Metaswitch SIP Trunking Solution Wins Product of the Year Award

INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine Recognizes Outstanding Innovation


ALAMEDA, Calif., March 3, 2010 — Metaswitch Networks, a leading provider of carrier systems and communications software solutions, today announced that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine has named the Metaswitch SIP Trunking Solution as winner of the 2009 Product of the Year Award.

"INTERNET TELEPHONY is proud to present Metaswitch with a 2009 Product of the Year Award for their SIP Trunking Solution. Metaswitch has proven its continued commitment to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "We're happy to recognize and honor Metaswitch for their development of IP communications technology. We look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future."

Metaswitch's SIP Trunking Solution, Business IP Trunking, with its unique and innovative capabilities, allows legacy TDM-trunking PBXs, Key Systems and IP PBXs to use IP network access trunks. The solution also supports hosted voice services, allowing service providers and customers to achieve mix and match options as their needs evolve, all while sharing common dialing plans and features.

In 2009, Metaswitch further enhanced its SIP Trunking solution to add:

  • Voice Quality Monitoring (VQM) - a powerful feature that allows service providers to proactively monitor the quality of service in their IP network.
  • Emergency Standalone for SIP Trunks - if connection is lost between the edge media gateway and the network signaling core, individual Metaswitch Media Gateways can take over call control and provide call features to the SIP Trunking customer.
  • Advanced PBX self care features - Metaswitch's CommPortal interface now provides an intuitive Web interface for customers to configure network-based services on their SIP trunks; helping service providers to lower maintenance costs and encourage increased adoption of advanced revenue generating services available through the same CommPortal window.
  • Service Assurance Server - records all signaling flows on SIP trunks to a high-performance database and provides Web-based access to detailed traces of all calls, enabling service providers to more easily troubleshoot interoperability issues and resolve problems and disputes.

Together with Metaswitch's existing proven broad SIP interoperability, these enhancements result in a comprehensive SIP Trunking solution that sets a new bar for manageability, scalability and reliability.
