Metaswitch Supplies Core Switching at GMI 2006

MetaSwitch supplied core switching functionality during the recent Global MSF Interoperability 2006 (GMI 2006) event, which focused on the technical interoperability issues surrounding IP Multimedia Sub-system (IMS) deployments. MetaSwitch's core switching solutions were tested within the joint BT and Vodafone test facility in the UK and used to support advanced IP services that spanned the four continent network test bed. This year's GMI event marks the third MSF test program that has leveraged MetaSwitch's technology at its core.

The worldwide GMI 2006 interoperability event was led by five of the world's leading service providers, BT, KT, NTT, Verizon and Vodafone, and took place over a two-week period across four test locations, including the BT Advanced Research and Technology Centre (United Kingdom), the KT Technology Lab (Korea), NTT's Musashino Research and Development Center (Japan), and Verizon Labs (MA, USA).
