier to manage, purchase and grow their communication services, quickly introducing new features from Metaswitch's most advanced virtualized telephony application servers.

Metaswitch Robocall Blocking Service -- a new service that protects operators' customers by automatically dropping calls from a database of numbers that have been blacklisted by service providers around the globe. This cloud-based service also leverages complex, weighted algorithms that determine the relative threat posed by a calling party based on geolocation, call volume and other historical trend data.

Insights - System Security Review -- this new service provides a rigorous review of everything from network functions to applications servers and management systems, enabling carriers to act on potential security issues and protect themselves from service theft. This systematic, multi-step process covers many aspects of operators' service delivery strategies, including network access connectivity, internal security practices and end user password strength.

vNOW - NFV Starter Kit -- this offering enables operators to step quickly into network virtualization without adding resources or skill sets. Building on standard Dell platforms, Metaswitch will install and configure VMware virtualization components, then apply the appropriate Metaswitch virtualized network functions.

MetaView Analytics -- this suite of analytical tools gives network operators actionable insight into the performance of their network, their customers' quality of experience and end-user use of unified communication services delivered from their Metaswitch platforms. Advanced data mining tools, interactive dashboards and reports enable operators to increase network efficiency, dramatically reduce repair times for customer quality issues, and adjust their product packages, strategies and pricing in line with actual customer behaviors and predicted use.

Accession Meeting 2.0 -- unified communications that scales to support hundreds of meeting attendees, adding webinar capabilities for thousands of participants, integrating with legacy video conference bridges and offering a low-cost alternative to today's in-room conferencing systems. A standalone client also extends collaboration capabilities to a broader addressable market, allowing service providers to deliver a differentiated, best-in-class complete web and video conferencing portfolio.

MarketVisions Complete -- featuring a new expansion to give network operators a suite of engineering, marketing and business planning resources that equip them to model, build and launch a leading business communications service fast. MarketVisions Complete includes training and consultative services; multivendor reference architectures; exclusive, dedicated, engineering resources; and a powerful configuration validation solution.

"Metaswitch has never been more focused or better prepared to help network operators take advantage of the growth opportunities enabled by a move to software infrastructures, and the products and solutions announced today are a strong testament to that," said Martin Lund, CEO of Metaswitch.

The launch coincides with the company's Metaswitch Forum 2016, which is taking place this week in Scottsdale, Arizona.
