Metaswitch announced that Thai cellco AIS has extended its deployment of the Metaswitch Perimeta session border controllers from its 3G to its 4G network to enable development and delivery of VoLTE services.
The deployment will support VoLTE peering between AIS and other network operators.
“VoLTE peering offered by our own network and others will enable rapid proliferation of VoLTE services in the SEA region,” said Kriengsak Wanichnatee, CTO at AIS. “Perimeta’s high performance, unsurpassed stability and seamless interoperability with third-party products made our decision to deploy it on our 4G VoLTE network extremely easy. This extension of Perimeta’s role in our network confirms that the platform gives us the confidence and capabilities to rapidly deploy new services and scale quickly as our subscriber base grows.”
In addition to Perimeta, the cellco has deployed the Metaview Service Assurance Server (SAS), which facilitates troubleshooting and remediation should problems arise in service delivery and helps ensure that SLAs are being met, even in virtualized environments, said Metaswitch CMO Ian Maclean.
“Innovative carriers such as AIS are aggressively seeking to improve the quality of the VoLTE experience for their subscribers by interconnecting their VoLTE service with other operators,” Maclean said. “Our Perimeta session border controller provides the VoLTE peering and roaming features required by tier 1 mobile networks worldwide.”
