MetroPCS Deploys Acme Packet to Scale VoLTE and RCS

MetroPCS has installed Acme Packet's Net-Net Session Director session border controller to support its VoLTE and Rich Communications Services.  

Acme Packet's Net-Net Session Director provides SIP normalization, mediation, and interworking functions that enable operators to integrate network elements supplied by multiple vendors.  Specifically, the company said its solution protects and controls SIP sessions between the MetroPCS service core and LTE endpoints, and provides the Proxy Call Session Control Function (P-CSCF) in the IMS network. 

Acme Packet noted that these VoLTE and RCS initiatives extend its relationship with MetroPCS, which started with the management of SIP interconnects with other service providers.
