Network interconnect has never been more challenging and exciting than it is today. Network operators are under tremendous pressure to cope with increasing traffic volumes and declining per-minute voice prices, all while minimizing costs, expanding coverage and introducing new services to generate additional revenue. Meantime, the shift from TDM-based traffic to IP is accelerating and the transition to virtualization is poised to unleash a flood of new challenges, opportunities and competitors.

Events Forum 2016

Love this.  In 2011, we had a Metaswitch Forum themed "the Power of M" where we looked at many ways in which words beginning with the letter M were powering network operators' business.  A project being "driven" by our keynote speaker was recently laid out in the spirt of this year's theme "new models for network operators."

Metaswitch | Mar 1, 2016 8:36:11 PM


With the aisle carpets up and the booths down, people are calling MWC 2016 a wrap. For us here at Metaswitch, however, we see it as just the beginning. Now the dust has finally settled, we are getting the full picture of our impact at this event and just how ready the global Service Provider community is for “Constructive Disruption” from their suppliers and within their network infrastructure. There’s work to be done and Metaswitch, along with our partners, are obviously being seen as the ones who can deliver.
