SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Network software provider Metaswitch Networks today kicked off Metaswitch Forum 2016 with the announcement of seven significant new products and services that will help network operators quickly create, enhance and protect valuable services for businesses and consumers. These new technology and service innovations simplify the path to network virtualization and further evidence Metaswitch’s continued leadership in transforming operator networks and business models.

“Network operators of all sizes face huge challenges. They need to do more with their existing infrastructures, while they must also embrace more cost-effective and flexible software solutions. This needs not just new technology, but also new approaches to migration and models of operational support,” said Dean Bubley, founder of Disruptive Analysis. “The product and service announcements at Metaswitch Forum this week provide innovative paths through this maze, for both service providers and their integration partners.”

New innovations being highlighted at the conference include:

  • MetaSphere Cloud Service The core of an operator’s communications network will be deliverable from a cloud infrastructure that is 100% managed and maintained by Metaswitch, allowing operators to focus their resources on new business growth and service offerings. With a voice core in the cloud, operators will find it easier to manage, purchase and grow their communication services, quickly introducing new features from Metaswitch’s most advanced, virtualized telephony application servers.

  • Metaswitch Robocall Blocking Service This new service protects operators’ customers by automatically dropping calls from a database of numbers that have been blacklisted by service providers around the globe. This cloud-based service also leverages complex, weighted algorithms that determine the relative threat posed by a calling party based on geolocation, call volume and other historical trend data.

  • Insights - System Security Review This new service provides a rigorous review of everything from network functions to applications servers and management systems, enabling carriers to act on potential security issues and protect themselves from service theft. This systematic, multi-step process covers many aspects of operators’ service delivery strategies, including network access connectivity, internal security practices and end user password strength.

  • vNOW – NFV Starter Kit This offering enables operators to step quickly into network virtualization without adding resources or skill sets. Building on standard Dell platforms, Metaswitch will install and configure VMware virtualization components, then apply the appropriate Metaswitch virtualized network functions.

  • MetaView Analytics This suite of analytical tools gives network operators actionable insight into the performance of their network, their customers’ quality of experience, and end-user use of unified communication services delivered from their Metaswitch platforms. Advanced data mining tools, interactive dashboards and reports enables operators to increase network efficiency, dramatically reduce repair times for customer quality issues, and adjust their product packages, strategies and pricing in line with actual customer behaviors and predicted use.

  • Accession Meeting 2.0 Accession Meeting unified communications is scaling to support hundreds of meeting attendees, adding webinar capabilities for thousands of participants, integrating with legacy video conference bridges and offering a low-cost alternative to today’s in-room conferencing systems. A standalone client also extends collaboration capabilities to a broader addressable market, allowing service providers to deliver a differentiated, best-in-class complete web and video conferencing portfolio.

  • MarketVisions Complete Metaswitch’s compelling MarketVisions program is now expanded to give network operators a complete suite of engineering, marketing and business planning resources that equip them to model, build and launch a leading business communications service fast. MarketVisions Complete includes training and consultative services, multivendor reference architectures, exclusive, dedicated, engineering resources and a powerful configuration validation solution.
