Leading managed services provider selects the only session border controller with the smarts to meet the needs of a cloud-driven business
LOS ALTOS, Calif. – August 22, 2018 – Cloud native communications software leader Metaswitch today announced that TPx, a premier national managed services provider, has chosen the Metaswitch Perimeta virtualized session border controller (vSBC) to deliver a full range of SIP internetworking and cloud-based unified communications services. TPx chose Metaswitch after an extensive evaluation of competing SBCs, noting Perimeta’s industry-leading Virtualized Network Function (VNF) performance and network-wide licensing as critical elements for cloud-based SBC deployments and management.
TPx’s unified communications, managed IT services, continuity and connectivity solutions all work together to “reach a higher state of connectedness” – with customers, employees, clients, suppliers, locations and applications. Headquartered in Los Angeles, with major locations across the United States, TPx has delivered 16 years of obsessive customer service and trusted advice to its customers. TPx now manages more than a million SIP endpoints at more than 80,000 business locations nationwide.
“As TPx has grown through strategic acquisition to become one of the country’s premier managed services providers, we knew that we could only build for the future by building in the cloud,” said Ken Norris, TPx Director of Advanced Voice Engineering. “It is absolutely critical that our vendors deliver cloud-based performance backed by a deep understanding of real time communications. Metaswitch’s Perimeta stood apart from every other vSBC we tested – not just through stellar performance but also because of its cost-efficiencies and practicalities of deployment. The network-wide, per-session licensing scheme ensures that we can remain flexible in meeting changing customer requirements and network traffic patterns, while minimizing any risk of stranded capacity.”
Advanced communication service providers continue to choose Perimeta for its:
- Architectural Flexibility: Perimeta is decomposed into a high number of microservices that are capable of being deployed in any combination to meet specific operator use-case and scaling requirements.
- Licensing Flexibility: Perimeta’s SBC licensing model includes support for VM-based licensing, distributed capacity management (DCM) and logically centralized license tracking.
- Cloud Native Credentials: Perimeta leads in SBC support for both private and public cloud deployment, is part of multiple vendor ecosystems and operates under many third-party orchestrators.
- “TPx invested significant time to evaluate a full range of industry SBCs,” said Micaela Giuhat, VP of Core Products at Metaswitch. “Their selection of Perimeta is another welcome endorsement of our leadership credentials and we’re privileged to work and grow with them.”
