What is Voice Interconnect?

Interconnect VoLTE

Voice interconnect is the generic name given to the act of handing-off circuit switch TDM or packet switched IP (VoIP) voice calls directly between fixed line or mobile network operators (private peering) or by way of a 3rd party intermediary service provider (public peering).

Telstra interconnect case study

Case studies Interconnect

After a comprehensive evaluation and a rigorous proof of concept study, Telstra Global Enterprise and Services (GES) – the Telstra business unit that provides telecommunications services and solutions to carriers and multinational enterprises globally – selected Metaswitch as the common platform for its Telstra Wholesale Interconnect Network.

Metaswitch equipment is now deployed in GES’s four global Points-of-Presence (PoPs) in Hong Kong, London, Newark and Sydney, and anchored by a Metaswitch softswitch in London. The deployments were accomplished via a simultaneous worldwide flash cut driven in part by real estate lease termination concerns.

Virtualized PoPs: From Concept to Reality

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta virtualization White papers Interconnect

Wholesale carriers are now under constant pressure to reduce cost, improve quality, flexibility, efficiency and global reach, all this while increasing speed of innovation. Not a small order. Virtualization and automation are two of the tools that are now available to carriers to enable a complete shift in their network deployment and operation, which should enable them to better compete with the new breed of telecom service providers.

This white paper provides the background on those technology and business changes and offers an insight into why wholesale carriers need to be reacting now to this latest opportunity before it becomes a threat to their livelihood.

Perimeta SBC: Analyze datasheet

SBC (Session Border Controller) Analytics Perimeta Datasheets Interconnect

Perimeta’s network analytics is a key differentiator when compared to other platforms. Its analytics are fundamentally different, because they tell you why things happen. As Perimeta’s analytics are built into the SBC, you have automatic access to all signaling, even within virtualized datacenters where there are no obvious wires for probes to tap into. The time to simplify network diagnostics and troubleshooting is now. You need network diagnostics and troubleshooting capable of operating in a NFV environment today, before the industry as a whole finishes its move towards pure software implementations of network functions.

Perimeta SBC: Secure datasheet

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta Datasheets Interconnect security

SIP-based communications, and by default Port 5060, are increasingly becoming a target of mainstream attacks. With the advent of more advanced and sophisticated hacking techniques, coupled with the increase in VoIP traffic, ensuring the security of VoIP networks is emerging as a looming concern for Service Providers worldwide. This concern is intensified if the communications network is deployed in a virtual environment, as the security complexity is only further increased.

Perimeta SBC: Virtualize datasheet

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) virtualization Datasheets Interconnect

Perimeta is the future-proof SBC of choice as it enables Service Providers to migrate from the current hardware intensive architecture to the new telco software architecture. At its heart, Perimeta running on virtualized platforms is the same Perimeta software that runs inside our ATCA appliances and on COTS servers. Metaswitch’s Perimeta is the industry’s most advanced SBC platform. It enables a step by step transition to virtualization, using COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) server platforms (Dell, Cisco, HP, etc.) to start with, then migrates to virtualized Perimeta without MANO (Management and Orchestration), and finally upgrades to full blown cloud architecture with MANO.

"Session Border Control in Access and Interconnect Networks" white paper

SBC (Session Border Controller) Perimeta Fixed-Line Transformation SIP trunking Interconnect

Session Border Controllers (SBCs) are playing an increasingly critical role in two key areas of emerging next generation carrier networks. Access SBCs and Interconnect SBCs both manage and secure signaling and media functions in next generation architectures, such as those defined by the 3GPP LTE Advanced standards, but they have distinctly different responsibilities. The Perimeta portfolio of Session Border Controllers, from Metaswitch, is uniquely designed to meet these diverse requirements.
