ALAMEDA, Calif. -- March 15, 2006--MetaSwitch today further strengthened its position as a thought leader in the rapidly-evolving field of IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) communications, labeled by industry experts as the network of the future, with the release of a technology strategy white paper detailing the vendor's innovative Multimedia-Enhanced Telephony Architecture (META). The META initiative complements MetaSwitch's increased leadership role in the IMS community through membership in the recently-established IMS Forum, to which it brings valuable real-world experience derived from deployments with more than 150 carrier customers.

Building on MetaSwitch's proven IMS-ready session control, media/signaling gateway and application server technologies, META is designed to allay these concerns. META defines a physical implementation of the IMS architecture that addresses legacy feature equivalence, service creation, integration with emerging "digital lifestyle" multimedia devices, back-office integration, and security. META also offers a real-world migration platform from the "legacy world" to pure IP.

"With META, we are responding to carrier demand for real-world migration solutions that build on the powerful concepts in IMS but can be deployed for new services and generate revenue today," said Martin Taylor, MetaSwitch Vice President of Technology Strategy. "In this context, we are pleased to be part of the IMS Forum to help ensure interoperability of our award-winning IMS solutions and communicate the benefits of IMS-based networks to a wider audience."
