Cloud Native On Top Down Under

SBC (Session Border Controller) Fixed-Line Transformation IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) Mobile Infrastructure

As network functions virtualization (NFV) matures, the conversation is rightly moving to the importance of “cloud native” communications software. At Metaswitch, we’ve understood since the earliest days of NFV that virtual network functions (VNFs) need to be designed for the cloud from scratch so that service providers can realize the full benefits of network virtualization.  Visionary operators like 2degrees realize this, too.

The IP Multimedia Subsystem Comes of Age

They grow up so fast, don't they? It seems only yesterday that the 3GPP gave birth to the IP Multimedia Subsystem and now we are getting ready to celebrate its Sweet Sixteen and turn it loose on the world.

Of course, way back in (Release) 2000 we didn’t even have a name for it, so we called it “All IP”. Supporting its newly minted acronym, the first IMS specifications were frozen in March 2002 under TS22.228 and promised a world where decoupled signaling and media services were delivered from highly decomposed network functions with well-defined (predominantly SIP-based) reference interfaces, providing modular scalability while eliminating the classic application stovepipes. Back then, each and every stovepipe was dominated by a large vendor who dictated every component in the service chain, often compelling network operators to employ expensive, sub-par, components while frequently forcing them to deploy more than one variant of the same product. Our newborn was going to change the status quo. Take the telecom world by storm.

Metaswitch & GCS Tackle Interconnect Challenges

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta Network interconnect Partners Forum 2016

Network interconnect is a challenging market for carriers and retail service providers. They face declining revenues and margins, while the volume of voice minutes is still increasing. At the same time, the transition from TDM to IP-based networks is progressing slowly, which means they also have to support legacy technologies alongside new IP-based interconnect. And the prospect for expanding into new markets to grow their businesses can look discouraging, due to the high cost of deploying new points of presence (POPs). It’s difficult to make a good margin in this market, to say the least.

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.
