ORLANDO, Fla. -- As the competitive telecom world gets together this week at the COMPTEL PLUS Fall Convention and Expo, MetaSwitch announced that more than 20 competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs) have adopted the company’s Secure IP Migration Platform for the Local Exchange (SIMPLE) solution, which integrates IP Next-Generation Networking (IP NGN) technologies from Cisco Systems®. Recent customer wins include BroadStar Communications and Norlight Telecommunications.

BroadStar, a leading provider of telephone, cable television and broadband Internet services in the Southeastern United States, worked closely with MetaSwitch and Cisco to architect a scalable triple-play solution for luxury residential properties, including condominiums. The design features Cisco integrated access devices (IADs) and Cisco 7600 Series Routers with a flexible softswitch application server platform from MetaSwitch to deliver multiple lines of high-quality voice and unified communications services to a single building over an all-IP access network.

“Our customers expect the latest capabilities with rock-solid reliability,” said Christian Alvarez, president and general partner of BroadStar. “MetaSwitch and Cisco are critical to our ability to engineer the best-in-class, highly scalable network that can deliver these services. We continue to look forward to making MetaSwitch and Cisco an integral part of our strategic growth plans.”
