For more than 30 years, Metaswitch has focused on providing help for service providers and their suppliers at key inflection points in their network’s evolution. We’ve helped service providers advance their infrastructures, retain their customers, extend their brands and reduce their costs through every major network transformation.
Since inception, our portable software solutions have lived inside the equipment of the leading industry telecom equipment manufacturers, underpinning both data and voice solutions. For the last decade, Metaswitch has established leadership in home-grown softswitches, media gateways, application servers, and session border controllers that have helped operators migrate to IP networks, where they can offer a full range of traditional and enhanced voice services to residential and business customers while simultaneously slashing infrastructure and operating costs.
Over the next several years, we see the business and architectural changes propelled by the Internet accelerating relentlessly, as single-service networks converge on IP and all applications of all types will be delivered as over-the-top and on-demand.
Metaswitch is a company that is, and has always been, a software company. We have a history of providing high performance software to the communications industry, while solving its most difficult problems. We strive to make this software available on commercially off-the-shelf hardware. We have developed expertise in platform application programming interfaces (APIs) and user interface design. As a result, Metaswitch has an enviable head start in network functions virtualization (NFV), with many of our products already operating within cloud-based environments. Our expertise in writing scalable applications and software for multi-core CPUs and cloud computing environments has helped us solve many of the problems associated with decoupling complex communications software from proprietary hardware.
Our rich history in developing robust, portable, protocol stacks also paves the way to delivering a new generation of carrier SDN controllers. These controllers will be essential for optimizing resources in tomorrow’s multi-layer networks, while delivering the on-demand bandwidth and flexible quality-of-service profiles demanded of applications that benefit from mobility, content caching, data center redundancy and cloud bursting.
Today, we’re delivering highly-scalable, cost-effective Class 4/5 switch alternatives, hosted business services, session border control, multi-layer transport SDN solutions, and access to core IMS technology that telcos can deploy immediately in a virtualized environment and adapt to their specific needs. With this combination of traditional strengths and contemporary smarts, Metaswitch can help service providers become software telcos and transition to a cloud-based, software-centric future.
