Metaswitch Adds Up Security and Service Assurance for netplus.ch SA
Swiss operator selects Perimeta session border controller to protect new service innovations and SIP peering
LONDON, October 29, 2013 – Metaswitch Networks today announced that netplus.ch, the Swiss triple-play operator, is safely expanding its VoIP service capabilities, thanks to Perimeta and the MetaView Service Assurance Server. The two systems work together seamlessly, as demonstrated in this video clip. Netplus.ch is also boosting operational efficiency by using Perimeta session border controllers to protect new SIP interconnects as it ratchets up its migration from TDM voice.
“We’re about to add mobility to our existing residential VoIP service and Perimeta makes it possible to do that securely and seamlessly,” said Christian Voide, CEO at netplus.ch. “Perimeta works at high capacity and is the best choice for our needs, but what really impressed us was its combination with the Service Assurance Server. This gives us valuable call diagnostics across all our voice traffic.”
Netplus.ch delivers VoIP, Internet and TV services directly to around 150,000 subscribers across western Switzerland. It plans to extend the geographic reach of its VoIP service through affiliate relationships with other operators, adding further load to the session border controller function.
“As it embraces service innovation, expansion and SIP migration, netplus.ch is gaining maximum use from Perimeta’s flexibility,” said Ben Miller, VP EMEA sales at Metaswitch. “As traffic and subscriber numbers grow, Perimeta will cope easily with peak requirements and the need for added scale.”
