LAS VEGAS -- With Cable Voice over IP (VoIP) showing dramatic growth, especially in the lucrative business services market, MetaSwitch and Big River Telephone Company have joined to enable a significant source of new revenue for cable system operators.

Using Big River’s MetaSwitch-powered wholesale VoIP service, regional cable systems operators can simultaneously achieve several ambitious goals:

  • Launch feature-rich services to business subscribers

  • Add significant new sources of residential revenue

  • Create a package of services that will greatly enhance customer loyalty.

    Seven cable providers have already adopted the combined Big River/MetaSwitch VoIP solution, including Eagle Communications, NewWave Communications and Vista III Media. Big River anticipates signing up additional cable partners throughout the United States based on the success of these initial deployments.

    Based in Sikeston, MO, NewWave Communications provides cable television, high speed Internet and digital telephone service to customers in Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. NewWave has seen tremendous success partnering with Big River to launch MetaSwitch-powered digital telephone service.

    “Big River has been fantastic to work with. They took care of the entire process of adding voice to our service bundle, and are clearly very experienced in managing all telecom-related issues,” said Jim Gleason, NewWave Communications’ chief executive officer. “We now offer our residential and business customers advanced features that go above and beyond the standard telephone features provided by the incumbent telephone companies.”
