MetaSwitch to Resell Acme Packet Session Border Controllers

MetaSwitch has agreed to sell Acme Packet's family of session border controllers (SBCs) as an addition to its call agent, media gateway and application server product offerings for service providers looking to deploy IP voice and multimedia communication services. Together MetaSwitch's core networking products and Acme Packet's SBCs offer a fully-supported joint solution with proven interoperability and closely coordinated customer support, removing any hurdles and uncertainty for service providers making the transition to a next-generation IP network. When combined, these network elements provide core session control, media/signaling gateway, application server and SBC functions, and scale to meet the network migration requirements of service providers of all sizes.

The companies noted that over 50 service providers have already deployed joint Acme Packet and MetaSwitch solutions, including CLECs Engage Communications and Aero Communications, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Computer Services Inc. (CSI).
