Metaswitch Enables Operators to Maximize Their Potential at Mobile World Congress 2018

Significant innovation in mobile services and cloud native communications software drives network automation, revenue generation and customer retention

LOS ALTOS, Calif. – February 22, 2018 – Cloud native communications software leader Metaswitch will showcase new solutions that allow mobile operators to increase revenues, improve customer retention and accelerate cloud deployments at Mobile World Congress 2018, being held in Barcelona from February 26 to March 1. These advancements range from the newly introduced MaX by Metaswitch to container automation and performance improvements for the 5G mobile core. Metaswitch will also join a number of its strategic partners, including Affirmed, ATOS, HPE and IBM, for demonstrations of joint solutions.


“In the last twelve months, we have won more than ten new VoLTE customers with our full-stack virtualized solution while the industry has also agreed that cloud native design principles are a prerequisite for network functions that will be deployed in the 5G mobile core,” said Ian Maclean, CMO, Metaswitch. “Now we’re continuing to not only advance our leadership in the development and automation of cloud native network functions, but also to deliver compelling solutions for the other side of the operator coin: revenue generation.”

Specifically, at this year’s event, Metaswitch will:

  • Give live demonstrations of MaX (by Metaswitch) that accurately reflect current operator trials. MaX’s multi-persona and group collaboration capabilities are revolutionizing mobile business-to-consumer (B2C) engagement. Demonstrations will also feature advanced chatbot integration to show how MNO customers can harness the power of artificial intelligence to improve their B2C engagements.
  • Discuss its innovative, mobile native approach to converged UC&C. Metaswitch is building on its clear leadership in UCaaS platforms and cloud native VoLTE solutions to enable mobile operators to bring a better user experience, collaboration service and workflow automation to large enterprises that need and want more mobility in their UC&C.
  • Provide real-world insight on the benefits of cloud native design when deploying virtual network functions. Building on a recent “VNF design for operations automation” paper co-authored with Telia, Metaswitch and another leading European operator will release a paper detailing a trial that proves how quickly and easily new mobile services can be instantiated in a cloud environment using containers.
  • Showcase recent performance breakthroughs in cloud native software-based data planes as an approach to delivering 4G and 5G services across massively distributed commodity clouds and Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) environments.

Partner Demonstrations

Metaswitch solutions will also be presented and demonstrated widely throughout Mobile World Congress 2018 in collaboration with partners, including:

  • Affirmed – Metaswitch VoLTE and MaX integration with Affirmed Service Activation Platform (ASAP) for VoLTE services. Hall 2, 2D50
  • ATOS – Metaswitch MaX implementation on Red Hat. Hall 5, 5G71
