After a comprehensive evaluation and a rigorous proof of concept study, Telstra Global Enterprise and Services (GES) – the Telstra business unit that provides telecommunications services and solutions to carriers and multinational enterprises globally – selected Metaswitch as the common platform for its Telstra Wholesale Interconnect Network.
Metaswitch equipment is now deployed in GES’s four global Points-of-Presence (PoPs) in Hong Kong, London, Newark and Sydney, and anchored by a Metaswitch softswitch in London. The deployments were accomplished via a simultaneous worldwide flash cut driven in part by real estate lease termination concerns.
