Metaswitch’s virtual Perimeta SBC helps power new BT One Phone service
LONDON -- August 7, 2014 -- Metaswitch Networks announced today that it is supplying its virtual Perimeta Session Border Controller to support the new BT One Phone service. BT One Phone brings fixed, mobile and office phone systems together into one service that is hosted in the cloud and delivered via mobile devices.
Metaswitch’s virtualized Perimeta SBC supports SIP interconnect between the BT One Phone core network and the network operated by BT’s wireless partner. In addition, Perimeta protects network services from nefarious attacks and manages packet throughput under all load conditions. Perimeta also makes SIP interoperability simple by normalizing otherwise incompatible protocols. Perimeta's highly efficient message manipulation framework (MMF) includes an extensive rules engine for treating SIP and SDP headers without degrading network performance.
Bottom line: Perimeta is a truly carrier-class, software-based SBC, built from its inception to operate on general-purpose computing platforms. Metaswitch’s virtualized Perimeta SBC can scale to thousands of simultaneous sessions and can be deployed on any virtualized cloud server, allowing BT to deliver a secure and stable service for its customers.
