Metaswitch Now Offering Advanced Carrier Services to Asia Pacific Region

By Jamie Epstein, TMCnet Web Editor

Metaswitch Networks, a provider of next generation advanced carrier services, has revealed new customer wins in the countries of Australia and the Philippines. These newly gained customers will help the company to increase its presence within the Asia Pacific region.

CallStream Communications, a relatively new Australian telecommunications company will utilize Metaswitch’s Hosted Business Services, making them small and medium-sized businesses all over the country, a press release stated. The company plans to stay true to Australia’s commitment of becoming a world-leading digital economy by 2020, through launching the National Broadband Network (NBN). 

“There’s never been a better time for CallStream to bring new cloud-based services directly to Australian companies,” said Grant Musaphia, director of TCG. “We also plan to offer wholesale business services to other carriers looking to accelerated deployments. “

Economic development is a huge factor that is leading to the rapid expansion of the network located in the Philippines, where Metaswitch now maintains four customers in partnership with Pastels.   New customers include General Telephone and Iriga Telephone. According to the release, both have plans in the near future to update their networks and will offer next generation services to all of their subscribers.  

“Operators in Australia and the Philippines see the importance of bringing the latest technology to their customers,” said Jeff Lattomus, vice president of Metaswitch Networks. “Customers are demanding new, innovative applications and the Metaswitch product portfolio is an ideal match.”

In related news, Metaswitch has just revealed that Chunghwa Telecom (News - Alert), a leader in Taiwan’s mobile, Internet and fixed line services market, will now be deploying the Metaswitch Service Broker. This collaborative effort will enable Chunghwa to utilize one platform that boasts the ability to deliver services across both its legacy and IMS networks. These services can be delivered to subscribers on any network simultaneously, without any effect to IMS capabilities, a press release claimed.
