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.
Quality in motion Great job by Metaswitch and Infracom Italia here. Meta continues to impress with stellar technical and operational excellence. Their global and mobile software telco march will serve their existing and future customers very well. At all levels of the organization... keep up the great work.
Light Reading is spending much of this year digging into the details of how automation technology will impact the comms market, but let's take a moment to also look at how automation is set to overturn the current world order by the middle of the century.
Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.
During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.
She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
