New Service Broker Features from Metaswitch

Updated: January 07, 2011

Metaswitch Networks recently announced new features

for its service broker product in the first public move based on its acquisition of App Trigger. The new features are designed to aid service providers in transitioning to next-generation networks. Improvements to the product include baked-in interoperability support which, according to Metaswitch, covers “21 of the major revenue-generating telecom applications;” a service creation environment for XML scripting which will aid network managers in combining disparate applications; MS architectures offering interactive voice, video and messaging services; and enhanced SIP compliance, among other features.

Before acquiring App Trigger in March, Metaswitch provided three different lines of business: VoIP gear, application servers, and protocol stacks. App Trigger has helped Metaswitch to gain a foothold in the rapidly expanding service broker market.

Metaswitch CEO Kevin DeNuccio said that Metaswitch believes “strongly in the service broker market, and that, with our acquisition of App Trigger earlier this year, we have the best solution for that market bar none.”

Richard Martin writes on VON news that the launch of the new features marks “another step in the company’s strategy to become a major player in the carrier softswitch and IP applications platforms markets, the AppTrigger acquisition could be a prelude to a Metaswitch IPO either later this year or next.”
