4th Generation Communications | Metaswitch

Keywords: Mobile Handsets

Metaswitch solutions embody the 4th generation of communications.  It’s an applications culture and our entire product portfolio is architected with a view to delivering innovative, immersive, communications solutions to a new generation of consumers. 


How a consumer interacts with a network operator’s service offering is the ultimate key to its success.  CommPortal is a cross-platform user interface that brings the power of Metaswitch residential and enterprise offerings to a PC screen, web pages, TVs and mobile handsets.  CommPortal provides a unified messaging interface with centralized contacts and granular control rulesets that enable individuals or business groups to determine when and where they receive calls.  CommPortal Communicator extends Metaswitch voice and video calling down to the desktop or cell phone.  A complete unified communications client, it includes a feature-rich softphone with instant messaging and presence.  For the enterprise and the home, CommPortal Communicator can integrate with Outlook or Facebook.  It’s the only IM client your customers will need.   


The Colibria product suite enables mobile service providers to deploy a 100% standards-compliant RCS or RCS-e infrastructure.  With a portfolio of solutions that includes presence and availability management, an instant messaging server and an intelligent network address book, network operators can deploy mobile handset and desktop applications from any third-party software vendor that conforms to the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) Rich Communications Suite.  RCS enables revenue-generating services that extend a carrier’s brand beyond the signal strength icon into contact and communication apps that a new generation of consumers use to constantly keep in touch.  As a global implementation standard, these solutions are carrier-independent, affording a genuine alternative to over the top (OTT) providers. Motivation for deploying this intelligence in the network is obvious: Own the contact, and you own the customer.


Are over the top services putting you under attack?  Do you want to extend your brand in mobility or defend your wireless turf?  If your business is under siege from OTT providers, enlist Metaswitch to help fight back.  Thrutu is a cloud based application that allows your customers to impulsively share media, location and social information, or to play games, pay bills and more at the push of a Thrutu button – all during a regular phone conversation.  Thrutu is already helping drive switched minutes on your network through the promotion of more frequent calls and longer hold times.  By encouraging impulsive contextual sharing and fun, spontaneous, activities, Thrutu can also drive data usage, further increasing your ARPU and spurring the adoption of lucrative, high-end, data plans.  We also have solutions for business and social phone pages, allowing your customers to push really useful data to the calling party, further encouraging business interaction or simplifying any transaction.

SIP Infrastructure | Metaswitch

The SSR simplifies core SIP routing, untangling the mesh of static route table entries on the ever-growing number of endpoints which lack any discernable dynamic topology discovery mechanisms. Now that SIP services are gaining a resounding foothold in NGN, the increasing number of endpoints, interconnects and sessions must be efficiently managed and effectively maintained.

In narrowband, broadband and wireless access infrastructures, the MTAS leverages the flexibility of SIP to enable a broad array of services, ranging from stand-alone residential or hosted business voice communications and messaging to complete multimedia telephony. The MetaSphere MTAS resides within the applications layer of emerging next generation networks that are transitioning to all-IP 3GPP LTE, ETSI/TISPAN or PacketCable 2.0 IMS cores.
