By Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributor

Metaswitch Networks, a provider of carrier systems and communications software solutions, said that it wrapped up its 7th Annual Metaswitch Forum last week where a record attendance of more than 800 service provider customers, partners and guests spent three jam-packed days exploring everything from innovative voice application development, hosted business services and cloud computing, to a live video link to the E/V Nautilus in the Aegean Sea and keynote from famed oceanographer Dr. Robert Ballard.

Officials with Metaswitch said that the Forum capped a full year that showed the company move aggressively into new regions as evidenced by its announcement of new customer Telecom Argentina (News - Alert), successful integration of the company's first acquisition, AppTrigger, and deployment of its 1,000th system into the Copper Valley Telephone Cooperative network this summer.

Metaswitch also announced its year-end results for FY 2009/10 which showed an 18% growth in top-line revenue to $134.5M.

"The past year has been one of transitions for Metaswitch as a company, and the industry as a whole, as we work to change the conversation about voice in the network," said Kevin DeNuccio (News - Alert), CEO, Metaswitch, in a statement.

DeNuccio said that the network is transforming with the evolution to SIP for all kinds of multimedia communication.

“Plus, the rise of SMS, presence and telepresence as fundamental aspects of the way we communicate will clearly define the decade ahead, creating tremendous opportunity for Metaswitch, our customers and the industry at large," he said.

Company officials said that a highlight of the event was the announcement of the first MarketVisionaries Award winners. Winners were selected by a panel of industry experts.

MarketVisionaries Awards were presented in three categories: product innovation, marketing innovation and business model innovation.

The event also hosted the annual Metaswitch User Group meeting and elections.
