Metaswitch and HPE Partner with vIMS

Metaswitch and HPE are partnering to bring virtualized IMS (vIMS) to telcos via the Helion OpenStack Carrier Grade and NFV Director orchestration platform.

The companies said their combined solution accelerates fixed and mobile network operators’ deployments of advanced services including VoLTE on private, public or hybrid cloud infrastructures. This enables Communication service providers (CSPs) to capitalize on the transformation of services like VoLTE, VoWiFi and messaging to NFV, with dynamic on-demand scaling that is more cost effective to plan, operate and support.

“The integration of Metaswitch IMS and HPE Helion enables CSPs to take full advantage of breakthrough cloud economics when bringing advanced voice services to market,” said Brandon Harper, SVP of business development at Metaswitch. “The combined solution builds on our commitment to cloud native software development and furthers our close collaboration with HPE, which stands at the forefront of NFV platform and infrastructure virtualization.”

Metaswitch’s Cloud Native IMS Core solution includes the Clearwater IMS Core and the Perimeta Session Border Controller (SBC), providing a critical framework to transition communication services to cloud infrastructures. Clearwater is a cloud-native IMS Core built on a microservices architecture and open source framework to support rapid application development. Perimeta is a virtualized SBC that distributes signaling and media functionality across commodity hardware in the cloud. Combined, these products allow the Metaswitch vIMS solution to achieve an unprecedented combination of massive scalability and exceptional cost-efficiency.
