Just-released research by independent market analyst firm Infonetics Research puts MetaSwitch for the first time at the top of its global ranking of VoIP vendors for Class 5 softswitch licenses. According to the report, "Service Provider VoIP Equipment and Subscribers Q1 2009," MetaSwitch
is now the number one supplier of Class 5 softswitch licenses with 18.4 percent share. In North America, the company continued its leading position in the same product category, increasing its share to an impressive 60.1 percent.
As service providers seek ways to reduce the high operational costs of legacy networks, many are migrating to packet-based architectures, with IP session control, call feature servers, and media gateways playing a key role in this transition. Others are introducing new revenue-generating services alongside existing legacy switches. MetaSwitch's strategy of delivering a range of core VoIP infrastructure and innovative IP Multimedia Subsystem application solutions enables it to address a broad set of market requirements and maintain a strong leadership position.
