LONDON -- Metaswitch Networks today announced that Infracom Italia has successfully migrated and consolidated three of its previous TDM and VoIP networks to a single all-IP infrastructure built on Metaswitch.

Infracom is a telecom and data services provider with 10,000 network points across Italy and annual revenues of more than EUR 100 million. For this network transformation, the carrier needed full PSTN equivalence, including toll-quality voice and carrier-class levels of reliability with complete hardware and software redundancy to support more than 20,000 business and residential customers. It also needed a network flexible enough to offer IP-based services and unified communications in the near future, with the right level of support to get those services to market quickly.

Metaswitch's solution allowed Infracom to consolidate its legacy TDM platforms, older softswitches, feature servers and IP Centrex systems -- all from different manufacturers with varying degrees of support -- to a single network architecture backed by Metaswitch's expert support services.

Metaswitch's solution includes:

  • Metaswitch's Perimeta SBC to facilitate SIP trunking to other licensed operators
  • MetaSphere Call Feature Servers (CFS), for IP call signaling and business group call services
  • Metaswitch ATCA Universal Media Gateways for handling SS7 and PRI Connections
  • MetaSphere Enhanced Applications Server system (EAS) to provide voicemail, click-to-dial and a whole range of other features
  • MetaView Network Management System (NMS) servers for provisioning and management of the Metaswitch network elements
  • MetaSphere N-Series servers for hosting Music-on-Hold and Audio Conferencing.
