Metaswitch Gets Innovative in the Virgin Islands

Innovative Telephone launches all-IP voice services in St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas


San Francisco, March 21, 2012 - Innovative Telephone, the market leader in the U.S. Virgin Islands, has selected Metaswitch Networks as its strategic partner in bringing next generation voice services to the islands of St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas.

Innovative Telephone has been providing telephone services to the U.S. Virgin Islands since 1959.  Today the company serves both the business and residential markets with a full range of services including local telephone, long-distance, internet, cable TV, wireless, and business phone systems.  Over the past several years, the company has aggressively upgraded its network to become the premier quality provider in the territory. Last year Innovative received the St. Croix Chamber of Commerce “Business of the Year” award largely due to the modernization of its network.

“In 2005 we deployed our first Metaswitch solution in St. Croix,” said Terry Falls, senior vice president of operations and engineering at Innovative.  “With that positive experience and the company’s stellar reputation in the industry, we selected Metaswitch to migrate our entire legacy network to Voice over IP (VoIP).”

“We are excited that Innovative has chosen Metaswitch because of our expert design and overall management of their migration to an all-IP network,” said Jose Goncalves, vice president of sales for the Caribbean and Latin American region for Metaswitch.  “As a strategic partner to Innovative Telephone, we will continue to provide them with competitive and innovative new revenue enhancing services combined with quality support for this next stage of growth.”
